In January I set an intention to be more active on social media and connect with my students on a personal level.
If you've followed me on social media (Instagram and Facebook) you know I've been much more active. Last year, the only time I posted on social media was to advertise my upcoming events and classes. My online presence was more advertising than sharing. I've always had a difficult time sharing and opening up to people unless I'm sure of them. Thus far, this year has been about vulnerability. Opening up to others requires one to be vulnerable and that can be scary. I'm learning that it's ok to be vulnerable. The more I open up to people, the more I learn about myself and my experiences in the world.
You hear me say this all the time...
"We all share the same experience. My experience is your experience. Your experience is my experience. Without you, I'm unable to have the experience I'm currently having. Without me, neither are you." This is true.
I started blogging this year opening up about lifestyle and yoga practice because I want to share more with my students. Since I began sharing I've had meaningful responses and connections with others. Now I realize if I share my experiences and knowledge with the world the abler I can help others create new experiences.
Initially, my intention was to help grow my business and connect more with my students. I didn't recognize how the intention would help me connect with myself on a deeper level nor how much I would grow.
