The past week has been pretty much an emotional rollercoaster ride for me, simply because of the fact that the summer vacation is ending and I’m heading back to college for my final year tomorrow. I used to be really frustrated with life’s circumstances, that I can’t quite do what I really want to do yet, and I felt stuck at a place doing something that I no longer feel for. Simply put, my final year in school is going to be really hectic and I am not looking forward to it at all. If 2014 had taught me anything, it would be to fight to do what you love – because life’s too short to be stuck at doing something that you don’t enjoy.
But in any case, I have to complete college and I need to graduate. So, instead of moping around, I am going to seize the day, turn things around, and work hard and make time yoga, this website, and everything that I have been busying myself with for the past 2 months. If I want to eventually live the dream of teaching yoga and spreading the love of yoga to people all around, I have to fight for it, and I have to work hard for it.
I once read something somewhere that resonated so much with me: “If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough.” Every day I question my dreams and I question my ability to reach my dreams. But most of the time, we just need that sheer guts and impulse to follow through and not think so much. My dreams scare me so much, but that’s what makes me experience life and experience what it means to be living and breathing your passion.
So this week, if there’s something that you’ve been wanting to do but you’ve been holding it back because you were afraid, just do it. No matter whether it is your first inversion, your first time running outdoors, picking up the phone and calling that long lost friend, signing up for a class that you’ve been wanting to go for a long time. Because sometimes, life starts right outside your comfort zone.
We all need this pep talk at one point or the other. No matter what, just keep going.
Have a great week ahead! <3
