Good morning!! I'm a little behind schedule this morning but I want to share the affirmation and attitude that I will be practicing on this hot summer day in NYC:
I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THAT IS IN MY LIFE TODAY.
I woke up realizing that I have so much abundance in my life. This comes after a few days without said awareness. I don't know why it can be so easy to forget how good I have it but I do sometimes. I think it has something to do with my taking things for granted or having such high standards/expectations that I can feel I'm falling short against what I am striving to accomplish. From a state of ingratitude, everybody else seems like they have what I want and "compare and despair" syndrome can take over, which we all know is not fun.
I am grateful to be back to feeling grateful. It's like returning to 98.6 after a fever. Job, roof over head, great friends, family, goals, dreams, beautiful summer weather in a city that has everything I want and need if I take the time to find it -- yeah, it really is all good.
On another note, I may be taking a break from teaching intenSati. I have a possible stress fracture in my tibia (waiting for MRI results from yesterday) and it's been recommended by another top sports ortho (I'm on my third opinion now and they all agree) that I have ligament reconstruction on an ankle that's been injured for a while. It's been very challenging to face the facts of this situation but I realize that I have to deal with it straight on and do what's best for me. No whining or drama, right? Just go for acceptance and maturity and strength.
I love teaching and am not sure yet what the best and wisest course of action but I will certainly keep you posted. I will be teaching in the park on Saturday but doing less movement and more coaching and verbal cueing. It will still be an awesome class, I promise. I will not be subbing for Erika on Sunday as planned but Darbi will be and she has guest passes if you want to attend!
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great rest of the day. If you're in NY and free tonight, I am singing at Googie's lounge (154 Ludlow above the Living Room) and the show is going to be an incredible mix of talented singer/songwriters. So much fun and I hope to see you there!!
Closing thought: I have so much to be grateful for in my life today. I may not have everything I want but I certainly have all I need.
With xo and GRATITUDE,
