On Striving & Contentment

In 2014, my New Year’s resolution was to begin teaching yoga. I may be a bit of an anomaly with respect to resolutions. I kind of like them. Setting them actually seems to light a fire under my sitz bones. So, yes, today I do teach several yoga classes a week. But what’s interesting is that, even though I achieved what I set out to do, I still feel like I am not quite “there,” wherever “there” is. (I mean, you haven’t seen me on the cover of Yoga Journal yet, have you?). I am still focused on striving rather than experiencing the pride I should in reaching my goals.
