Jumping Hurdles

Screen shot 2013-09-17 at 4.54.04 PMLately I have been quite uncomfortable. By lately I mean the past few years.

A few years ago I went through an awfully beautiful divorce (Yes, awfully beautiful. You can read more about that here). Through my awfully beautiful divorce I had shed my “Type A”, controlling, old skin and developed into a different woman, a more compassionate, patient and real woman(or so I told myself). The kind of woman who FEELS everything deeply and invasively.

In the past several months I have been in an almost constant state of struggle. From my personal relationships to moving FORM{yoga} into it’s own space, and with most everything in between, discomfort has been present. Along with the burden of struggle, the weight of uncertainty has settled in around me in most every aspect of my life.

As I slowly walked my son home from school today my mind was going into hyper-drive trying to find a way out of these situations and events that have left me feeling so heavily burdened and uneasy. How can I fix this? What can I do? Who can I call? How can I control these uncontrollable situations?

For a very clear moment I had the realization that this is just where I am right now. This is my work. There is no hurrying this process. This hurdle has been placed for me to leap over it gracefully…or not so gracefully.

Either way I will choose to persevere knowing it is all part of growth.
