"We must cultivate our heads. But nurture our hearts." -- Lailah Gifty Akita . So, to ensure @yogi_mhc can properly continue to cultivate that head, I made sure to keep it nice and stable in my hand in this pose. 😉 . I spend a lot of time in my head. Sometimes too much. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels that way. The changes that have occurred in my life over the past 4 years have really taught me to break out of my head a lot more. I grew up analyzing and thinking more than doing. I was always intent on being fully prepared before I took anything on, but if you wait until you have all the answers, often times you either miss out on the opportune time to do the thing or you simply never actually do what you prepared to do. In her book, "You Are a Badass", which I read earlier this year, @jensincero talks about allowing yourself to surrender some of your control and letting the universe guide you. If you're brave enough to take the first steps even though you're still not quite sure of where you're going, you'll find that the universe has a way of nudging you in the right direction, provided you've got your ears and eyes open. In Jen's words: "Surrendering is the free-falling backwards into the unknown and trusting that The Universe will catch you." . So, I know there will be lots of things that scare the crap out of us, but as I finish off 2018, I hope you'll join me in planting some new seeds and seeing what The Universe will bring us. I've got some crazy ideas and I'm fighting off my Kapha imbalances to light a fire underneath me to get me motivated and passionate again.
