#BragAlert 🚨 I have had a spark in my #Soul this week after one of our Teacher Trainees said this to me 👆🏻... I'm touched deeply and wanted to not only share - but to encourage you to also speak courageous, kind words to others. Sometimes we only hear those squeaky wheels 🙀Life is too short not to be kind as often as possible.
In regards to her comments, I do try to keep my feet grounded firmly on the Earth - even though I have been blessed with many life accomplishments and esteemed awards, I don't walk around acting better than anyone else, or attached to a superficial image as a means to replace presence and vulnerability ... I simply love Yoga and do my best every day to live Yoga. To me that means: I AM Authentic, I AM Honest, I AM of Service, I have done the real nitty gritty work to discover who I AM, I make choices from Integrity and not from Ego, I stand up proudly for what is #True regardless of Majorities or Trends - and I walk away from anything and anyone that does not #LiveTrue. I've even been known to tip a few hypocritical tables here and there. My life is living proof that it works because eventually those with eyes to see will recognize you from the inside, and vice versa. Otherwise you may get locked in with less than integral, co-dependent relationships, or running a wild hamster wheel trying to prove yourself to be something other than who you are. And that just sounds miserable. #Gratitude #TeacherTraining #Testimonial #ThankYou #AlannaZabel #AZIAM #Yoga #LiveTrue #WorthTheWait #Integrity #Authenticity #Honesty
