Truth and Trust

My one-word intention for 2013 was truth. It unfolded unpredictably, at times painfully, ultimately beautifully.

Nothing is inherent: Money does not buy class or happiness.Travel does not make one worldly or empathetic.Yoga asana is empty without aligned intention. Charisma is only skin deep.

No hurries, no worries. Saying, “I don’t know,” can be one of the most inspiring & liberating actions.

I am less attached to building the resume I thought I wanted when I was in my 20s and early 30s. I am more devoted to living a life of integrity and gratitude. 

Yoga continues to infuse my life, reminding me to align action with intention. How I act in this life is more important than creating a life of shiny, empty actions.

Humility and gratitude: I can say all this and act from an incredibly privileged, first-world place. May we each remember how incredibly fortunate we are to live in a safe place with running water, access to education, etc.

My word for 2014 is trust.
