THANK YOU THURSDAY: 🌟GILLIAN 🌟
I couldn't have known all that you were giving me. But you knew.
Thank you for what you've done. Thank you for creating and maintaining a practice that empowers people to be stronger, more creative, and more open. Thank you for sharing your arugula salad, those pita cracker things, your spare bedroom, and what you keep in the freezer. Thank you for opening the door for me, into your wealth and wisdom. Thank you for the hundreds of hours you've had to look at me on Skype. Thank you for your endless patience when I get frustrated. Thank you for introducing me to my body, and the empowerment that arrived when I did. Thank you for sharing your abundance without pause.
Thank you for all the hours of collaboration and work. You've toughened me up and asked more of me than I thought I had, and saw in me what I couldn't. Thank you for letting me rant about random stuff in the middle of a teacher training, when you know I am getting us way off schedule, and eight women are looking at me like I'm nuts, and you just graciously smile and nod. Thank you for the playlist that had the rifle sounds in it, that accidentally went off during savasana, terrifying a class of meditating people. Thank you for the resulting gut-wrenching cry-laughter, when we could not, even though deeply inappropriate, pull it together afterwards. Thank you for Bergamot and all of your color coordinated workout outfits. Knowing it would likely take years for me to grasp the value of what you were giving me, you gave it all anyway. That is grace. Thank you for it.
Thank you for all the tools you've given me to teach others, and teach others to teach others, and teach myself. I will use these tools for the rest of my life.
You've empowered innumerable people. Maybe the return of that kind of love feeds you daily. Today, I hope you are overcome with it. May the peaceful knowingness of what you give be the wave you surf all year. May joy swallow you.
Thank you for that day in 2007 when I found you. Gillian, Thank you for TEN years.
Thank you for YBB.
