Happy April! Spring here in the Northeast is such a beautiful time of new beginnings. This afternoon I am taking my kids to the first travel Tae Kwon Do tournament in our center's history. A group of 30-40 of us are going to Vermont, having dinner tonight and then competing tomorrow. It has created quite a buzz and our kids are so excited! It fills my soul completely to know that my family is part of this extended unit and that I have this village that supports us, loves us and reinforces the values I try to instill in our family. If I think of this on a broader level, I have several communities in my life for myself and my kids: our school communities, my local yoga community, my positive psychology community, our place of worship community. Having community acts like an extended family and allows me to navigate through this life never feeling alone. I challenge you to thing about your communities in your life and think about how to nurture them so they provide this for you. If you don't have any, look at places in your life where you might be able to cultivate them. Have a great weekend!!
The one constant in life is change. How we navigate that change is who we are. Creating sustainable change is a more deliberate action and gives us the life we want. This is what my practice and my life mission is all about. All of my life experiences, work history and spiritual journey have lead me to this path - to help others create transformation in their lives and live lives that they love.
