All too often, we become things we don’t want to be.
Unwittingly, to some extent, we are drug into a job, a living situation, a path, that causes us to look around, bewildered, and ask: how the hell did I get here?
And while there’s power in reshaping your story – taking control – it’s often the acceptance of the odd, the crazy and the unexpected that makes a real difference in our lives.
As one of my favorite yoga teachers says – ‘it is a letting go.’
A letting go of what is so far beyond control, and an embrace of our true power.
Revolutionary, almost, to not expect everything from yourself, but ‘do what you can, where you are, with what you have.’
This freedom let’s us shape our lives slowly, gently, in ways that can actually be sustained. Building love, for ourselves or others, is not a one-off, quick fix deal.
Large or small days all go toward finding the understanding and acceptance of our lives. Letting joy in, finding new, amazing ways of being.
Even if we’re still llamas.
