lauragrace_ "Sadness keeps you soft and flexible.
It reminds you, when you have forgotten, 
of the beautiful fragility underneath all things.
In the softness of the heart lies its capacity to love."---- I spent so much time in the beginning of my yoga journey building up walls and shutting people out of my life thinking that it would make me a stronger person in the end. I've come to realize that I can no longer run from the darkness in myself and the more I embrace my weaknesses, my fears, and my sorrows, the more compassion I am able to feel. I've learned to sit with my sadness, and welcome it. Flood my wounded and sore parts with light and love, and I finally feel alive. 6h

Love. 
Fess up when you fuck up. 
Breathe more deeply. 
Love more fully.
That’s it.” 23h

lauragrace_ “The fact is, the sun does not always shine. Gentle breezes can grow into tornadoes. Too much rain can lead to flood, and too much sunshine causes the drought. Life is life – it is what it is. It offers no certainties, except that it will go on with our without you. The sun will rise and set every day. Though clouds obscure your perception and you do not see it coming up and going down, it will do so nonetheless. So do the seasons follow their unerring cycle, waiting for no one or nothing. The seasons turn into years and the years into ages. Neither waiting nor caring if you join them, but never denying your choice to do so. They will go, and so must you because your journey is waiting. And in your journey you will learn reality and balance.” 5d

lauragrace_ It's been a long week of conquering fears, both on AND off my mat. Ending off with my first handstand press. and all I've done differently is continue to break my heart wide open and TRUST. I've learned to drop expectations in all aspects of my life and I'm continuing to be amazed every day. 1w

lauragrace_ I know there are layers. Dimensions. Collections of ancient wisdom. Roads. Stories on stories on stories. Core needs. Humanness. This is where I light up. This is where I thrive. You can't be caged in a pool for long. Not when you're someone who wants oceans. 1w

lauragrace_ But love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need. 2w

lauragrace_ One has to be alone, under the sky,
Before everything falls into place and one finds
his or her own place in the midst of it all.
We have to have the humility to realize ourselves as part of nature.
