Beautiful Hannah

There really is something to be said for forward progress and a positive attitude. I know it sounds kind of hokey and almost old-fashioned but the philosophy has served me well through my intrepid trek out of the muddy depths of adversity. I’ve been shocked to see how much just getting up and doing it, and doing it happily, even if I’m faking it, has helped me.

I know, as a result of the experiences of my life that mine is a spiraled, spiritual journey; full of twists and turns and unexpected swoops and rises that will test me and take me to places that I have not previously been. Each occurence allows me to open up and experience people, places and things in a fresh new way. It is like savasana, corpse pose: I experience blissful death at the end of my yoga practice, only to reawaken, new, born again and able to live my life with an ecstatic exuberance that I had not previously encountered.

I trust these moments more and more every single day and believe that they are invitations to love much and fully express that love in so many varied ways with whomever I come into contact. This realization is such a big, big gift for me . I am already living it and loving it. How wonderful to feel so alive!

The video is a unique take, from one of my favorite Naples Florida teachers, of Bakhasana (Crow) to Handstand. This is a sequence that has not yet manifested for me, but I’m working on it. And I’m happy about it.

The beauty of my life is in the attempt, in thought word and deed, and the attitude that goes along with it. Knowing myself the way I do now, I know that one day, this really difficult group of asanas, practiced by the Beautiful Hannah, will emerge out of me as I open my heart to the next opportunity and the next and the next and the next……

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
