Well, here we are – at the beginning of another new year. Many of us, myself included, are more than ready to put 2020 in the rearview mirror. For good reason, we’re ready for a better future. BUT. We can’t forget what we learned about ourselves and each other. We have a lot of work to do before we can expect things to get better and I know we can do it. That’s the big picture.
From my little corner of the world, here are a few things I am committing to in 2021:
- Taking better care of myself. It’s not about weight. It’s not about looks. It’s about trying to avoid the big three illnesses that are prevalent in my family: heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. To pretend yogis don’t sometimes struggle with their physical well being is unrealistic. I’m owning my struggle and committing to work on it.
- Balancing my throat chakra. That may sound a bit “woo” to some of you, but balancing your throat chakra has to do with (among other things) speaking and hearing truth. I have a passion for politics and current events and a degree in political science. Some people know about that and some don’t. I have struggled with communicating without getting overly emotionally invested. Our system is imperfect, but deserves to be fixed. I want to help rebuild the best in our society while also addressing the worst in a productive way.
- Developing a special manifestation and intention course. I’m going to be a little intentionally vague here and just say I’m working on a course to share with you all that will incorporate asana, pranayam, meditation, and creative exercises with intention setting and the natural rhythms of the world. I will probably ask for volunteers in the near future to help me flesh out this idea. Stay tuned.
Thank you all for your support. Here’s to a better 2021!
