" it seems right to declare its time to set sail towards my dream with droplets of courage. "
YES! Here I sit at almost 47 (Saturday!) having just launched my new career as a yoga and meditation teacher. I have practiced for more than 20 years but only this year began to feel like perhaps I have something to share with others. However, initially I worried I was too old...but last week I stood in front of a small group of wonderful people in my community, dropped my guard and reached deep into my heart. I can hardly believe I did it and that I shall be doing it again this evening. Yes, I might crash and burn, but oh how I (and all of us) might fly!!!
I love how you have created categories and I LOVE your art. I'm excited to be on this journey with you, dear friend across the water.🧡🍁
I love the categorisation of topics Renee, it makes your work comprehensive and easy to follow. And the art desk is so inspiring!
The wisdom in your piece of courage is so wonderful but more than that it is authentic. So few people are truly authentic anymore because it takes courage. If you are in the business world it takes even more courage to be authentic. A beautiful reading and a way to find enthusiasm in taking that chance again.
This is my favorite one yet!
Congratulations on the new sections, Renee! (Ironically, I've been thinking of getting rid of the sections on my own Substack!)
So much wisdom here. I love the idea that listening to your dreams is an act of self-compassion. I also like "relaxed focus", which chimes with me because I've been doing TM for years, and the idea of that is to enable you to get to a state of what they call 'restful alertness'. Their analogy is an arrow drawn fully back on the bow: it's at rest, but it's a dynamic rest, ready to fly off any second.
I hope your dreams book publishing materialise. I'm sure they will. And kudos to you for being brave enough to share them.
I am going to go back and listen to this one when my courage to try new things is failing. Why not try something new? Why let fear of failure stop me before I begin? It is such a boost knowing other people are facing the same fear, and finding droplets of courage to keep going. This is my new favorite compass reading. Thank you!!
Holy shit, this is EXCITING!
I love this idea of sharing our dreams - at first I thought you meant sleeping dreams, until I realized you were talking about facing the fears embedded in courage, and when I got it, my heart pumped blood faster out of excitement!
Also, you're so extremely talented - while I was reading this, I just wanted to give you a huge hug. I'm so proud of you - you keep going, pushing, practicing. Look at what you're creating! What *you* are building (have built)! There's no doubt in my mind that your dream will come true - I'm here for the whole shebang! <3
