I would like to say thank you again to all of my students for your support as I recently took an unscheduled week off.
The longer we live, the more we learn, right?
With time, I have learned a lot about myself and knowing when to put on the brakes and stop whatever it is that I am doing- even if it is teaching my love and passion, and which means tuning in to what my body and emotions are screaming out for (even if it’s not always the most comfortable experience).
It comes down to allowance of self, of acceptance of self and all that makes us who we are…
Allowing whatever feelings that arise within to ‘just be’ that, allowing ourselves to sit with the feelings or emotions and let them be what they are.
At times in my life situations arise that may be considered bad, or good, or sad, and often ignoring these is an easy to trap to fall into to- continuing on with the busy lives that keep us always moving forward.
Somethimes however the fastest and most healing way to move forward from these curveballs is to move through the emotion rather than to push it to the side, only to want to be heard louder and more insistent than before.
Letting it out, in what ever way this looks like is key- having a cry, going for a walk, writing a letter, doing yoga, anything that creates enough space for those emotions to be heard, allowed, and then encouraged to move on through.
For me, I have found huge growth in this area of embracing and allowing the emotions to roll through rather than trying to control them. Always remembering that this too shall pass.
Moving in our moments, being in the now, and taking time out when we need it can turn rolling with those punches into a beautiful dance with life.
