I am planning on sneaking up to my roof and do some yoga while the eclipse is happening...it should be magical.
This Saturday I celebrated my friend Angie's birthday. Angie and I met a little over a year ago when she was hired to work at my gym. I am very apprehensive when it comes to new people and I didn't know if I would like her. Thankfully I did and we are still good friends even though she moved on to another establishment.
Thanks to facebook memories, I saw that 4 years ago today, I was hanging out with my friend Amber and the wheels started to spin in regards to friendships.
In yoga we have the Yamas and one of the yamas is Aparigraha which means non-possessiveness (non attachment). It hit me that this goes for friendships as well. Amber recently moved to Colorado (and my bff moved to Texas) and of course I was heart broken but thinking about it now; it made room for me to cultivate new friendships. Does this mean that my friendships with them is over? Not at all but now I have space in my life to make memories with new people.
I believe that individuals are meant to be in your life for a lifetime or perhaps just a chapter and that's okay. Don't hold resentment if a friendship has taken a turn for the worse and you are no longer close. That just means that they served their purpose and now it is time to move on. Appreciate what you learned from this experience and carry it with you.
Always surround yourself with those that bring out the best in you....
In the video below, I also discuss eating out and having zero guilt.
