Transitioning with Thanks
This is my last post with Beginner's Mind.
Change has always both scared the hell out of me and thrilled me right down to the mula bandha, to put it politely.
But with age, with experience, and I swear with yoga practice, I'm beginning to love the feeling that comes with letting go and walking through the next door.
My guess is that saying thank you is one of the keys to good transitions.
Thanks, first, to Yogajournal.com and all of the lovely editors who offered me a chance to have this 18-month conversation with you. As readers, we have no idea how much work goes into such a massive and excellent website. To create and nurture such a thing, and to do it with good hearts, humor, and professionalism is off-the-mat yoga at its best.
Thanks, next, to yoga for being such a fabulous topic of conversation, not to mention a superb window through which to explore ourselves and our place in this mysterious world.
Thanks, most importantly, to you. Many, many of you have become friends. Many of you might as well have written these posts, given all the compelling and thoughtful notes you sent this way. On occasion, some of you objected to what I wrote. Thanks for caring enough to do so. All of you have been excellent teachers.
It's been a pleasure.
(And it's not like I'm dead. You can still reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at Dr.Kristin Shepherd on Facebook. Hope you do.)
Thanks again for the conversation.
Lots of love and joy,
