I love this quote from this amazing woman!
Age not energy dictates the quality of my life.
After our 16-day trip through Europe, my daughter pointed out that I probably couldn’t have done this five or six years ago, which coincides perfectly with when I committed to a yoga practice.
Since then, my practice has helped me to heal from and come back stronger than ever after hurting my low back. It has given me strength in my body but also in my mind and spirit.
Before yoga, when I would be away from home, I’d often find myself having anxiety attacks in the middle of the night. I was worried about that on our trip. I had one, but barely. I think it was mostly due to sheer exhaustion by that point but I slept a solid 10 hours , took it easy the next day, kept up with my writing, meditation and yoga and was fine.
My energy comes from within.
It comes from living my yoga off the mat, practicing all eight limbs.
It comes from taking care of my body and listening to it.
It comes from stoking the light within me and using it to help others find their own light.
It comes from being true to myself.
It comes from, as Liz Gilbert says, embracing the glorious mess that I am.
