Yogini gone walkabout

My first ever blog entry:

It all started with a broken heart and a New Years resolution of building a new relationship with myself. For me, 2013 was a year of processing and finding peace with the past.

Over the year I traveled from the outback of NSW, to Melbourne, to Southern Thailand, to Melbourne, to Byron Bay, to Melbourne, to Adelaide, to Melbourne, to Los Angeles, to Montreal, to New York City, to Hungary, to Berlin, to Spain, to Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas! I traveled by bus, train, bicycle, foot, motor bike, plane, boat and car; lugging around my huge backpack filled with stretchy yoga clothes, a yoga mat, amazing outfit I refused to leave in Melbourne, beads and bits and pieces for making crafts, jewellery (like a lot), glitter, a hula hoop, poi, ukulele, computer, sleeping bag.. The list continues... Yes I know, I have been carrying around a lot of baggage on my back!

"Travel light, spread the light, be the light." I recently read this on the tag of a yogi tea bag. It got me thinking... That whilst I've been dragging my heavy pack from place to place, my heart has become lighter and lighter.

Throughout my travels I got to better know my fears, insecurities, judgements and doubts. I learned that these all weigh heavily on the heart, and that when we are able to acknowledge, accept and forgive these things about ourselves then we are able to get on with life! With a lighter heart we are able to believe in goodness again and to trust that we will be supported in living a life that makes us truly happy.

As I reflect on my past year, I am so grateful for the people who inspired and helped guide me to follow my bliss. By following your truth you are lighting the way for others to do the same. These angels reminded me how to use my wings.

Travel light, spread the light, be the light.

I step into 2014, still carrying my heavy pack, but with a heart full of light. I am inspired by others who are, like me, spreading their light by living their truth! ... To spread my light... This is my resolution for 2014
