Letting Go



I’ve written several times about letting go.  I’ve let go of behaviors and attitudes and old books and papers that I’ve had filed away for 10 years.  Recently I let go of one of my Nia classes.  If you’re a reader of my blog, then you know how passionate I am about sharing Nia, so this was not some airy-fairy decision; the decision was made fairly quickly, however, having checked in with my inner Goddess I knew it was the right thing to do.

When I first started teaching Nia, Tuesday night was my biggest class.  For the past year though, Tuesday night has dwindled in attendance…not for the fact that my students have forsaken Nia for some other form of exercise — there is truly none better than Nia — but simply due to the hectic lives that we all lead these days.  (As an aside, I cannot believe it is actually November already…where the heck did this year go?)  

So it with a titch of sadness that I let go of my Tuesday night class.  I was sensing a shift and this is what manifested.  I rolled with it and it feels right.  My last Tuesday class found several of my regular students in attendance to say farewell…it was bittersweet.  We all understood.  We all acknowledged a shift was necessary.  We all celebrated and gave thanks.

And now I get to see what falls into that open space…”sometimes things fall apart in order for other things to fall into place.”

So adios to Tuesday night Nia and welcome the dancing through life with the creative process!!!

  1. I wanted to say, “what a wise, old sage” but I didn’t want you to take the OLD comment too seriously – but I know that age has allowed me the freedom to let go in a new way, sensing that it will be okay and that I am opening up space to grow something new. Thanks for reminding me of this Jill as I am feeling energy shifting, tossing and spinning around me. I will just learn from you to again, let go and move graceful through…

    • Thanks, Kath. We learn from one another, eh? I don’t take the “old” as anything except “experienced” or something like that!!! Thanks for commenting. You are such a good friend…
