Being At Peace
Before finding yoga, I worked for a big corporation, not because I wanted to, but because the money was good. I had gone to university for commerce not because I wanted to do that, but because I thought it was practical. I found the job easily enough, but I disliked it from day one. I met some pretty amazing people there though, so I felt it was a small price to pay to be able to work along side my best friends. As time passed, it became quite obvious that we were just cogs in a (not even) well-oiled machine. They could not care less about our well being or happiness. Luckily for me I stumbled upon yoga, fell in love and eventually took my first teacher training. It got to the point at work, where I was treated so poorly that I felt annoyed, agitated, aggravated, angry, sad, and upset ALL. THE. TIME. I couldn’t find the strength to leave quite yet because that place was a financial safety net for me. After much more horrible treatment and downright abuse there, I found the strength to leave. I took the plunge and focused my career on teaching yoga. Now, almost a year later, I feel happy and fulfilled with what I do EVERYDAY. Teaching yoga is what I NEED to do, it is a necessity for me. Not living my passion was slowing destroying me, it was doing serious damage that took much meditation to heal from. Now, instead of molding my lifestyle around my career, I have chosen to mold my career around my lifestyle and my life is so much better for it. I no longer waste tears of anger and frustration. I no longer feel abused, over looked, or unappreciated. I feel at PEACE every day. I see people who currently feel the way I felt and I hope that through sharing my passion with them, they too can eventually find that same sense of peace that I now have. That very peace is one of the many reasons that I LOVE teaching yoga!
