At the beginning of this month I was nervous. I was sending out announcements and spreading the word that I had passed the yoga studio on to someone new, and man that was nerve wracking. I was afraid I would lose the faith of our amazing students, clients, and business partners. I was afraid both my business and the new yoga business would take a hit. I was afraid of the judgement that would arise from my decision. I was ready to hold my breath and hide out.
I didn’t. It’s just not in my nature.
I am someone who moves very slowly towards big decisions, weighing all of the possibilities, all of the ways a thing could go and deciding what the best option is based on as many factors as possible. I take my time in making sure it feels like the right decision, I get feedback from people I know and trust, and then I wait for the appropriate moment when I can make changes as smoothly as possible. I have done this my entire life…it once took me two years to leave a boyfriend based on that process. I have progressed to much quicker decision and change making in my love life (thank goodness), but in other areas I am still at tortoise speed. The slowness of my decision making usually gives me ample time to really accept the changes I’m making, stand behind them, and move forward from there without questioning myself (too much anyways).
In this case I took those big deep breaths, made the changes, and charged forward into what needed to be done. And the greatest thing happened…you gave me the most amazing feedback. I was so honoured to have conversations and receive messages from some of you who not only congratulated me but also gave me feedback that they were inspired or encouraged or just happy with my honesty about the fact that running the yoga studio was not resonating with me. This stunned me. And it encouraged me! It let me not only breath deeply, but to let out a big sigh of relief.
(thank you for showing me love)
Of course there’s still some negativity here and there, some confusion, and the hard work and instability of making the actual change; but it is seriously overshadowed by the encouragement you offered. By the support I’ve received from so many angles. By the love I’m feeling from you!
I am slowly settling into my adjusted role, focusing more on giving massages, teaching more awesome yoga classes, and finding more ways to support our Wild Woods Wellness staff and have us all thrive in good health and abundance. I want you to know that I am so grateful for your support and that I couldn’t do it without you.
So Thank You!
Much love to you all,
