Friday, I posted this to my Instagram after discovering this quote in my Feedly:
Seriously – I bow to Danielle Laporte‘s writing and fire towards going after life.
On Saturday, while reading in prep for a workshop with Rod Stryker, I found myself drawn to this quote in his book, The Four Desires:
And on Sunday, my teacher Ylonda used one of my favorite quotes to open and close her morning class:
The same quote I used during my very first class a year ago this month.
Universe, seriously: it’s nice of you to throw all this similarly themed inspiration at me in one weekend’s time. Now that you’ve pointed me in the right direction, how about a big carrot dangling in front of me for the jump to get me going? Because I’m still not 100% sure what I’m doing here. I feel like I just heard the bling on my cell phone to alert me to a text message, but when I went to read it, the message was blank.
I bet your next reaction is “Alicia! You get to write your own message! What’s life calling you to do?” You don’t know how many times 1) asked myself that question, and when I think I have an answer, 2) debate if I have the guts to make it happen. And it’s not just in the obvious areas of my life: it’s professionally, emotionally, in relationships, in dog ownership, in how I eat, in how I exercise… <end the over-thinking brain cycle now>
See, this is what plenty of twisting in the yoga studio (build those tapas via that Manipura chakra!) and too much weekend downtime does to my brain… and really sore body. Sigh. and ouch.
I feel like I discovered a message in a bottle – but I can’t get the paper out. So why am I so afraid to smash the hell out of that vessel? Maybe it would be better is someone hit me over the head with it!
