I never really get too personal but here is some ‘heart on my sleeve’ open-ness for the blog today.
For years I’ve been focused on discovering and refining my passion, “making things happen”. I was so intent on finding it that I may have had severe tunnel vision. A wise yogi enlightened me one day when he said “passion is a wondeful thing, but if it is not paired with compassion it is very difficult to be around these types of people.” This was an awakening.
I’ve started to mindfully practice my act of compassion towards others through yoga, on and off the mat- and although there are many layers still left to be unpeeled, I hope that the ones who stay within the circumference of my life will remain patient- whether personally or professionally.
I can’t help but be extremely content that in January of 2013 I said to myself I will find my passion this year, and at the very final month of 2013 I’ve found myself in the final stages of just the beginning.. my Yoga Teacher training graduation is this weekend!
Passion is the key to my abundance, and compassion is the doorway towards that abundance. Come January 2014, all I need to do is open the door and walk through.
Here, my [professional] heart on my sleeve! xx
Love & Light.
