Happy Holidays Yoga Community and Family
This has been a transitional and tumultuous year for many of us on both a global and personal level. May this holiday season bring you rest, healing and wellness.
We have experienced a lot of change in our business this year and through it all we are incredibly moved and grateful for all of our yoga students, instructors and community members who continue to support us in our goal of building a community of kindness.
At this time we ask you to join us in the tradition of Winter Solstice and the new year in letting go of things that no longer serve you.
Let go of comparing yourself to others
Let go of competition with others
Instead work on continuing to better yourself for yourself. Each day being better than the person you were yesterday.
Don't let your mistakes determine your future. Learn from them and allow yourself to grow and move forward.
This is a big one for us and the year we have had. We have learned a lot over the last few years about our business and about ourselves. I truly believe you can not fail if you never quit. Sometimes you have to adapt and change to make things work and sometimes things change without you and you have to adapt and know that everything is happening for a reason. You are exactly where you are meant to be and you have everything you need right now.
Let go of blame and guilt - Forgive yourself and forgive others. We all make mistakes and its easy to blame others sometimes more than it is to accept our own role in it. But its time to make a decision, if you can make things right do it and if not let it go, it wasn't meant to be.
Focus on what you have and find gratitude. Make a decision for the new year to find your joy and let that be your goal and your intention for each day.
For me this has been a difficult year and things did not go as I planned or hoped for our business or my personal life. I am not where I thought I would be. But I learned about how strong I can be when things feel like they are just not going to work out. I learned that I can not make everyone happy and that I am not responsible for how other people feel or respond. I have had to do a lot of letting go of things I thought I should hold on to - ideas, people, places. On the brink of a new year I am looking forward to new beginnings and pursuing things that bring me joy. Through this tumultuous year I have grown into more the person I want to be and less the person I thought I should be. I joined a flute choir and started writing again.
We lost a lot this year but in the end we gained time to focus on whats important - each other, our family and our friends.
My wish for each of you is that through what ever struggle you are facing that when you come out the other side you find your light. That little spark that is unique to each of us. Let your inner spark shine brightly on those around you and don't let it dim for anyone or anything.
and a Joyous New Year!
