Forget finding your passion, because – surprise! – you already have it. Also, it doesn’t have to be the thing that pays your bills. This is an excellent article (with a few swearwords) full of links to other awesome articles (I clicked through to about ten).
Life is great here in Quito. I taught a couple of yoga classes to friends of Paulo’s, talked to friends in Vancouver and New York and Toronto, updated my website, recorded a new episode of the podcast, did some work for the Red Tent Sisters, and emailed with my family. Canada elected a new leader! I also ate healthier, did more yoga, took more walks, and just today Paulo and I went to some natural hot springs, which was amazing. I’m forever trying to be gentler with myself, accept how I feel and how things are in every moment, and spend more of my time reading books and less time on social media. I am still finding my footing and figuring out my new routine, but overall things are going really well.
This weekend we have our second yoga in the park meetup and we’re hoping for more attendance. Last week we had one lady, and we were absolutely positively thrilled to have her join us. Wish us luck! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
