I’ve been trying to change my perspective on things like fear, uncertainty and lack of control during this new journey that I have undertaken.

Maybe it’s just that I didn’t have the time to recognize them or I’ve been too caught up in everything to realize I was being sent a message.
A few of those signs have come during yoga classes that I’ve taken from a specific instructor at Awake the Studio. As I spoke about when I first shared my new challenge last week, Alexis likes to end her classes with an oracle card. The first time I got Surrender.

All I know is that life is full of adventure but we so often confuse it with something we need to be afraid of. When what we really should be doing is diving in headfirst. After all, adventure awaits …
