The West Coast!
I have officially been in San Francisco for a month. Teaching in a whole new place has brought up a TON of mental and emotional fluctuations. Insecurities like 'am I good enough to teach here' or 'will anyone come to my class?!' or 'I have to bike up THAT hill to get to the studio?!' are present, but the thing that keeps me the most grounded has been the idea of spanda. Everything expands and contracts. Life is one giant fluctuation. Enjoy the times that are easy and light and fun. Enjoy the times that are challenging and dark. At the end of the day, that radiant light within is stronger than any temporary obstacle. Here's to next chapters! I am ready for it!
