Good Enough is the New Perfect

I have yet to teach a yoga class where *something* hasn’t gone wrong. Like the time I forgot to bring a yoga mat to my first private session; when my phone overheated in the sun rendering me unable to play music; when I turned the lights too dim to see my own class plan and had to wing it; when I forgot--twice--to bring the business cards I’d paid for to be rush delivered.


This is not even close to an exhaustive list. With all I have going on in my life besides starting my own business, I often feel like a disorganized mess. And yet, thanks to some incredibly kind testimonials, I know I’m having the impact I hoped to have. Maybe it’s because of my imperfections rather than despite them that people are connecting with me as a teacher.


Dr. Maya Angelou once said “I’ve learned people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”.
