Note to Self: Pace Yourself

long_distance_running

We’re not in a race. Go slowly and allow yourself space to grow into. Take your time. You don’t need to reach your maximum until your last breath.

– As heard at Soul Shack Yoga, North Hollywood, CA

I nearly jumped off of my mat in the middle of a standing crescent pose in order to write down those words.

I’ve been in a race my whole life, striving to get to “maximum Laura-ness” since…first grade.

What’s the hurry, buttercup?

You don’t need to reach your maximum until your last breath.

And who’s to say what “maximum” even means. Oh, wait, I think I’m the one to say what max is…for me…(and the same for you)!

    I put your check in the mail yesterday, so you should be receiving it soon.
