Bravery

Posted on 06 January 2016

I love jumping into information that excites me whether it is a book, an article or watching a video. I spent most of 2015 listening to podcasts from highly motivated people, making mental notes of personal changes I needed to make and practicing self-care to improve my day-to-day life. I practiced mediation and yoga. I wrote on my walls at home (in chalk, of course) of all the things I wanted for myself. When we set goals for ourselves, sometimes we achieve aspects of that goal and at times, we fail. 

Over 2015, I had taught my first round of yoga classes, decreased my anxiety and practiced self-love (if you're not practicing self-love, you should start right NOW). As the year went on, somehow I lost momentum. 

                                                                         

Today, I read a quote that reigned true for me. It was a reflection of my lost momentum - ducking away from success, hiding behind my professional career and not surprisingly, the fear of failure. As I start the new venture with oasiszen, i'm going all-in while keeping true to myself. I will put my best person forward and in order to do that, I will continue to practice self-love. 

"If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Getting back up requires us to turn toward the truth of our struggle and look it in the eye. When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free." - Brene Brown
