Hello lovely readers, I am so sorry I was unable to share my last two blogging challenge posts on the days they should have gone up. I have had a couple of super busy days but in an amazing way. I have been pouring my heart and soul into teaching yoga and sharing my light with you hence why the blog took a little bit of a back seat. But not to worry I am back with post number six!
Ever heard of the phrase 'If you do a job that you love you will never work a day in your life'? I am sure you have. That's the dream right? So today I wanted to share with you a part of my life story about how I found my way and made the decision to live a life that I love.
Last year probably around this time I was working my office job day to day. A bit of an average office job which paid the bills, the people in the office were lovely (on the most part) and my job was secure. I had been in the job for around 6 years and not much had changed, but I figured, that's just life right? It was also around this time Matt said to me one day 'well you could be a yoga teacher', I of course being me just brushed that remark off. I could never do anything like that could I? As you will know I am a huge Gabby Bernstein fan and it was when I picked up 'Add more ~Ing in your life' that I really started to see a shift in my perspective. Through reading this book and making small changes in my own life I shifted my perspective from negative thought patterns of 'oh I'm not good enough' & 'I could never do that' to positivity and happiness. By being happy with where you are you create space and openness for something new. When January of this year rolled around I made a promise to myself that I could and I would make my dreams happen. Of course my ego stepped in at times making me second guess myself. I had hiccups along the way, but how I dealt with them was different. I grew in confidence, I could see my light shining and I could see that I was beginning to inspire others in their own path. Teaching yoga was what I was born to do.
What came after my teaching training was probably the most nerve racking for me. I had to put myself out there and teach! That first class was a room full of 30 people, I was excited but so so nervous and that came through my voice. I was shaky and sweating from nerves. However I knew that if I really wanted to teach yoga and connect to people I had to make myself vulnerable like that. So with a determination I never knew I had I taught that class and each one that followed has got easier. I am slowly finding my voice and my feet. Three months down the line I am so happy that I made that jump....
'What if I fall? Oh, but my darling... what if you fly?'
Take that leap. whatever it is, no matter how big or small, have faith in yourself and FLY!
