Years from now I want to look back at my life with my espresso next to me and my bright pink orthopedic grandma shoes and think “what a wild, beautiful ride”. I want to reminisce on the boundaries I pushed both mentally and physically.
I have no time for excuses and limitations, in fact when I sense myself facing something sheepishly, I lean in a little more.
Of course, it has taken me years to get to a place where I welcome fear, but I have found that the things that I tend to fear are the very things that give me the most growth and push me to the next level.
I am talking about…
Writing a book
Dating the guy
Doing that workout
Moving to the state that felt like home
Confronting a friend
Being authentic, without apologie
Enrolling yourself in the class you have debated about for YEARS
I think you get the drift. I hope what you’re getting from this is the cheerleader from the side lines saying, like the brand Nike, “Just do it”.
I signed up for Yoga teacher training and boom just like that, after 5 years of fear, excuses, and just plain angst its happening in one week.
Onward and upward C.
