  • It’s been almost a year since @danatrixieflynn informed me that I would be teaching classes at the @churchofyoganola. I say “informed” because it was in no way posed as a question or an offer, it was more like being pushed off a ledge. A ledge I spent close to 15 years dancing around and exploring and readying myself for... and yet. I was still terrified of the jump.
.
After moving to NOLA I thought I had found solace from my dance with the ledge. Ha.
.
I have always been a methodical creature of habit. Someone who takes leaps that look crazy from the outside, but that I have exhaustively explored and prepared for. Leaps I know I can take without falling on my face. Without looking like a fool. 
Well if this past year has taught me anything, it’s that sometimes there is no way around looking like a fool, or failing. Sometimes you just have to jump. Or in my case, the universe has to guide you to that person who is going to push you (out of pure love, of course). 😜
.
You flail, and you struggle and it’s awkward. People like what you offer up and people dislike what you offer up. You pace around for hours and obsessively practice and fret only to forget it all the second the spotlight is on you, despite knowing your shit. You fail. You learn. And through this process you build up muscles that you didn’t know you even had, and that aren’t always of the physical variety.
.
Even though I haven’t felt so awkward or vulnerable since middle school as when teaching this past year, it has not once crossed my mind that I should give up. I haven’t tried to convince myself that I would be much happier and at peace if I just quit—which I am very good at!!—because I have never been so sure that I’m meant to do something as I am this.
.
If you’re dancing with a ledge, big or small, and waiting on perfection.. consider the possibility—actually, the likelihood—that perfection will never come. That you’re going to have to jump. Or be pushed. And that you *will* look like a fool. And that. Is the messy, human, painful process of ideas and hopes and dreams... becoming reality.
.
This, is my living prayer.
