Lit UP

 The prints I left in the sand that time I walked into the Pacific on my hands. (I came back.)

What lights you up?

What does that feel like?

For me, it feels infinite. Without limit. It feels like being fully present, entirely capable, and genuinely at ease.

You have seen this and hopefully you have felt it.

And this feeling of lighting yourself up, of being so connected and in tune with your body and your being and the present moment, it’s not just for Michael Jordan, Michael Phelps, Serena Williams and Misty Copeland.

This is for us. Call us “average people” living “average lives” if you want, since we can’t all win gold medals and break world records all the time.

But this feeling is for us. We are beautiful authentic original people, lighting ourselves up all the time. Just walking our dogs, working at our desks, cooking dinner, crying with friends, laughing by ourselves, sweating in our workouts… this is for us.

Feeling connected and in-tune with our bodies and our method of movement. Feeling present. Feeling lit up.

How do you do this?

That’s up to you, really. And it’s a journey and a process. It’s a daily cultivation.

I believe it is that most of all - a daily cultivation of building connection to yourself. Tuning in more often than tuning out. Showing up again and again. And since movement is part of everyday, as we dance through life and develop physical fitness routines, choose one that benefits you in this way also.

Choose on that brings you closer to yourself. Movement that invites you to stay engaged in the present moment.

And you do this, day after day, and through this connection you get to know yourself, and you enjoy yourself. And you find your light, and you rock it.

So what really lights you up?

You. You do.

All the time.
