I've spent a lot of time over the years searching for quotes that move me. I seek them out in hopes of finding inspiration for myself, my loved ones, and of course, to share in my classes. I love encountering words that activate something deep within me when I take them in and allow them to seep into my soul. Words have power and when they are used for good, they can encourage, motivate, and even energize our day. If we allow them to, words can truly inspire our lives and shed light in the darkest corners of our being.
That is what this quote does for me. I've come across it many times while searching and each time I read it, it's like I am discovering it for the very first time. These specific words written by Mary Oliver make me think, feel, and always spark something within me. This something that is sparked causes me to want to move my body. I literally want to break out in a dance or turn on some funky music, jump on my yoga mat, and move from pose to pose to pose. For me, this quote reminds me of the fact that yes, I only have this ONE, WILD, & PRECIOUS life and that I have a desire to actually and authentically live it. I want to feel and breathe my way into my body so that I can experience and uncover the joy that I know is inside of me just waiting for recognition.
So, let me ask you...
What do you plan to do with this ONE, WILD, & PRECIOUS life of yours?
