Reclaiming my edge

If your driving force is comfort and ease, you will miss out on pursuing that which is meaningful. ~Kristen Tobias
 
I came across this line in a newsletter from a professional organization I belong to and it will not leave me alone.
 
I spent the first years of my adult life striving for the next thing, working toward an ideal defined by society. I had no idea if I was in or out of my comfort zone. I was just working my ass off to be in the (supposed) safety zone. Then I woke up. And I lived way outside my comfort zone. I started a yoga studio. I quit my job. I bought a hundred year old building and turned it into the wellness center of my dreams. I created a life on my own terms. Now five years later it feels like I’ve lost my edge. My wild and crazy dreams from back then are now my daily reality.
 
At the studio where I practice yoga there is this teacher who kind of scares me. She is stern, she offers an intense class, and if you modify to take it down a notch she assumes you didn’t understand her directions. When she teaches I go way further than I think I can. She takes me outside my comfort zone and shows me I am capable of showing up in a bigger, bolder way. She is exactly what I need right now - someone to push me to the next level, a place where I have not been willing to take myself.
 
I miss wild and crazy. I get that after all the turning-my-life-upside-down stuff my nervous system may have needed a rest. And now I am rested. I am living in the land of comfort and ease. And it’s gotten a little stagnant. I am itching for some discomfort. Craving the kind of scary teacher’s class. Dreaming of my next big thing. 

xoxo,

Mindy



Gathering brave, badass dreamers,
Daring to share the true stories,
Dancing with life in the ampersand,
Falling in love with the sacred now.
