Revelations

Often I like to drive to work in silence, I normally get the urge to do so when I am feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Normally I listen to music, podcast, motivational speeches, etc but some days usually when I  am feeling out of balance I realize I just need silence. Time to observe my busy thoughts, time to be present! Whenever I do these silent commutes I always have some type of revelation or just a feeling of ease and calm. Today, I was blessed to have a few revelations as well as ease and calmness 🙏

I've mentioned before that I started a home based business. I am heading into my 5th month with the company. It has definitely been a challenging few months, not because my company isn't amazing.... This morning I realized all of my frustrations with my business are of my own doing. I have been so distracted and trying to create this person that I am not, I have been making excuse after excuse and just making things way more complicated than they need to be. With all that said, July awaits and it's a new start for me and my business.

Besides my home based business, I have also been building my Holistic Nursing Business.  I have been frustrated, distracted and making things so complicated with this business too! This morning I realized, I need to focus on the things I have in place with my business and stop trying to add more things on before I see my first projects thru! So my plan is to focus on my personal yoga practice, my stress mannagement class for my coworkers, and just roll with whatever other oppurtunites pop up along the way ☺️

Grad school also resurfaced. I originally said I would go back in fall 2015, but because of all the chaos I mentioned above I have been toying with the idea of not going back. Well this morning, I decided I have to revisit my original intentions for graduate school and again complete what I have in progress!

Whew! Feels good to get all of that out! Now I just need to get disciplined and really get stuff done 😁

Excuse the dirty windshield, but I just had to capture how beautiful the sky looked this morning. Another benefit of a silent commute..

This past weekend I took my last 2 classes for my yoga teacher certification! I still can't believe  the program is over, its been a long at times trying journey. I can remember several weekends where I just wanted to quit, there were times that I was tired, missed my kids, missed events, missed time with my husband, missed time just spending the weekend relaxing. In fact there was one weekend where, I was so overwhelmed and exhausted that while trying to drive to training, tears were just running down my face and I turned around and skipped class. Through out all of this, my burning desire to achieve my goals and really bring the change I want to see in our world kept me going. This training was the first thing I ever completed that wasn't "required" or done to " get a job, promotion, etc" This was purely something elective that I wanted to do for myself and my future.

I haven't quite developed exactly what I will do now that I am done, but I would love to share a few things that are going on.

-I have been teaching a chair yoga class for my coworkers for a few weeks now

-I have received a few inquires for private yoga classes

-I even had one of our surgeons ask me to attend one of the meetings for which he is the chair of, to present Yoga and my mission for helping health care workers. We were having a casual conversation when he asked me about my yoga class, I then shared my mission and he then invited me! He wants to see if we can get buy in from some other departments in the hospital :)

- I interviewed at a studio last month to teach. I don't know why I did this , because I've said time and time again that I didn't want to teach at a studio. After the interview, the owner basically said she hired me and asked for my schedule via email. I sent it a few days later, and have yet to hear from her.   This wasn't a surprise to me at all,  I am meant to do more and her lack of response was a sign from the universe that I need to stay focused on what I am doing and my mission.


All in all, I realize we don't always have to have a plan. What's important is to know what you want, and take the steps necessary to get it done, all the while trusting that you are on the right path and being led by a force greater than you!

Much Love and Light to you all!
