Find your feet.



She Let Go


She let go.
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear.
She let go of the judgments.
She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her.
She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.
Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice.
She didn’t read a book on how to let go.
She didn’t search the scriptures.
She just let go.
She let go of all of the memories that held her back.
She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.
She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go.
She didn’t journal about it.
She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.
She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.
She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.
She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.
She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.
She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.
She didn’t call the prayer line.
She didn’t utter one word.
She just let go.
No one was around when it happened.
There was no applause or congratulations.
No one thanked her or praised her.
No one noticed a thing.
Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort.
There was no struggle.
It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.
It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be.
A small smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less. 
~C. S. Lewis

How do you stay humble? 
How do you remind yourself each day of your place in the world, 
while still pursuing excellence?

small steps.


Sometimes the smallest step in the right directions ends up being the biggest step of your life.

Celebrating Three Years!


inquire + inspire celebrates 3 years today!!!! What started out as a platform to find a moment of inquiry and inspiration has evolved beyond a daily stop from people around the world into a yoga school. It amazes me how one little sparkle of an idea can transform into something so much brighter than I had originally imagined.

Over the year's of writing + reflecting, what's become clear to me is that at the heart of inquire + inspire is the impetus to lead a healthy life. Health isn't just about what you feed your body but what you feed your soul. 

Here's to sparkling from the inside out! Thanks for ALL your love + support + sharing the love.

Gratitude + Grace,
Erica
