Yes, you. Every time you sign up for an event, or come to a workshop to reconnect with yourself, or try a new pose in my yoga class, you inspire me. And you teach me, too. Yes, really you do. I would not be half the person I am today if it weren't for the lessons you have taught me.
For your courage, your sass, your strength, your curiosity, your creativity, and your super inspiring belief in yourself.
I love that you aren't afraid to change directions mid-plan, to acknowledge you changed your mind, to try new things even if they feel awkward, to shine your light as bright as you can even in the face of criticism from others, to fly your freak flag without worry of what others will think, to make mistakes and still rise up strong after them. Watching you grow, change, and evolve into the best "you", the real you, gives me the strength to keep searching for the real me.
You give me the courage to shine my light as bright as I can and to let go of the need to dim it when others feel threatened by its brilliance.
I have the luxury of not only following my heart and making a living at it, but I also get to be inspired and motivated by super cool people every time I step on my mat or open the doors to the studio. How can you not be influenced by watching others grow, change and create forward + positive motion?
Some days I am bursting with pride like a mama hen as I watch my chicks grow and evolve into their true and happiest selves.
Life is truly good.
