“As long as our orientation is toward perfection or success, we will never learn about unconditional friendship with ourselves, nor will we find compassion.” -Pema Chodron
Yoga teaches me to release ambition and relax into intuition. I love this quote by Pema Chodron. It reminds me that success and achievement is a by-product of mindfulness, inner love and compassion. For the past 6 months, I've been riding myself to update my website. It's been a HUGE GLARING ITEM on my to-do list, like the swan hanging from my neck, noose-like and tight. And of course, whatever website I built had to be perfect, nay, more than perfect....remarkable even.
Last week I said F*** IT! I'll let go of finishing it, let go of it being perfect and just play around. And you know what? As soon as I let go of perfection and the goal of completion, I finished it in less than a week.
Funny how things like that happen! I look at this as a starting point, with much more content to be added later, but at least it's here and contains current information in a simple-to-navigate format (I hope).
So, take a look at my brand new site, and go easy on yourself today. Remember that the important things are usually the small, simple ones.
