let it flow, let yourself go

i know, it's been EONS since i've posted...been hard at work and concurrently immersed in training for yoga tune up a wellness modality developed by my teacher, jill miller. i've also been part of the launch of a new rockin' workout called pound . while the two are on extreme ends of the spectrum, both are amazing methods that integrate major core and pilates work. they are also incredible stress relievers.

anyhow, so, i've been busy, a little more anxious than usual, but the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow was that i've learned a lot of life lessons in and out of my training over the past two months, some exhilarating from the start, and some quite humbling before the relief in clarity. the underlying message throughout, was to "let it go". for people who are perfectionists and high achievers, "letting go" might take a little more work - or a little less, actually!

so here's a nice little reminder that i will share - a quote from lao tzu, "by letting it go, it all gets done. the world is won by those who let it go. but when you try and try, the world is beyond the winning."

for the musical take on the concept, of "letting go", click here for the original writers of the famous beastie boys song !
