Fix it

Sometimes, there’s nothing to fix.

Sometimes, there’s nothing to fix.

In our broken state, we are complete.

Sometimes, we don’t need to change anything.

We can be sad and be complete.

We can be happy and be complete.

We can be alone and be complete.

We can be home and be complete.

Sometimes through the madness and complexities of life,

there’s nothing to change.

Even though the light of unfairness can be seen at times.

Even though we can fall back on pain, all is complete.

All is stillness, all is wholeness, all is oneness.

Sometimes there’s nothing to fix.

Sink, rest into your body and experience.

Experience sensation, emotion, heartache, bliss, confusion,

anxiety, hate, joy and peace– experience it all! Why?

Because you’re alive. All that’s required of you now is to simply experience, and feel.

Sometimes there’s nothing to fix.

And there’s everything to experience.

There is absolutely nothing you need to change.

Future Career

Here I am!

I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to write about tonight, but I felt the desire to write. I feel the desire to be here for my little blog, giving it some attention. Today I’ve been thinking a lot about my career path and what that may look like for me in the future.

I had been thinking a lot about yoga therapy school the past 2 months or so. I really love the idea of becoming a yoga therapist, it’s a lovely idea in my mind. I can see myself being immersed in the world of yoga all day long, helping people choose the right poses for them, helping them also to learn how to process their emotions through yoga, and how to sort out all the thoughts in their mind.

I can see this peaceful career, but there’s also a fear there. A fear that things might not work out the way I want them to. A fear that no one would want to partake in what I have to offer. There’s a fear that no one will understand what yoga therapy is, and I won’t be taken seriously for it. Afraid I won’t have a successful business all on my own. Afraid I cannot reach the people I want to reach.

I am still very interested in yoga therapy, but I’m also looking at finishing up my social work degree. Perhaps doing that, and working in that field for a while and even introducing yoga into that career, bringing yoga therapy to people that way.

Whichever way it happens, I am committed to listening to myself through it all. I’m done choosing based on what I think other people’s opinions are. I’m ready to commit to myself fully and be there through it all. If I make a mistake, that’s ok. I’m willing to give it all to myself. I deserve it!

Moving with the Breath

I still see myself as a beginner at some things when it comes to my yoga practice.

I started to practice yoga a little differently than I usually do this week.

It’s been just over a year since I have completed my teacher training. During my regular personal yoga practice, I’ve discovered that my focus is on what poses I should do.

What pose comes after this one? What is my apex pose going to be? What poses am I going to do before Savasana? For this practice, I decided to move my focus from what pose I’m going to do, and instead I decided to focus on my breath. Continue reading “Moving with the Breath”

What’s Better than Happiness?

It’s something we want to last. Happiness is what we want for ourselves and others. It’s desirable. It feels good in our bodies. It looks good to our eyes, it eases our minds. Happiness is something strived for by pretty much everyone.

What about the times when happiness isn’t there?

Those times when you are wanting for happiness to┬ábe there, and it’s not.

It’s those times when things aren’t working out. It’s not there to provide that good feeling always.

Contentment is valuable to turn to when happiness is absent or present is something you can choose always. Contentment may be a part of happiness, and it’s the part of happiness that is strong and enduring. Being content, resting into yourself and relying on yourself brings a certain strength. Contentment isn’t about wanting to be filled up with positivity all the time.

It’s about learning to be with yourself when things get shaky, and they do for everyone at times. It’s about accepting what’s enough for yourself. It’s about letting yourself and others go through hard times, in order to learn and grow.

It’s about learning to be ok when things aren’t working out the way you had in mind.

It’s accepting others, no matter what they choose. It’s accepting that other people aren’t always happy when you are.

It’s that inner knowing that everything isn’t meant to be positive all the time.

It’s knowing that always wanting positivity isn’t always a positive thing.

Wanting happiness isn’t always a happy thing.

Worrying and stressing about other people being happy will not bring you happiness. It will not bring other people happiness. Worrying brings more worry. Stress brings more stress.

Acceptance invites in life. Being content invites in more possibilities

What’s better than being happy is letting others go through hard things. It’s letting yourself go through hard things. Experience it all– positive and negative. Allowing life to happen, and having enough respect for others and yourself to experience all that life has to offer you.

Trying to make things be positive isn’t allowing the true, real experiences to come through.

Life may not always be happy, but I appreciate all life has to offer me. I want to experience it all, because that’s what’s real. Hurt is real, love is real, pain is real.

I embrace experiencing it all!
