Last week I did something CRAY CRAY. (Well, at least for me.)
I have been wanting to do a photo shoot with yoga poses for my website but have kept talking myself out of it for the past year. So many excuses! Fear plays a good mind game, yes?
But not this time.
This time, I realized my vision of me posing outside, literally on a sidewalk, in front of a huge graffiti mural. No tranquil beach scenes, no Crow, no palm trees gently swaying at sunset. Just me, my mat, and Broad frickin’ daylight.
My body did not hold me back. Fat thighs and a big belly did not hold me back. Fear of falling and not holding my headstand long enough to get the shot DID NOT HOLD ME BACK. (I did not hold my headstand long enough to get the shot. But I sure as shit tried!)
Downtown, rough neighborhood drama all around… and me finding pure bliss in the midst of it. I was able to connect with my deepest self, and pray peace around me.
I was able to extend my deepest love to the people we encountered today. Without fear and without judgement. Just … Love. ❤️
