What is My Story?
“Running fingers through long grass as it waves gently in the wind, feeling the breeze rustle in long hair, the scent of dew as it covers the earth, and cool, clean air floating on the breeze. Barefoot and running in the grass connecting with the energy of the earth, walking in the quiet company of the forest, placing a hand on the trunk of a tree and feeling its soul connect deep within. The electric surge of energy through the molecular structure of my very being and the purest bliss to breathe in all that surrounds me.”
Behind my words lie many tears, many dark nights, hurt and frustration. There are memories of pain and loss, sacrifice and lessons learned.
The truest path that I have chosen has always been the hardest.
In order to ‘get’ in life you must also give. As I continue to receive, I continue to let go also. A pivotal moment in my life, a catalyst that landed me right here behind these words, is the day I chose to honour what I needed and change my life dramatically. I said no and I started leaving those things that did not serve me behind. I left my marriage, left my job, sold my house and moved to a completely new city. My life started falling in place when I started saying Yes to everything that felt right. I took a yoga teacher training program, started teaching under my own business, working at having a lifestyle that I love, met and married my soul partner and chose to love the life I have.
If not for my foundation that has built me and strengthened me, then the life that sits atop of that would not thrive and grow as it has and continues to do so. There are still obstacles in my path and I am learning to accept that there always will be. With choice comes adventure and I never know where I am going to end up when I hit that wall and choose to continue to live for me.
