I really really really love the title of this post. It’s my reminder to keep on the path of following my heart and bringing my mind back to a point of stillness. That way I can make decisions from a place of passion and wellness instead of re-activity and fear. Nearly five months ago when I embarked on my yoga teacher training journey, I really didn’t know what to expect. Anytime someone asked me why I was taking the program and would I be a yoga teacher, I cringed on the inside because I truly didn’t want to have an answer.
I wanted to let things flow and unfold. The other reason I cringed was because consciously choosing to NOT having a goal was scary for me. I’m the queen of to-do lists, goal setting, vision boards (which I still love and will talk more about in a near-future post). So not having a specific goal felt a bit like going on a long trip without packing my bag. I even went as far as kind of creating a response; I would say, “I have this business idea and I’m hoping to really get centered and work on the idea within the class process.” That was partially true, but the actual goal was to not have a goal and just be present for the process.
So far, the process has been everything I expected in some ways and completely unexpected in other ways. I’ve done things like write my own eulogy, study anatomy from head to toe, and explore the relationship I have with my own body.
Everything I am doing, with each yoga pose, with each blog post and each moment I choose to be present, I am doing what I love and staying tuned into the miracles and incredible opportunities to connect that are all around me.
