Carol-the-Lionhearted came to my yoga class the other day. As I was introducing her to a friend, I mentioned that she had been my walking buddy for years and that it was amazing, because...
Carol always shows up.
As we had breakfast afterward we were talking and Carol wisely said: "I have to show up for myself."
And I've been thinking about that. I do have to show up for myself. We can look outside ourselves for people to show up for us--and when they do it is awesome. But above all, we have to show up for ourselves.
My mantra for this week: show up.
