Monday Morning Rambles: Big News & The Power of Words...

Good morning my loves! (big news is below)

Last week Mokshapriya (my teacher) asked me to come in to have a little chat about certain things. One on one time with her is special to me but to say that I wasn't nervous, is a lie ha.

I arrived to the Ashram and after a sweet embrace, it was down to business. Mokshapriya pulled up my website and pointed to my tag line "A NYC girl trying to find her Zen" and grunted "What is this? Why are trying to find your zen...why haven't you put into action what I have taught you?"

She explained, that me putting the word "trying" sets it up that I will never achieve my zen because I am putting this word into the Universe. She then proceeded to look at my post from last week in which I spoke about the all or nothing mentality and how "Lately I have been struggling with this way of thinking...".  She reminded me that using a powerful word such as "struggling" only invites more struggle into various aspects of my life. 

She is absolutely right (duh Mariette) and with that my tagline is now "A NYC Girl Enjoying Her Zen" which is a play on words since my kitty is named Zen ha.

That was just the beginning of our talk...

When we were approaching our final weeks of our 200 hours, a couple of my classmates asked Mokshapriya if she would consider doing a 500 hours program. Initially we were supposed to be her last class and she was going to retire from Yoga teacher teaching. After some convincing and sad puppy dog faces; she conceded. I wanted to participate but felt that right now, it perhaps would not occur. 

Last week we discussed my concerns & the reasons why I thought I wouldn't be able to participate. After some tears and smiles...I am ecstatic to say that starting next week, my 500 Yoga Teacher Training journey will begin. My sister is so sweet and already gifted me the additional text book that I will need for my classes!

This will be an intense and beautiful life changing year which scares and excites me at the same time...such is life.
