Family Is...

May 24, 2017

Sometimes there are too many words to say, to describe how I feel about my family…

And sometimes I don't want to put words to the people that I love, in fear that it will package them into a box that just doesn't fit...


So here is my experience right at this moment...


Time is moving as fast as a freight train towards it's destination, and even though I am aware of time being whatever we want it to be. Fast, slow, immobile... As I sit around the breakfast table with my yoga family filled with laughter, big smiles and a sharing space from deep inside my heart, I took a minute to appreciate this very moment in time, and watch two of my people walk away from the table. 

As I watched there backs walk gently into the distance and descend the stairs, my eyes welled with tears of gratitude, as my mind flicks through it's process of trying to comprehend just how lucky I feel being blessed with these amazing humans that fill my soul with peace.

How ever did I get here, to this exact point?

I sit in complete amazement of my life's journey through the years that have past...


I am bewildered by this world I have created for myself. 18 years have past since my first yoga class, and over these years my soul has been silently collecting its family along the way, and now here I am. Teaching and eating breakfast with two people in this lifetime that have pulled me, from depths of devastation I could not comprehend ever existed until I was there...


To my right my teacher, mentor, and friend who has shown me that it's ok to be exactly who I am, at any point in time, to except the changes that the journey of life brings, reminded me to have faith, and above all this amazing woman gave me courage to keep treading the path of teaching when others had tried to turn it into rubble.


And sitting across from me a friend with light in his being, who shares his story with all he meets in hope to sew back up his little pink heart from the devastating earthquake that shook his world to pieces years ago. He shows me what it's like to be as open to everyone you meet no matter what the past has written in your story book over time...


These two human beings make up a solid part of my yoga family and I will be eternally grateful for everything they have been thus far, and will continue to be in the future. But what I know is there are no words to describe exactly what these people mean to me other then the word family...


And for me there is no greater word. Because when it comes to family, we are eternally bound by unconditional love…
