I now see White-Picket-Fence Syndrome as an epidemic. I witness and admire men and women every day in yoga classes as they slowly uncover their true selves while on their mat, layer by layer, one pose and one breath at a time. I observe as they breathe into and connect with their physical bodies in a way that always fosters truth and inspires them to bridge the gap between the life they’re living and the one they crave.
I finally stopped the brutal cycle of denial and defensiveness that kept me small and miserable, doing work I hated, being in relationships that sucked the life out of me, and buying things I couldn’t afford, just to name a few. I have created a life in which I have slowed down, downsized, and simplified.
After jumping from one mind-numbing corporate job to the next, I now find that my greatest passion is teaching yoga and coaching other women so they can feel more alive, free, and aligned with their truth.
I never dreamed I would move across the country and create my own business doing work I love, on my own terms. I am more courageous and bolder than I ever imagined. I stopped trying to control every aspect of life and more importantly, I stopped caring what other people thought of my every move.
I’ve learned that each time I unearth a new truth or step even slightly out of my place of comfort, a wave of unprecedented adventure comes my way. I’m willing to examine the areas of my life that make me feel more alive, authentic, and free as well as those that do not.
