Usually when I write my blog prompts I’m inspired by something, I write the prompt down, and I immediately take a picture to use in the post...but several weeks ago the blog post I had written had been one inspired by a walk with a friend, so I hadn’t gotten a picture of the inspiration while walking.
So off I went on my way home from an errand, into the park, to get a particular picture of a particular split in the trail.
I got my picture, and, as I didn’t have anything else I needed to be doing, I proceeded to sit on a log for a while….listening to the birds, listening to Rock Creek below me, to the trickle of a stream that was right next to me….just enjoying a beautiful afternoon with the sunlight peeking through the trees and the world bright green around me.
As I sat there, I was suddenly struck with a thought. I have liked every version of Krista before this one, and...as I’m sure you can relate...there have been many versions of Krista before this one. I’ve liked them all. But this version of Krista, this one who has been showing up in honesty and has been doing hard work on herself this past year even when it’s been scary, the one who has been loving the people around her deeply even when it’s hard, and simultaneously loving herself deeply, as I was sitting on that log I realized I like this version of Krista best of all.
My dear friends, I hope you can love every version of yourself….no matter where you are on this journey through life. And I hope you can see and celebrate the different versions of yourself in this moment.
I hope you have an amazing week dear friends.
Krista is a yoga and fitness instructor based in Washington DC. She has an online studio with all sorts of different class types!
