You would think I would be smart to back up my mailing list. But yeah. No. So if you were getting the emails from me before. I might have lost your email. Mailchimp doesn't seem to want to work with me anymore so I will focus on the blog instead. You can sign up for my mailing list and I will now save a back up of it. Sorry for my mistake.
Don't you feel sometimes like your life is a big movie? And you cannot imagine where things are coming from? I used to think this was only me. But now when I listen to people, really listen, I just go wonder, who ever thinks of these stuff happening in real life. Sometimes we feel like other people are exaggerating about their stories but most of the time they are also editing in their head. But it's still pretty wonderful and crazy at the same time. And yet we go through this life, we have these crazy adventures and we still doubt our capabilities? Do you remember all you went through to get here? Look at how strong you are. Beautiful. That is what you are.
I would also like to use this chance to thank the people who have been continuing to support me, through donations, through your presence, through your sweet messages. These times are hard for everyone. And though I may seem as though as I am always ready to practice, the reality is far from these. I have a lot of hesitations with going to the mat. But mostly it's expectations on myself. I know I am really hard on myself and I put high expectations. I know this is also mental conditioning. But doesn't make dealing with it easier. Or maybe it does. The acknowledgement that it is there. I was in one of Peter Sanson's talk and what struck me is what he said, 'One good breath should do it.' We go through the movements of our Ashtanga practice (or maybe any other practice, running, long boarding, singing, walking, playing an instrument., climbing.. the list goes on). One good breath. It means a lot to be able to breathe through these adversities in life. So we keep breathing. One breath, then maybe another one. And before we know it the movie is almost over. Or does it really end? The questions of life are endless.
