Dear Darlings, *
Here be me with a love letter of sorts for you and yours. I want you to know how lovely you are. Just as you are. Right now – with no improvements – in this moment you are perfectly as you need to be.
Why do I know this with such conviction? It’s simple. Why on earth would you not be. You can only be exactly as you are in this moment – so it must be – that is exactly perfect.
You are uniquely you – and I am uniquely, brilliantly me. I know who I am. I live with myself every day – and I have spent such a very long time examining the eddies and pools of my me-ness. I’ve wanted more, longed for less. Journeyed all over the world in search of me.
Turned out I was there all along – of course I was – where the hell else could I have been?
So I know – that you are perfect.
Now I’m going to tell you something a little less palatable. You waste a lot of time. Yes you do my love. You know you do. Worrying about things that aren’t knowable. Stressing about if you are good enough. Can we agree right now that you are. Good enough. Lovely enough. Strong enough. Worthy enough.
Good – now then, now we’ve freed up a gazillion minutes of our life, previously given over to moithering and stressing about shit that isn’t important. Can we get on with filling that time with amazingness?
Paint, write, dance, snog, play with your dog, your cat – your hair. Hug a friend, call your Dad – and if he has passed then have the conversation in your head. Be still my friend – open up a space for magic to happen.
Where your intention goes, magic will flow. With all those minutes saved – you can perfect a new skill – or give time to a lost passion.
If you would simply agree with me that you are perfect – and that you have no need to waste a nano-second of time faffing about, silting up your juicyness with worry – then you will free up your mind, body, time and have oodles of creative spizznisch (it’s a word if I say it is!) to march forward into wonderment and joy.
JUST DECIDE TO DO IT...
While you are on your mat – finding what feels good. Remember that just because you arrived there you will finish your practice improved.
That’s it. I also want to offer you those good vibes you asked for. Have them my friend – I am radiating my very best gear around the world for you. All you have to do is radiate yours and WHAMMO! We’ll connect and SHAZZAMO! You’ll have noticed that it wasn’t my sendng of the good vibe – but your willingness to send and receive your own good vibrations.
You are loved. You are perfect. You are enough.
- I wrote this little love note for some yogini friends who hang out in Adriene Mischler’s Kula – which is a yoga community sprung from her wonderful Youtube yoga videos. It had a huge positive response – and so I was encouraged to share it here – in an open space – feel free to share, tweet, copy and reblog – please credit me and this blog. That’s just good manners! x
