Inspiration For The New Year: Together We Rise!
I woke up this morning inspired. I had an incredible 2014. I am so grateful for this year. It came on the heels of a disappointing 2013. I had a lot of things happen in 2013 that I was grateful to leave behind. As challenging as 2013 was, I was grateful for the lessons learned. I was thankful for the opportunities to grow and for the new friendships I created, as well as the friends that moved on to find themselves in a different energy. The things that were holding me back fell away.
At the time, I was hurt and devastated. I thought I was being punished. What did I do to deserve this karma? What I learned is that the universe was setting the stage for greater opportunities by removing those obstacles that were in my way. Room was being created for great things to happen. I just had to have faith.
I am so grateful to the universe and to you for your support!
ONCE THE OBSTACLES WERE REMOVED THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED!
In 2014 I sold my studio Eastside Yoga to a wonderful new spirit that had new visions for my baby. I got to just teach yoga again and enjoy the new space she created and it is flourishing. It was time.
I taught my first 30-day Yoga immersion. It was a huge success. I am so proud of all my students. I was able to do this because I was fully invested in this program without the distraction of running a studio. I got to be all the way into my yoga. I met some of the most inspired and authentic people here. I spent 30 days with some of the greatest teachers of my life.
I was given the opportunity to co-create with leaders in the Yoga and Body Image Movement.
I was invited to the Practice of Leadership Panel at the Yoga Journal Conference in San Diego, California. (This was the dream at the top of my list)
I was in Yoga Journal! What! My big asana was in the October issue of Yoga Journal.
I met my mentor and soul sister Kerri Kelly and was introduced to the Catalyst Collective for change. I got spring-boarded into my passion with a group of exceptional beings who are changing the world. These are the new friends that have entered my life and have helped me define myself, my message and share my love!
I got to be panelist on Off The Mat Into The World: Beyond Duality.
I was interviewed for the Guardian Newspaper
I got to connect with so many incredible people!
I could keep going, but you get the idea. This all started with a belief. The belief I was deserving of having the life I wanted. The faith and courage to ask for what I want and then to take the action to achieve it. It is important to ask for what you want, but you must remember to work towards your goal by taking action. Start by surrounding yourself with people who have a similar drive and focus. Remember your circle of friends and your tribe (those like minded individuals) are your community. Only surround yourself with the very best people who are on the same path as you.
DO YOU WANT TO DO THIS TOGETHER?
We can do this together. Let’s start with figuring out our goals and intentions for 2015. Write them down on a piece of paper. Do this now. Let’s create a meditation together. I will create a 12-minute meditation you can download here and at 11:50 pm-12:15 am on December 31-January 1st, let’s meditate together and put those intentions out there. Together we rise. Now we take action with our 21 day yoga challenge and intention building practices.
Every Year is our year…but what will we do this year? We can do this when we support each other. Will YOU join me? I look forward to connecting with you.
