We cannot deny the Winter because we long for the Spring, just as we cannot deny our current state because we long for the next. If we do – if we forget to pause and appreciate this season of our lives – we may miss what is necessary for us to appear with abundance when it’s time.
I’ve learned over the years that it’s vital I find this space in order to be fully present in what I’m doing. If I dive straight into anything without first taking the time to ground, I can easily feel overwhelmed and uncomfortable. It’s like in yoga, if we were to drop straight into a pigeon pose the moment we land on the mat, it probably wouldn’t feel too good. You may even hurt yourself. But by the end of the class, when the body is warm and open, the pose becomes natural and easy to soften into it. So why not bring that same awareness into all aspects of our lives?
