I’ve learned many things about my current human existence in the 34 years we’ve been blessed together — the least of which is that I thrive on progress.
The only constant in life is change. With change there is stress, and with stress there is progress. I have experienced much change in my life and am grateful for each and every lesson along the way. Through stress and progress I have shed tears and relationships with people, with places, with jobs that are no longer serving me. And as I crawl my way to the light, to the true self, I am lead deeper into the important and necessary relationship with myself, again and again.
I spent the past 19 years of my life working towards being a graphic designer and running an art department — and I was thrilled to be given that opportunity to see my hard work come to fruition. But, when I got there, I knew something was missing. I wasn’t unhappy, but I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t fulfilled.
I started teaching Yoga few years ago and experienced a joy and sense of work fulfillment like never before. So, naturally, I began searching for a way to find that fulfillment in all areas of my life. I meditated on the idea and devised a secret “2-Year Exit Strategy” that would launch me into a career path that suited my needs. About year into my Exit Strategy, the unexpected happened, I found a new job,… a really amazing new job!
And, last month, I experienced what felt like a massive cliff jump as I actually quit my “day-job”…
I quit my safe, secure, well-deserved day-job and began working for “the Movement” — the Ayurvedic Movement that is.
I am 6 weeks into my new job and I couldn’t be happier. Although some days can be stressful, the stress is lessened when I remind myself of all of the good that Ayurveda brings to world. This ancient and traditional system has healed the world for thousands of years and I am thrilled and fulfilled to dedicate my time, energy, and talents towards the Movement. Jai!
