Good morning and Happy Wellness Wednesday, friends!
It has come the day to share this will be my last Wellness Wednesday post. The growth of life has become so abundant over the year that it was necessary I reflect on how much of the things I love can be held onto one plate. The decision to release my permanent classes at the studio and remain casual was difficult to initiate. My heart held such a big piece for the studio and community and it felt as though releasing my permanent classes was cutting the last heart string of the suburbs as I fully transition into the city.
We know life is about growth, which is wonderful, though not always easy. Many of life’s lessons can be painful or difficult. Yet, such challenges are often the ones that present the most opportunity for spiritual growth. Initiations for growth come in many forms. They may be unbearable at times or call us to step up to the plate in ways that we may think we are not ready for. At such times, it can feel as if the world is testing us and that life is asking more of us than we think we can give. We may feel uncomfortable, anxious and unsure of what to do. However, life isn’t so much going against us as it is often encouraging us to grow.
During these periods, we can grow stronger by moving one moment at a time, as we work through our challenges. We may be asked to let go of old safety restrictions, shift old patterns of behavior, or step into the abyss of the unknown. When we do rise to the occasion, we end up better off for having made that journey. Not only do we end up learning and growing, but we inevitably become more compassionate to the challenges of others and wiser in the ways of the world. Our faith in the universe also grows because, ultimately, we can’t help but realize how much we are supported and taken care of all along.
Special Note: With this said, I want to share my immense gratitude for the YBD community. Thank you for sharing your practices, your presence, your stories, your love, support and endless amount of hugs. For holding space and providing warmth. You have grown me as a student, a teacher and human being in more ways there are words and there is no other community I wanted to experience that growth with and for that I thank you deeply.
let’s flow and breathe together one last time this Sunday, July 4th in Glen Ellyn at 10am (pst…i’m also bringing vegan donuts post class!)
See you so soon🖤
