I was given an out tonight. One that I was pretty tempted to take. You see, it would be so much more comfortable for me to go with my old sensibilities and say yes to the life that I know rather than step boldly into an opportunity that is completely new. But I didn’t take the out because I have learned that the greatest threat to my own potential is to live in my comfort zone.

Yoga has really been the primary reason I have learned that lesson so well. To be honest, the practice of it, both on and off the mat can be really f*cking hard. But completely worth the blood, sweat and tears (sometimes) that the process invites and awakens. And I love myself with such a greater intensity as a result of all of it.

At the beginning of almost every one of my yoga sessions, I invite my intrepid students to settle in and ignite the light from within,  going with each successive flow, being led by the breath: “It can be a beautiful release, a fantastically expansive experience, an opportunity to engage with the essence of who you really are. Try to be aware of the resistance to it as just that, a conditioned response that can be undone to allow  the Spirit of you to shimmer out, whole, vibrant and lush…….

And so, in love and trust, I’m going to take my own advice and begin……

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
