It's Time To Let Go
Through nearly ten years of practicing yoga, I’ve learned numerous lessons. Perhaps one of the most valuable is when to push harder and when to let go. In life, as in asana, sometimes the pressure is too great, and we simply must scale back, modify, or let go.
My mother was recently diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. She’s in great spirits and we are staying positive, but this will obviously be one of the greatest challenges we’ve ever faced as a family. Additionally, my twelve year old niece will be coming to live with us. While we are thrilled to have her, it will be an adjustment for everyone as she settles in to our family. I was offered a position at my kids’ school, and it will be my first time working a “real job” since having my son in 2010. I’ve been working as a yoga teacher, running my own yoga business, and assisting my husband at our family business, but my full time job has been caring for my family and home. This will be a big change.
All this to say, the intensity of life is increasing at the moment.
Because of this, I’ve decided it is time to let go of my blogging duties at Finding Isvara. I’ve been pushing through these last few months as the changes began to unfold, but the pressure is mounting. While my body isn’t at stake like it is in asana, the lesson is the same. It’s time to accept where I am and make modifications. It pains me greatly to leave, but right now, I need to focus my energy on my family’s most pressing needs.
I will miss the connection I feel with you, our readers. Sharing my practice with you all over the last year has been a great pleasure and privilege. Your interaction and feedback on my posts have been a source of learning and joy. Your support has lifted me up and inspired me. Thank you.
And my dear blog mates, Nikki, Carolyn, and Courtney, have become great friends. We work together on a daily basis and have become steady figures in each other’s lives, not just for blog issues, but all of life. Honestly, that connection is what I may miss the most! Thank you ladies for inviting me in and giving me such a wonderful opportunity. I will miss you all.
I will continue to share and promote all things Finding Isvara as I head into this new chapter. It will always be a cherished part of my life, and I’m so grateful to have made even the smallest difference in the lives of our readers.
Thank you! I love you! I wish you all the blessings in the world!
