Last night my yoga studio started our 40 Days to a Personal Revolution program. This is my second time participating in the program and I am so darn excited! No only do we have an amazingly talented leader, but I am so ready to dive in, dig deep, and see all the changes I make in my life for the better. The first time I worked through the program, for me, there was a lot of fear, apprehension, anxiety, and holding back. This time the vibe already feels completely different. There’s a calm, almost a stillness I felt in last nights meeting. I feel like I am entering this program from a place of being grounded.
During our last program in the fall of 2015 I uncovered so many truths within myself. I was able, for the first time ever, to articulate and verbalize thoughts I hadn’t been able to for years. It felt like all of those webs that were tangled in my brain became untangled. I had some pretty huge shifts during the last program and so I thought it would be neat to document and blog my way through the program this time.
Last night, as a group, we set ground promises- not rules. Why? Because rules are made to be broken, promises are forever. And for me, this program is forever. This program will forever change me. When I am finished with this program at the end of February I won’t be the same person I was when I started.
During the program we make a commitment to practice 6 days a week, be mindful of our eating habits, AM & PM daily meditations, and attend weekly meetings.
We were also asked last night to set some personal promises for ourselves. Attainable goals that would set us up for success. For me that looks like:
– Being authentic and true to myself as well as those around me
– Getting uncomfortable
– Sharing without fear
-Trusting the process-wholeheartedly
– Digging deep
– Building community
– Less shame
– No internet/social media after 9pm
Each week we will work through 2 of Baron Baptiste’s Laws and 1 chapter of his book. This week our laws are:
1. Seek the Truth
2. Be Willing to Come Apart
And our chapter is: Presence
I cannot wait to start this journey, and see what lies on the other side of it!
