Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    You're a single mom now, go get a real job like every other single mom who sacrifices herself.

  • How I responded:

    I got very still and practiced what I teach. I took deep breaths back into my own self. I asked myself why I wanted to become a yoga teacher/mentor. I realized the need in me to do that was greater than the need to make sense to others about my choices.

  • When I chose to create my own business I had no savings and financial backing. I was hustling to make ends meet, teaching a lot, doing odd jobs, and trading services.
