Come to your edge-reach outside your comfort zone 🤗🙄

“COME TO THE EDGE, he said. 

WE CAN’T, WE’RE AFRAID! They responded. 

COME TO THE EDGE, he said. 

WE CAN’T, WE WILL FALL! They responded. 

COME TO THE EDGE, he said. 

AND SO THEY CAME.  And he pushed them AND THEY FLEW!

POWER of words + gratitude

I have kept books full of my favorite quotes since I was a teenager.  Any words I liked, were meaningful to me, taught me something or changed my state of mind…I wrote down and keep in books. 

Now Cheryl Strayed has perfectly explained the reason why I’ve kept these words close to me for so long in her new book, Brave Enough.

“…I believe in the power of words to help us reset our intentions, clarify our thoughts, and create a counternarrative to the voice of doubt many of us have murmuring in our heads-the one that says, You can’t, you won’t, you shouldn’t have.  Quotes, at their core, almost always shout Yes!”

I shared her awesome words above and these quotes about gratitude in my yoga classes this week.  Thank you Cheryl Strayed!

Happy Halloween-What do you FEAR?

fear_quotes_images_free_7215645494What can I overcome?  What can I rise above when I’d rather run?  In the spirit of Halloween-this was my set intention for my yoga classes this week.

Fear-Quotes-30When you come to the edge of all the light you have known, and are about to step out into darkness, Faith is knowing one of two things will happen; There will be something to stand on, or you will be taught to fly.

What is my something solid?  How can I fly?
