Last summer I wrote a post about saying yes and seeing what happenes. The thing is, I thought I knew what was going to happen. Maybe not the exact path, but pretty much the direction. I was completely wrong. Being open takes us on surprising journeys.
This is not what I expected…
but I am incredibly excited, as well as anxious, to begin the journey of yoga teacher training. Will I teach when I am done? I can’t see that far in the future. I hope to but I won’t predict what is in store at the end of the year. Right now I am looking forward to deepening my yoga practice and learning more about the philosophy as well as anatomy.
I have also been learning about plant based nutrition and am beginning a continuing education course on functional nutrition. I need to find some time to sit down and write about both and what I am learning. At the beginning of January I decided to try to eat a vegan diet. I have done fairly well – probably 90% and only really had a problem when I was traveling home from Vancouver. I feel better and plan to continue on this path.
The gifts that have been revealed to me over the past several months have been a combination of surprise and reaffirmation of passion. I have redefined what I think of as ministry and have come to see that there are many paths and ways to minister. I am in a very good place for now and feel quite blessed to be pursuing what I love.
