Let me tell you what I know: it’s not easy to put this practice into practice. We can earnestly study the philosophy of yoga, but to know it—to live it—requires that we step courageously into the present moment and surrender to what is.
As many of you know, Billy and I had to put our beloved Ellie to sleep just two days ago. And, because many of you know me, you know how deeply I feel this loss. In the spirit of living my yoga, I’m going to take a short break from my writing to give myself some space to grieve. This is not easy for me—I’m compelled to focus on my creative passion rather than on myself—but if I’m being honest, I need a little time to care for my broken heart.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon, ready to write and create and share! Thank you so much for your love and support—for reminding me that Ellie’s death is a big deal, and that I should be kind to myself. I’m taking your words to heart and putting my practice into practice—I’m surrendering to the now. See you soon.
