Im grateful to be learning the pole. It is like an analogy for life for me. It hurts so dam much and pushes me out of my comfort zone and reminds me of my why. Every time I avoid my practice (the hard stuff) it gets more overwhelming and every-time I show up and do the work, it shows me new strengths I never thought possible. Then out of all the pain suddenly comes magic and a reminder it’s all about the big picture, anything’s possible if you believe.
How do we make the most of who we are with what we have? In a world full of beauty, there is no end to adventure and magnificent. However, the challenge is to open our eyes and if our eyes don’t see it, our hearts so we can see it. In yoga, pole, raising a child, working or simply being in whatever, like in life. We must be open to seeing the beauty in any moment or situation. This year has been a great teacher, to remind me what truly matters, to remind me that it is never what happens on the outside. Its always what’s happening on the inside. When pain, misery, or anger happen, it is time to look within you, not around you. The planet is spinning on time: not a small event. All the galaxies are managing fine; the whole cosmos is doing great. But we have one challenging thought spinning out of control in our head, and it is a bad day! The problem is we are living in a psychological space that bears no connection with reality. And we are insecure, because it can collapse at any moment. It’s time to remember every moment there are a million miracles swirling around us: a flower blossoming through the concrete, a baby being born, a bee humming, a snowflake floating, a shooting star being wished upon in the crisp night air, someone laughing or falling in love. There is magic everywhere. If we learn how to live it, life is nothing short of a moment by moment miracle.
