”Too many people live the same year 80 times and call it a life”
When we commit to learning, we continue to grow. We don’t allow ourselves to stagnate and grow old. We age but we don’t get any older. Life stays exciting!
Here’s a question for you: How exciting are your Mondays?
If you don’t schedule time for something that lights you up, Mondays are definitely not going to get any better. You’ll be like the millions of others that dread the typical work week…..which means you’re going to hate up to 3,900 days of your life or more.
Since I began teaching yoga, Monday nights have become my favourite night of the week. The students are rested from the weekend, and the energy in the room is high. I love their commitment to the practice, and to mind-body health. Most of all, I love watching the friendships that form.
The rest of my Monday is like everyone else’s: hours on the laptop and endless responsibilities. But for 75 minutes, I’m with incredible people, experiencing a yoga journey; that changes everything. It feeds my soul.
Life changes shouldn’t always be a result of dramatic illness or simply burning out. Every day you can bring something fresh, new and exciting into your world, whether it’s reading an inspiring book, trying a new class, or exploring a different neighbourhood.
I’d like to say that I started living a healthier life before I burnt out but that isn’t true. I needed the hard lessons first. That is what prompted me to study yoga and why I continue to study each and every day of my life. I wish you ease and grace on all your journeys, and the courage to do the things that feed your soul.
This week, I’m honoured to be graduating 50 students from Semperviva’s Teacher Training College and an additional 22 students from the Kundalini Crystallize Your Vision Immersion. Watching the personal transformations has been inspiring!
Keep learning, keep growing.
If you’re feeling like you need a change, you can join me for my new online Crystallize Your Vision Kundalini Immersion/Teacher Training starting next month.
