One year ago to the day, I had a crazy thought that thrilled me and scared me. I wrote it down so I would not forget:

"I want to become a yoga instructor. I want to open my own studio. I want to be able to someday do what i love all day to be able to support us."

Months later, actions were taken to put this seemingly far-fetched dream into motion. I did all the research and put in the time, energy and effort and I am now about about 6 weeks away from graduating from my 200 hour yoga teacher training.

It astounds me how much I have grown over the past year and I'm intrigued at what the future might bring. I know there is still much more work to be done to make this dream a reality. As with any journey, there are highs and lows. I'm putting into practice how to experience everything that comes up, both the good and the bad, rather than suppressing the bad. There are still some difficult emotions that I'm not ready to deal with yet but maybe someday. Despite all of that, I love every step of this journey that is setting my heart free. I've never been so sure of anything else in my life and it makes me feel ALIVE.
