I haven't written for a while since I have been distracted with wedding planning. I am now married and happy to provide more insight during such a unique time in my life. The transition from being single to married has been an interesting one. In yoga philosophy, we learn to embrace transitions. In vinyasa flow class we move from one asana to the next in a relaxed fluid breath. But in our daily lives, transitions are not always so graceful. In real life transitions are not beautifully choreographed according to our comfort level. We are not always prepared for the next movement. With every major transition ones's perspective changes. The body and mind are physically and mentally and spiritually in a new direction. You don't feel like the same person. When a transition is healthy, changes bring needs from the soul to the surface. The real you shines through as you become more authentic. However, a light also intensifies the similarities and differences among people around you. Sometimes the changes allows you to see just how different you are from people and sometimes this growth can alternatively strengthen the bond. Nevertheless, sometimes people can't follow you to the next chapter in your life because they are not evolving in the same way. Often during transitions you have to say good-bye, to make room for the growth you need. This doesn't mean these folks will never be a part of your life. Never underestimate the power of people to change and even be inspired by your growth. Everyone is on their own path towards reaching their version of nirvana.It is important to be patient with these people while also giving yourself the space you need to fully evolve.
