The Life Is Good Chapter

So, changes are a-brewing on the home front. And of course, being a morning-thinker, I woke up  with questions lingering overhead: 1) have I done enough to share the yogic-bliss this week and 2) I am so starting a new job Monday – does this mean I’m giving up o my calling?

I sat there for a few minutes in silence, all snuggled up with my baby boy. Sigh. Life is good.  It’s been said by some that it’s better to forget the questions for now. Live everything. And one day, you will live your way into the answers.

But, being me… I have to answer the two self-imposed questions! I’ll keep it brief; I won’t assume to know the full answers. Yet. First, YES. I have done enough to share the joy this week. Why do we doubt ourselves? I won’t waste my time. Thought in, thought out. I got to see beautiful families on the mat, off the mat, and I shared amazing moments with my chip-counting, blueberry-gobbling, giggly monkey baby! My sweet little sister also spent her week with us, and we really couldn’t have asked for more.

And onto question number two. Umm, NO. I’m not giving up anything! Instead, I am creating stability for my family and extending my love into an organization dedicated to providing for mothers and babies. So, in all reality, I’ve found a role where I can find constant inspiration for my work on (and off) the mat.

Yes, life is good. And I finally feel as though I am living everything again.

Here’s to another chapter. Another place and space to grow into – with my amazing little family and my growing business. Life is good.

Breathe. Bend. Be.
