Ahhhhhh I’m pretty excited this morning! Ok, maybe I'm so happy I just danced around my apartment and spilled coffee all over myself.
Life is full of highs and lows and careers are no different. I’m doing my best to embrace it all - because I’ve realized more than ever during this last year that absolutely everything happens for a reason. It's hard to find acceptance during situations that feel dark and confusing when you’re going through them.
Put this on repeat: everything is unfolding exactly as it should.
Really, it is. It may not be unfolding the way you want it to, but there’s a lesson in everything if you stay open and receptive.
I get really, really overwhelmed sometimes. With the hustle of being a yoga teacher, with what’s going on in the yoga community, with having so many balls in the air at all times and knowing it’s solely up to me to keep them moving. Being an entrepreneur is hard. It's exciting for sure, but it's also tough at times.
Panic, drama - they’ve always kinda been my thing. Overthinking, overanalyzing, being overly critical and wanting to say fuck it all and hide under the covers. But I’m beginning to recognize that these feelings of overwhelm are okay. I take deep breaths. I make lists. I take it one step at a time. I direct the energy of overwhelm towards making shit happen.
Sometimes I still freak out and hide under the covers and watch Bravo, but I’m doing my best.
If you’re going through a dark time, do your best to stay open and receptive. Maybe you were moving in the wrong direction. Sometimes the Universe has to take action and drop a road block in your path so you veer back on course. If you're feeling overwhelmed, try to redirect that energy. Take deep breaths. Make lists. Take it one day at a time.
Remember: Everything is unfolding exactly as it should.
P.S. Two retreats launching soon…Mexico + Bali, here we come!
