Lately I have been waiting to post until I had an epic workout to blog about. Unfortunately, if I keep waiting it will be awhile. It’s not that I have not been working out, I have just misplaced the inspiration to write about the sweating. Instead, I’d like to share with you something incredibly exciting and better than my monotonous runs.
My dear friend, favorite yogi and a woman with a heart so big that I think it could take over the world, Shannon Von Burns, has given me the gift of attending her Yoga Teacher Training on a scholarship. I asked her why the heck she chose me for such an amazing gift. Her response was, “I believe in you. Your commitment to 365 days of working out earned you this honor!”
I am blown away and completely humbled. The generosity and confidence that she has shown in me has catapulted my own beliefs and capabilities about myself. The next eight months of the training process is going to challenge me in ways that I never thought possible and test my physical limits in ways that the last 365 days have only dreamt of doing. I will share this journey with you the same way that I shared the last year.
Until then, I leave you with a challenge. How can you continue to test your physical limits every year? My hunch is that if you’re capable of doing so, then you’ll learn more spiritually, emotionally and physically than you ever bargained for. It’s a gift that you will be able to give yourself, time after time. If it’s something that you’re interested in, find a way to do it and share it with the world. Trust me, they will be grateful.
