the moment of “letting go”

“Sometimes the storm of life can literally brings us to our knees. Child Pose gives us the opportunity for spiritual surrender, to realize that ‘of myself, I can do nothing, but there is a power in me that can.’ We spend our whole lives resisting the idea of surrender, we see it as a weakness, as giving up. Then suddenly we hit a point where we realize that the moment of “letting go” is not when life is over, it is when life really begins…”

The quote above is given to all the BB instructors during our release 45 tuition…a great sharing from our head teacher. I don’t remember the source or origin of the quote… I am simply touch by the feeling behind every word.

It has come to a point for me…instead of fighting on to hold on permanent class…where I struggle in achieving what I wish in the class, but sometime fail to deliver due to the tiredness of the day… it is better for me to let it go.  Some people think that I am over critical to self. Yet, it does take me a while to get over it every time it happened.  Cheating and tolerating with sub standard is not my option. So, I knew the end is coming.

It was a quiet month (cum busy month)…the load of my work has driven me up to my neck like everyone else. Looking at the rate, I knew I need to be prepared for the closure, and I am right.

It is hard for me to initiate the closure although I am so burn-out, because the thought of unable to teach has truly saddened me. So, when it finally happened, part of me… I am glad…relief that I can retrieve my responsibility for some rest. The other part of me…feeling sad, because I know letting go of this commitment might also lead to a complete closure of this chapter…I know, the season coming to an end.

It was just a short 2 years…a wonderful journey I treasure. So much hard work, a group of people burning with the same passion and the will to do better each time…for the moment of fitness magic, is truly encouraging. It is about self discipline, the determination to work on, lots of practice, the excitement of each release and the love for those who enjoy the journey in the class…is such a joy to be teaching…truly.

I can’t foresee where will I be heading…if I would take on one or two from time to time…or a complete stop due to my overwhelming schedule, I am not sure yet…Whichever it is, I truly wish, those who is with me for the past 2 years, will continue their journey, enjoying this beautiful program in the days to come.

Then suddenly we hit a point where we realize that the moment of “letting go” is not when life is over, it is when life really begins…”

new toys on board!

On top of my busy schedule, here are some things that keep me happy…

Elephant iPOD holder! The bag is in a shape of an elephant, his name is “ElmO”. I don’t usually fancy kiddy stuff but I can’t help to fall for this one. The shape and colours set me to captive. I just take out my wallet and pay for it. Excitedly, I abandon my existing bag and put my iPOD in him. Then, I put ElmO beside my pillow, companying me to sleep.

The first thing I see in the morning? Is ElmO! YEAH! What else I do? I place ElmO in front of my workstation as I am typing this post…

Chili Red coin purse! This is given to me by Anna and it looks so fabulous! Again, I abandon my existing “torn” coin purse (given to me 5 years ago by a friend from Osaka) and change to this lovely purse. Every morning, I carry this purse to the “mamak” for my regular breakfast. I’ll let the purse stand on the table and adore its beauty. I know it sound ridiculous but this is just the way I prefer to be.

A morning class! I am helping a friend to take over her morning class for 2 weeks. Initially, I am wondering if I should take it because I simply love to sleep. Crawling off my comfy bed in the morning, setting my feet on the cold cold floor is definitely a bad idea. But, I took it as a return of favor for her help. Yet, I never regret it. Although I still struggle to wake up 6am in the morning to prepare for a 7am class, but the rewards is never little. Watching the face of the participants in the graceful pose, with the glow of the natural sunlight is really a beautiful sight to begin the day.

Life is awesome with these little beauty around us…isn’t it?
