Hello World, I'm Julia. I like things that sparkle. I like glitter. I was once told that the perfect gift for me would be a big pink sparkly ball. The idea seemed so perfect I couldn't stop giggling and smiling. There is a lot more than glitter and sparkle to think about but that is basically what it all boils down to in my thoughts now. When all is said and done, is what I am doing make me sparkle? Because I do just want *it* all to be sparkle and glitter.
I guess you could say I am a jack of all trades. I used to get flustered by the question, "so what do you like to do?" What do YOU like to do??? It would put me in a panic. Still kind of does. Name something and I'll tell you whether I like it or not. I'm a yogini, teacher, fashion designer, seamstress, story lover, dog enthusiast, singer, coffee fan, tea enjoyer, cupcake, cookie, cake, chocolate addict, on a quest for magic, tattoo collector, aspiring barista, knitter, crafty crafter. In a nutshell. If I had to boil myself down into the pieces. I seem to like the word boil right now. What does that mean... Hmmm... Like everyone, I am a collage. There are many bits and pieces that make me me; some stand out more than others, bigger, different textures, but they all come together with importance to complete the whole. Make sense?
Recently I received my yoga teacher certification from Kripalu Center and am excited, nervous, scared, happy, etc. to be tiptoeing down that path. Exploring what this might hold in store for me. Mostly, I am excited about being excited about something. You know the feeling? To pinpoint something I'm passionate about is great. And yes, the feeling ebbs and flows, sometimes I think I've lost it completely in the cracks somewhere, but then it appears again! I'm excited for when it appears again. Sharing my yoga with others, exploring movement and getting out of the sometimes all consuming thought patterns, those brief but wonderful moments when I feel totally at ease and myself while playing yoga with others is what makes my world sparkle right now. Adds the stardust to my eyes. Make me feel more alive, in touch with the energy within and around me, totally living life. Mmmmmm.
Tell me, what does that for you?
may you be happy, healthy, and peaceful
