Kismet (noun) meaning fate or predetermined, unavoidable destiny.
Have you ever been struck with a knowing that you were in the right place at the right time and that suddenly you knew the answer to something?
This is how I felt the moment I knew that my future path was to empower and educate through yoga and meditation.
You know those people that always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up and they went on to become a doctor, astrophysicist, school teacher, etc and it was everything they thought it was going to be, and they are successful and love their career? Do you know those people? (Frankly, does anyone know anyone that lucky?)
I have never had a job that I’ve loved. Sure I’ve had warm feelings about an occupation that made me think I was in the perfect job for me. Everybody’s had those feelings. I spent most of my 20s and 30s searching high and low for that elusive career, the one I thought I had missed out on by not actively following a designated career path. I fell into depression and discovered yoga and spirituality along the way, so not a total waste of time then right 😉
The funny thing is I have a perplexing need to excel at my work. I will work my ass off to make sure that I am the best at it. I have no idea why I do this, especially considering that I hated most, if not all of my jobs.
So, my question is this. When I do finally become a qualified yoga teacher, will I love it? And more importantly, will I love it enough to kick my own ass in order to be the best at it every single day? I have a feeling that it’s not going to matter. But I wanted to put it out there into the cosmos anyway.
love & light xo
