elementary school

So I don't know if you've noticed but I haven't written a lot this week. There are several reasons for this. First? Complete and total exhaustion. I had no idea what yoga teacher training would take out of me - physically, emotionally, and mentally. I've spent my evenings with yoga, SVU, and snuggling with my honey on the couch. Since I've been back home I've wondered about how to present to y'all what I am learning and the impact on all of me.


I'm in that space of feeling like the more I learn, the more aware I am of what I don't know. I have all of the stuff just swimming blissfully around in my head but I don't feel articulate enough -yet- to share this with you.

I feel like I'm just on page 1 and I see the opportunity and the potential of everything ahead of me. I don't want to come off like I think I know everything already, but it is all I want to talk about.

Maybe this a better analogy. I feel like I'm back in elementary school. And everything just feels amazing and fascinating and vast. The world feels huge and waiting to be understood. I feel like I'm learning how to write physically. And I want to say things like, "Holy shit friends! I just made a cursive r! And tomorrow I'm gonna learn how to make a cursive s!"


I realize that where I am is the beginning of this massive adventure. But I still want to share it with you in a way that I won't look back in a year and feel feel like a big goober.

So I will share my process with you. I have a list of things to write about, but I'm still figuring out how to make them even remotely coherent. I'm working on it.

Today I want to share with you a few things would've totally rocked my world in the last few days. Places that I have found words that I don't have to give yet.

The first is a article from poweryoga.com on what yoga is and what yoga means. This speaks so openly and eloquently on how my thoughts on health and fitness are evolving. You will see writing from me around this topic, but I'm not sure how to write it without potentially being viewed as judgmental toward a community I thrived in. He speaks truth.

This podcast with Jess Lively and Kate Arends? Blew my mind. I love the talk about authenticity and minimalism and approaching both from a spiritual and true gut level perspective.

So that's what I've got today friends. Expect more. Expect me to flail and some points. Expect me to maybe get a little radical. But expect me to be me.

I am in elementary school. And I love it.
