Took yoga with @yogi_todd tonight and omg it was everything I needed. No specific core, moderate flow, advanced postures but no crazy transitions albeit some were difficult. And the message. Similar to my own this week - let go of the things you can't control. Choose joy.
I choose it! My sis in law @__just___julia__ posted this awesome snippet from a book about not giving a F*ck and it matched my motto today - just move the F on.
We hold on to grudges, our pains, grievances, emotions to justify our circumstances. Really just let it go already. I've had to train and retrain my brain in this art of detachment.
I'm still very much present and connected but I'm working on this piece of energetic distance.
I used to let dramatic people suck up all of my time and energy. Proving them wrong. Proving myself I was right. What a waste of breath. Nothing to prove at all. Just be the light & let the shine speak for itself
In this life we will draw and repel people as necessary. Just because someone was really good in my life for some period of time doesn't mean they stay forever or consistently.
I'm learning to let the well of love within me remain full with or without these people in my life.
True friends, family, coworkers stick by your side. Speak the truth and honor you. We all have moments where we are rude or bitchy, but it's not every other day.
I'm not everybody's teacher and I don't care to be every body's favorite. But I appreciate the students of my life who show up and apply what they learn from me. I'm honored to have you and you have me.
Life is so much easier with you beautiful, kind and truthful people.
Please life, bring me more of them and less of the assholes. #namaste #thankyou
