Yes. Yogis can eat cows too

This yoga teacher training has been an interesting journey for me so far. We’re half way through, having our break between sessions, so an apt moment to reflect.

I’m definitely feeling a bit of the ‘black sheep’ vibe. Maybe from the various levels of eating-habit-related madness, all the crying (I’m not making this up) and the fact that, being as pale as they come, I’m the one covered in factor Inuit sitting in the shade.

Maybe I am a black sheep. Maybe it’s in my head. Either way, I think it’s about personal acceptance and I’ve decided to embrace my differences, rather than push them down. I’m gonna eat chocolate in front of people from now on, instead of making sure no vegans are around; I’m going to speak up when I think we’re talking bullsh*t; and I’m going to work to be the best yoga teacher I can be. This is why I’m here, after all.

Let’s all just make sure we’re not doing something just to fit in, and make all our actions come from a place of happiness. That’s the point of it all, at the end of the day.
