finding my wings…..

Every Mother knows it’s tough when you child finds his or her wings and flies out into the world.  This week it was my turn to fly.

I have left the studio where I took my first yoga class, got my teacher training and began my teaching career.  It has been a wonderful journey and it took alot of personal strength for this shy girl to decide to move on from the safety of my “home.” I have been wanting to explore other studios but until recently haven’t had the courage.  Despite how I may appear in person or in this blog I am still very self concious about my movements and the appearance of how I may appear in a certain yoga pose.  While some may not understand my decision to move on, it was well thought out over a long period of time and difficult to make.   I am proud of myself and excited about this new phase in my life.

A very exciting thing happened this week and I hope not to “jinx” things by speaking of it prematurely.  I have been contacted by a national agency to tell my story in either print or on video about how while I am on disability and earning benefits, I am still going out into the world and helping others by teaching yoga.  This offer is what helped me know it was OK to make this decision.  It reinforced that what I do is important and that lots of people are recognizing my contributions.

Another positive thing in my life it that I am speaking at 3 different nursing conferences over the next 3  months on the benefits of chair yoga.  When I look at my calendar and my email inbox begins to fill up I am thrilled! 

Please everyone, find your passion, know it matters and reach out and share!!!

Today’s Gatha:

I develop a generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion.  I, like eveyone else, want freedom from suffering. I actively serve others to promote their welfare and relieve their suffering.
