Wrapping up my Bali experience

It’s over! What a trip it’s been. I am exhausted right now, understandably because Bali is 15 hours ahead of Redding, so I’m used to being asleep when I’m awake. It kind of hurts, to tell the truth, how discombobulated I feel. I was hoping to not sleep during the day so that I could reset myself, but I took a 2 hour nap yesterday and probably will do something similar today. I’ve slept for about 4 hours each night since returning. 😦

I went a little long on the video but with it being the last one, I wanted to share more of my experience and thank you for coming with me! I am still processing what happened during the 25 days in Bali. I think I will be forever processing, actually, and I will write more here about my revelations here in the future. I haven’t yet settled back in Redding life. I think that is partially why I haven’t been sleeping straight through the night either. I’m glad I took 4 days after the trip to explore Bali, relax, and reintegrate into more of a “normal” life. Four plus hours of yoga a day, on a tropical island, with no concerns other than classwork and which buffet food item to eat isn’t my normal and I’ve been doing that for 3 straight weeks from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm nearly every day. It was glorious. Now, I get to reintegrate into my normal life, and, as a new person. I am thankful for grace. Thankful that my friends, my family, my students, and my God give it to me, and that I am really learning to give it to myself. I am perfect. That is probably the biggest thing I learned while at the yoga training: that no matter how much growth I get to do, no matter how many silly mistakes I make, no matter if I offend people, no matter how happy or sad I make myself or others, I am perfect. This will be something I meditate on for years to come. I hope that you know how perfect you are as well. Just. As. You. Are. You and I couldn’t be any more perfect! Right here, right now, God doesn’t make junk. How wonderful. How mysterious. How magnificent. You and I are whole. Oh the complexity of it!!! And the simplicity.

I think I’m going to take that nap now. Bless you. Thank you. See you soon.

xoxo

  1. Really enjoyed travelling with you via blog to Bali! Its got to be a hard readjustment after being in such a beautiful place, doing lots of Yoga. I look forward to experiencing more SUP-yoga, and maybe even some ‘normal’ yoga. If my inflexible body can (attempt to) do Yoga, anyone can! I look forward to challenging you with my ineptness! We ARE perfect and through Him can do anything! Thank you for the reminder!

    Get some well deserved rest and may God restore and rejuvenate you in the days ahead. Merry Christmas!!

  3. I’m impressed, I must say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and enintratnieg, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the problem is something that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I’m very joyful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.
