Do you ever think about that? I often reflect on how I used to show up. I was quiet, anxious and fearful. I wanted to show up as someone strong, competent and able to share my message. I knew the person I wanted to be. And I knew that's not the person I was being.
Now I'm very aware of how I show up for people. I want to be support for my husband. I want to be a guide for my students. I want to be an eager student for my teachers. And I want to be a messenger and voice for anxiety for the world and share my experiences and healing journey with as many people as I can!
We all have people we want to show up for. And we have desires of how we want to show up for ourselves. Think about the energy you want to share with the people around you. Don't let your fear push you up against a wall.
The next time you finish your practice, curl up into that fetal position and think about who you want to be and how you can be that for the world. We are so incredibly lucky to get that 'do-over' and fresh start everytime we step off the mat. Let's not waste this beautiful opportunity to shine bright!
