Today marks the end of a huge chapter in my life. A love story, really, of traveling and volunteering abroad. Three and a half years ago I quit my corporate job and moved to New York to work in nonprofit without looking back. I’ve been lucky enough to support micro finance, education, and public health projects around the world over the past three years.
I’m in yet another transition. Sometimes the universe just does that- forces us to change. Who am I without my job, without my title, and the responsibilities I perform automatically everyday? What do I love and even broader, what do I want to do? Not always the easiest questions. I’ve learned that asking these questions doesn’t mean I am lost, but that I’m discovering something. I get to learn something new about myself.
Let’s start with what I love- traveling, education, public health, helping and connecting with people, New York, my own health, and fitness. I choose to put my energy and time into my body and mind. I want to deepen my practice in yoga. I get a week to collect myself, and then start an intensive month of yoga teacher training.
The unknown is both freeing and terrifying. I have not a clue as to how things will work out. I don’t know what will happen. I can take actions everyday to move towards my goals and what I want. I choose to be happy regardless. Stay tuned as I start out on my healing path as a yogi in training!
