Change. It’s not just the foreign metal things, aka buried couch treasure, we dig deep for when faced with the dreaded, yet rare, parking meter or pay phone (gasp!). Or the subject of a really great Bowie song. Change is real, it’s planned, anticipated, unexpected and inevitable. We can feel change coming, or we can be blindsided by it hitting us upside the head, sometimes when we’re upside down. Change can be wonderful and it can be devastating.
But the beauty is that adding up all that change can amount to something extremely valuable. Cha-ching!
Yoga teaches us not to attach to our past or our futures, but to ride the waves of change as they occur in the present with our clearest most present selves. Why are we talking so much about change? It could be the amazing spring-like weather teasing us before the season imminent, or it could be our Olympics withdrawals now that the winter games have come to a close — Jamie and Sage, we love you! Also, this week we’ve been reminded of how quickly things can change through love and loss, for the good and bad, but ultimately for the positive. We’ll take the red pill, please!
