I’d Rather Die Trying…..

than not try at all! I said this while teaching class recently. I was encouraging students to give their best effort, to try a pose that has been challenging, to be willing to meet the challenge head on. Those words have stuck with me ever since (pretty amazing since they came out of my mouth!). There are certain things I know I am not willing to try: sky diving, mountain climbing, scuba diving are all on my list of No Ways! But, in the last year I found myself willing to try zip-lining, yoga on the roof, and acro-yoga. It was all less scary and more fun than I ever imagined possible. This willingness to try new things is showing up in other part of my life as well. I took on new speaking engagements, stepped up to teach teachers in yoga and am looking at ways to broaden our reach at Divine Power Yoga. Being willing to try new things on my mat has led to my being willing to try new things in life. In fact, it’s created a sense of discomfort with the status quo….and I am excited to meet the next challenge! So…how about you….what are you willing to die trying??
