One of my favorite childhood books was, and still is, Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. Here is an extract where Pooh Bear is singing a song to his best friend Piglet, who is a very small shy pig....
"Animal so shy and small, dreaming you were bold and tall.
You hesitate, all sensitive, waiting for a chance to live.
Time is swift, it races by, opportunities are born and die.
Still you wait and will not try, a bird with wings who dares not rise and fly.
But that You you want to see, is not you, and will never be.
No one else will ever do, the special things that wait inside of you.
You can be a guiding star, if you make the most of Who you Are.
And the sensitivity that you're now ashamed to see, can be developed even more.
So you can find the hidden doors, to places no one's been before.
And the pride you'll feel inside, is not the kind that makes you fall.
It's the kind that recognizes, the bigness found in being small."
Here's to the unfolding into 2021 together... Join me on the yoga mat, committing to your unfolding life, just as it is, fully embodied in your body, just as it is. There is a quiet perfection in landing in ourselves in pure acceptance and love for the Self, also when there are challenges and imperfections to be met.
