We all take little leaps every day. From the moment we wake, we are in the process of deciding how we are going to exist in each and every moment…consciously or unconsciously. Some days, our leaps will be bigger than others and will require strength, courage and will. Other times, the leaps are so minute that we may not notice they are happening at all.
Tomorrow, my big leap will be boarding a series of flights that will take me from my home to halfway around the world. I am leaping to a new destination so I can learn, absorb, meditate, embrace, adventure and push myself beyond my comfort zone. I am leaping to experience something new and determine a new path. I am leaping to celebrate all that has led up to this point and to appreciate in full the present moment.
Leaps are not done alone. For me, this leap to becoming a yoga instructor has included family, friends, teachers, mentors and a yoga community. It has meant listening and learning and allowing myself to feel and know the love that comes from those I surround myself with. I am very lucky to have such an amazing network of people in my life.
What leap(s) will you take today? Will they be big or small? Will you know when they are happening?
