Our whole reason for being here is to serve the yoga community, and we would not be doing a very good job if we did not listen to awesome people like you.
We’re All Turned Inside Out
It’s time that we adjusted our perspective.
Yesterday I was writing a blog post for my other website GypsyWonders and I started thinking about our perspective. We were prepping for backpacking and I saw a post discussing the different ways to “look cute” in the woods. That got me thinking – well, isn’t that backwards? Before you go to one of the most beautiful places that you’ve ever been, you’re thinking about what you’re going to look like? We’ve got a problem that the eight limbs of Ashtanga has a cure for – a miss-allocation of our perspective. Let me elaborate a bit…
But I had to take a step back to find out just how great life can be.
After making the difficult decision to go on a break from blogging and focus on myself for a bit (I couldn’t help feeling selfish, but knew that I was risking my health and happiness, loosing focus on just how blessed I am, by spreading myself too thin), incredible things happened. I was able to find a new, much more positive day job working with great people. I found love. No really, I found a man who loves me, who puts me first, who shares the same passions and is positive and caring. Ladies, they are out there – this is a different post for a different day though.
