“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” Chinese Proverb
I will not settle for living a mediocre life.
I started to stand for this truth when I had my dark night of the soul/early mid-life crisis at the age of 25. I felt alone, lost, confused, and “dead” inside — I also felt like I was waking up for the first time. Some call this a “spiritual awakening.” Although a very difficult time, (it is called “dark night” for a reason), it was a blessing in disguise to remind me that there is really more to life than “this.” I now devote my personal and professional life to cultivating that expression of who I really am - and who you really are: a divine human being.
Critical to this process was coming back home to my body and *experiencing* feeling comfortable in my own skin. I learned, and continue to practice, to go beyond tolerating survival or so-mode and enjoy thriving with more ease and grace! You can too;-)
