This Too Shall Pass

Sometimes we hear exactly what we need at just the right time. This evening in yoga class the teacher said exactly what I have needed to be reminded of all week: “This too shall pass.” The recent heat wave has been making me miserable. My emotions have been running wild for a variety of reasons, some justifiably good, others just my inner three year old diva making an appearance. I feel like I am giving way more than I am receiving right now and it is leaving me grumpy and angry with my friends who are usually quite giving but just happen to all be going through periods of extra needage and minimal giveage at the moment. This too shall pass. Weather, emotions, giving, and receiving are all fleeting. They feel intense in the moment, but we soon forget and move on when they have passed.

I teach yoga, write, and edit. I live in a Brooklyn neighborhood that is changing faster than I can, or care to, keep up with. Manhattan still beckons me to her island a few subways stops away, reminding me of when I lived amongst her daily hustle and bustle.
