It’s a quiet, overcast day. Coffee warms every inch of me as I sip slowly, filling my cup over & over.
This black beverage is one of my shameless addictions. I love the bold taste, the comforting smell, the whole ritual of coffee & carefully preparing a French press to be enjoyed all throughout the day.
Mornings are simply my favorite time.
I prefer my mornings without words. Filled with a sense of newness.
Anything is possible.
Yesterday Virginia and I went for a long horseback ride with Tristin & Rawhide on the prairie. Through an endless field of sage with mountain ranges surrounding our view.
We openly talked about all the happenings of our lives right now. Discussed in depth how life moves in cycles. Each season it seems we are met with similar challenges, obstacles, karmas to approach in a new way, to learn a different facet of ourselves from.
We are joined with new people teaching old lessons.
Reunited with old friends who reflect ourselves to us so that we might better be able to understand the world around and within us.
We talked about truth. And what exactly that word means.
There are truths that remain & truths that change.
The truth of you & your very essence of being is a constant, though our beliefs about that truth tend to shift.
My life right now is totally scattered & moving slowly & unbalanced at times.
It is imperfect. It is uncertain. It is stressful.
It is wonderful & full of love & beautiful moments.
I want to commit to this place & building a home & forming deep relationships… all of which scares me to death. I want to feel secure. I want to feel like I belong. I want to let people in. I want to live with purpose & courage. I want to live with determination & dedication.
I know I can run, but can I stay?
I am ready to work hard. To push myself. To expand.
To open. To love more fully.
To do something I have never done before. And do it with quality.
I am ready to breathe. To inhale deeply & sigh it out. To let it all go.
I want my body to feel better. Lighter. Stronger. More hydrated. Nourished. Rested. I want to be in tune with the way my body feels & practice self-care techniques I know well but neglect to practice. I want to radiate more than I ever have. Be healthier & filled with a deep sense of well-being. I want to drop bad habits & fill my life with new ones.
I want to accept myself for exactly who I am.
Yoga has saved my life & I haven’t been a very dedicated practitioner lately.
I am ready to have a daily practice again. Ready for a bit of structure & discipline. Ready to learn from masters of Yoga & masters of life how to live & love & thrive.
I am ready to live intentionally & sustainably & simply.
A new season is upon us
time now to
shed the layers
drop the illusions
release shame & guilt
eat vibrantly & mindfully
move your body
