Lesson Learned. What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?
~ December 17 prompt
I am a gypsy warrior queen – no point in denying it any longer really!
Vulnerability and honesty are my greatest strengths
It’s good to have a plan, something to make me smile when life temporarily resembles a huge stinky dung pile
If I want to feel loved, I have to start with loving who I am and where I’m at
No matter how honest I think I am with myself it’s still possible to hold on to dishonesty on some level, out of fear
(I’ve seen this both in my yoga practice and my day-to-day life)
My purpose in this life is to be of service in as many ways as I can
Whenever I feel frustrated or as though life is unfair, I just need to remember my service calling to put things in perspective
Teaching causes great joy for me
If I’m in a particularly good mood, strange dogs come up and say hello A LOT
The breath is mightier than the sword
I am completely and utterly obsessed with yoga
Avoidance is futile
There are certain things I am just not in charge of
We absolutely never know what’s on someone else’s mind, so we should just stop assuming (that thing about making an ass out of you and me)
If I think I’ve learned all I possibly have to learn about myself, I’m probably mistaken
I’m not that kind of girl, but I am many other kinds…
I AM a gypsy warrior queen and my kingdom is made of love, hugs, laughter, hard-won wisdom and open-hearted bliss
Nobody can say 2010 was void of lessons – and not many can convey them as beautifully as you. It is a treat to share your journey. Hello from a fellow reverb10er, who has greatly enjoyed reading your words.
Hi Roxanne, thanks for dropping by. I love your blog and what you’re doing with your life!! 🙂
“I AM a gypsy warrior queen and my kingdom is made of love, hugs, laughter, hard-won wisdom and open-hearted bliss”
Now that is a great creed. Beautiful.
Thanks Louise! The right words, when they come along… they are always good, right?
Great list for this equinox/full moon/eclipse. The darkness is receding… Light is on the way. For all of us.
Thanks for your courage and for sharing your process.
I love what you wrote on “Patience” in an earlier post and am sharing that with a therapeutic yoga student who if feeling so frustrated with his pain.
Thank you, Svasti.
Hi Michelle, thanks for popping over to say hello. Here in the southern hemisphere, it’s the opposite equinox but whatever symbolism works for us. I’m so very glad if something I wrote has helped one of your students. Give him a hug from me!
