In all of my classes I practice back bends; they are serious heart openers and can often produce feelings of vulnerability and exposure. Sometimes, when I come down from some intense backbending of my own, I feel as if I have been on an enormous rollercoaster ride, all discombobulated, breathless and upside down.

I’ve never liked rollercoater rides; and the truth is that it took me a long time to appreciate opening my heart. I think I entered into it the same way I approach most beginnings: one vertebrae at a time. And it’s a pretty delicate process, getting to know myself in this ever-expansive way. I’m going slowly; descending from having been the kind of person who bent her feelings over backwards to conform to what I believed was someone else’s expectations, to meeting my own needs, wants, desires. It’s pretty lovely stuff.

So, I’ll proceed one vertebrae at a time, sometimes laughing out loud with gratitude and joy for the sheer wonder of opening up to myself, my new life and all of the possibility it encompasses. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Big Namaste.

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
