The process of coming home within is not a once and done sort of thing. It is on-going and can be uncomfortable and frustrating. But as we continue to lean in, let in the light and remember who we really are, it is THEN that we find we are living wholeheartedly, from the inside out. Check out how I talk about my own process in this video: https://youtu.be/ddM1cEPGtZc . . . #wholehearted#cominghomewithin#selfawareness#betrue#letinthelight
vulnerability. living with your whole heart. growth. change. loss. love. . yesterday, @setareh.khatibi and i sat and processed the coming changes (aka we curled up together on the couch and cried for a solid half hour). i know that this feels like such a big loss because it is so beautiful. i am grateful to have a home full of friendships that are so hard to leave. it’s a testament to how deeply we love one another. it’s so hard because it’s so good. but still, it’s so hard. . as we were talking (aka blubbering), she said, “it’s like we came here with a seed planted in us, and these relationships have nourished us to grow. we’ve bloomed. but now we’ve outgrown the pot, and we need to be replanted in a bigger pot.” i have been feeling that exact sentiment, and i LOVE the metaphor she used. i replied, “we’re not heading to bigger pots, we’re going off to start our own gardens. to share the nourishment and help inspire even more growth around us.” . sometimes, whether it be a place, or a relationship, or a job, or a sport… any chapter in your life, really… you receive the lessons and love that you need, but you eventually arrive to a point where staying means stunting your growth. as hard and sad and scary as it is to let go, leaving is the pathway to expansion. i don’t want to leave this place, these amazing people, but i know that i have to go. it’s time. . but thankfully, not quite yet. i still have another month. and i have never in my life felt more present. more fully focused on the current moment. i am soaking up every minute here… every last drop. i look around in awe. i hug with longer squeezes. i savor each bite of the locally-grown farmers market magic. i laugh and i cry and i tell my friends over and over and over again: i love you, i love you, i love you. please don’t ever second guess how amazing you are. ❤️
“Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” - Prince. Who, and WHAT, helps you get thru it? The purifying sweat, and encouragement from the peers we meet at #bikramyoga#sugarland helps us “stay the course” day to day, week to week, month to month. The purpose of yoga isn’t to get better at #yoga. Instead, we work at clearing the dust from our Selves so that we can #endure when life ebbs and flows. The goal is to recall our strength. To have the #fortitude to live and love BIG. #begin

This beautiful couple have weathered many a storm together and have emerged all the more glorious.⠀ .⠀ From a blind first date in the house they now own, tiny feet scampering across the floor, alligator tears when love wasn’t easy and celebratory cheers for getting to where they are now.⠀ .⠀ They have first hand shown me what it means to extend true grace, when it is least deserve, everyday grace for the release of expectations and long suffering grace for the people in or lives we are called to walk with each and everyday.⠀ .⠀ They have shown me deep love and have adopted me whole heartedly into their family, graciously accepting my many faults, quirks, hopes and dreams.⠀ .⠀ For this is the family of Christ, to love as we have been loved, extend grace as it has been extended to us and walk alongside one another building each other up. 📸: @sarahjeanphotos
