“You don’t have to be great to start, you just have to start to be great.”  -Zig Ziglar

I think of myself as an action oriented, get’er done kinda girl, but recently I realized I was procrastinating on a certain special dream in my life, telling myself:

“This is too hard.”

“I don’t know what I am doing”

“I’ve missed the boat.”

These were just my excuses to stay in my comfort zone and to avoid my fear of failure and judgment from others. Yikes!

Yoga reminds us to simply step to the top of our mat, and take a deep breath – to allow that to be our first step in our practice.

So I take a deep breath and metaphorically step to the top of the mat in my life. I know the ground will hold me. I know I have all I need within me. I know I have my own amazing strength AND wonderful support.

So I take the first step. And then the next step is revealed, and I keep going…and wonder why I waited so darn long 🙂

What action are you ready to take in your life?


Take that first step.

Ask for help.

And know that you are on this planet to constantly grow and dance. Take action!

Much love,

Shasta  + Your Balanced Life Yoga Family
