Things are changing. The skies are beginning to clear, we are slowly getting together in small groups, and we are navigating our way into our ‘new normal’. This week, take a moment to notice the changes over the past few months. Is there anything that’s different about your life since the beginning of Covid? Can you look back and see that all along, even when it may not have felt like it, you were growing?
Are there attitudes, habits, rituals, or routines that you might want to carry over into the ‘new normal’? Have there been any changes in how you spend your free time? As human beings, we are so adaptable. We are able to become adjusted to new conditions. We are so much more resilient than we think. So lean in. Change can be safe, change can be good, change can allow us to experience freedom.
It takes time for nature to change things into
what they're becoming.
It takes time for things to develop.
Be patient with yourself and life.
Trust the process of growth.
Just as the world changes around us, so do the circumstances and situations in our lives. We are led to our next lesson, our next adventure. There's no need to deny change, to fear it or to fight against it. Change is inevitable. Just as the earth is in constant motion and transformation, so are we. Sometimes change happens slowly, steady, gradually, and other times it can feel abrupt and eruptive. Too often I feel we resist it. When we can learn to stop fighting it, we can learn to embrace it.
Be patient with yourself. Each step of the process of growth and change is important. You're nurturing and nourishing the seeds of change. So keep looking forward. Keeping coming alive in these moments. Keep remembering that every small step forward counts. The time spent in the quiet, reflective moments will bring clarity. Change is inevitable - and look at how much you've grown over the last couple of months.
Just as the world around us changes and evolves, so do the circumstances and situations in our lives. We live in a universe that is alive, vibrant, and constantly evolving. Change is the way nature, and the universe move through each period of our lives and into our destiny.
There's no need to deny change, to fear it, or fight against it. Change is inevitable. Allow change to happen. Work with it as your life continues to unfold. Sometimes change comes crashing in one moment, and other times it happens more gradually.
Learn to trust your body - its signs, signals, warnings, and excitement. Take a moment this week to notice the changes in your body, in your mind, in your life. Take a moment to cultivate love for yourself, for where you are at right now in your journey. Can you be content with what comes up? Can you love both the things that feel good, and the things that feel hard at the same time? Hold space for yourself, for the change, with kindness and with gratitude. Change is coming. It's here. You can feel it in the air. You can feel it in yourself.

This space will essentially become a diary for the spring clinic. I will be uploading weekly videos to share information, motivation and instructions on particular workouts or the new clinic format.
