See that little blue dot there on the left of the picture? That's me with my 7 month little Tao on my back during our recent trip in New Zealand! The wind was blowing 80 km/h and it was hard to walk straight. It was quite an adventure :-)
You might wonder: "What the heck were you doing there?" Well, there were times I asked myself the same question, no doubt. To be honest, the answer today is "because it makes me feel so ALIVE". My body feels vibrantly alive. My senses are wide open. I'm speechless (apart from repeated WAWs) looking at the mountains, glaciers, lakes, clouds.
(I say all of this after making sure that Tao is warm, protected and well-fed)
I truly feel like I'm making the best of this life. Time is limited. I know that the end will come too soon. Before we know it, we'll be 80 with no teeth and no power in our legs and back. The time is NOW.
I had to laugh hearing this quote: "Live life on the edge, otherwise you're taking up too much space."
Do you feel like you're living life on the edge? Or are you always in your too cosy comfort-zone?
Are fears stopping you? What would happen if you felt the fear and did it anyway?
To be totally honest with you, I feel like as a yoga teacher I also dance at the edge. Our upcoming Yoga Teacher Training at Wild Rose feels like a very exciting risk. It is the first training at Wild Rose and the first one that I'm leading. I feel ready :-)
As you can see, I've changed the format of my emails too. I want to share more openly what's happening in my world. It feels a bit risky too.
I wish you all a beautiful and (healthy) risky day!
