✨I HAVE A REQUEST✨
Right now, I'm on my way to teach yoga.
To, once again, go against what I know be my best interest and leave the relative comfort and safety of my home to hold space for other people.
Now don't get me wrong, the humans who consistently and intentionally show up to my class are the BEST people. They are willing to reflect and willing to go deep and willing to PRACTICE what it means to be a perfect divine being living an imperfect human life. They are loving and compassionate and I'm grateful I get to work with them week after week.
But it doesn't mean it's not hard. It doesn't mean I don't sit in my bed for a really long time asking myself "why"? Why should I leave? Why should I put myself through the fear and doubt? Why should I subject myself to the pain of being strong for someone else's sake when in the wake of the Philando Castile verdict I think that I should be the one who gets to break down while others hold me?
Honestly because it's my job and I am dedicated to it. So I'm going to show up because I will have people I need to show up for.
But I have a request....
For the next couple of hours can you think of me? Even once? Can you hold me in your heart and send me a little bit of peace or strength or comfort or love?
Can you hold space for me?
I will do it for you.
Again and again. ✌🏽
