Why not go out on a limb?

Isn’t that where the fruit is?  ~Frank Scully

I read this over at Re:Focus:

 Just as there is much more of an incentive to lose a few pounds than to stay the same weight, just as there is much more of an incentive to run your next race faster than to  run it at the same pace, the incentive to improve is always more powerful than the false incentive to stay in one place, even if it’s the best. (emphasis added)

 

In my life at this time, I have been wading into this jewellery business for the past two, two and a half years.  Really just dipping my toes in to see how the water is, while at the same time gripping on to my yoga teaching lifeline. Since I am a bit of a rolling stone, I have been uncharacteristically a bit afraid to take the next steps, to leap, to forge ahead.   

Life is full of momentum and opportunity, should we only choose to seize it.  It is a step by step adventure, a string of NOW, this moment, that we, each of us, continue to create.

And so, I opened my hands and let go of my yoga teaching. 

I had to. 

Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself. ~ Alan Alda

  1. Wow… So you’re no longer teaching?? Are you going to try to make a go of your doing your jewelry business full-time??

    Either way…change is good. Change IS momentum, progress, steps into the future. Bravo for embracing it all!

    • Not teaching for now…it was a hard decision, but i needed to focus my energy to see if I can do the jewellery full time. It’s fun and so far, so good. We’ll see what happens.
