Passion

This month's theme is not about "finding your passion," "being in the zone," finding or rekindling love or romance, or other thoughts that typically come to mind when discussing passion. It's actually about power. About control. Please hear me out…

When I practice or teach yoga, there's this sense of being in control over a small space, a microcosm of energy―something I don't always feel out of the studio. When I connect with my students or with a challenging pose or transition in my own practice, there's this powerful feeling of "I've got this."  I believe it's what helps drive my passion for my vocation.

Don't get me wrong, there are SO many times when I'm practicing or teaching that I don't feel as if "I've got this." But those moments when I do…

Maybe this does come back to finding your passion, to being in the zone or finding/rekindling love or romance…

In which moments do you feel particularly in control of your life? How can you apply those moments to times when you don't feel as much in control? Might you be willing to become still for a few moments and listen to what comes up? I’d love to hear your thoughts
