I'm back from New Zealand and I am ready to get my yoga on!

A 3 week vacation can be a really intense thing, even if it doesn't sound like it at first. When my husband and I were deciding to take our honeymoon we knew once we got to New Zealand we would want as much time as possible. What we didn't plan on was the unexpected clarity that comes with 3 weeks of slowing down to really get in touch with your heart and mind. 

We saw many amazing things on our adventures. The first part of our journey was a 4 day backpacking trip through the Milford track. What I was envisioning to be just a beautiful walk in the woods was so much harder than that. It really tested my endurance of physical and mental stamina. For every challenge we faced, there was an equal bit of beauty. Very similar to how life is sometimes. I honestly thought I wasn't going to make it by the middle of day 3 but i dug real deep and found something I didn't know was there. My reward was a visit to Sutherland Falls. I've never seen anything so beautiful in my life. Proving the point that doing all the hard work usually means there is a reward on it's way, even if you can't see it or have no idea what it looks like.

Most of our trip was spent driving around the island I had a lot of time to reflect on things in my life and where I am with following my dreams. What I continuously came back to was that I want to teach. I don't know what form that will finalize into, but I know that ultimately I would like to teach full time. So I am writing this here and putting it out into the universe, I am ready. Let's do this. The best way to manifest what we really want is to leap without knowing what will catch us.

There so much more to say and in time I think the lessons will pop back up but I really just wanted to say I am ready. I ready for the yoga, the friendships, the dreaming big. Bring it on. 

Much love.
