People say trust the process. What does that really mean? Does it mean creating a safe space to fail and learn? And if we don’t trust the process does that mean we don’t get the opportunity to learn and grow?

It means that you can’t control everything you can only plan, work and show up. So, the option you have is to, allow the flow of your life to unfold. Show up, exhale and be brave.

practice and process

To practice and process, even when you don’t feel like it.

Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength

― Teddy Roosevelt

be brave!

Standing in the middle of the room – take a breath in and exhale, the new year is beginning. It seems like most of us have to be reminded to stand alignment because it’s easy to get off track and worn out. The new year is a great reminder to come back to yourself.

Be Brave!

This is in the end of the only kind of courage that is required of us: the courage to face the strangest the most unusual, the most inexplicable experiences that can meet us. Rainer Maria Rilke
