Just leaving these lovely quotes right here. May they inspire you whenever you need a little boost ~ kick in the bum ~ or reminder of how beautiful and amazing you are...
For years the words "winter solstice" would trigger thoughts in my head :: cold, dark, long, Must Seek Cozy. The little blonde hairs on my arms would stand at attention registering the temperature outside. Amazing how our thoughts create a somatic response! But now when I know solstice is approaching ~ I get all giddy.
Hugs. Tears. Yoga. Music. Nature. Animals.
In no particular order,
all have helped soothe my soul.
For I have been in mourning.
I have been sad for the anger that rests in people’s hearts.
I have been sad for the fear that leads many in the place of love.
But mostly, I have been sad for the segregation. For within the
depths of my soul; I know & believe that we are all ONE.
And thankfully, gratitude for that belief is winning over the sad darkness.
Gratitude for a heart-wide-open yoga community that comes together to move, feel, and heal.
For the first time ever, I was close to canceling yoga class so I could mourn in solitude. Because the last thing I could see myself doing was talking. And when I teach, inspiring words tend to naturally flow from my lips. But instead of canceling class, I turned to music to speak for me.
Along with the hugs, tears, yoga, nature, & animals…maybe some of the music below will soothe your soul.
