I’ve never felt truly satisfied with the name of my business, knowing it was too long and didn’t quite define me.
This year in itself has been a life-altering year. I have attended 10 funerals, I spoke at three of them, and I lost my dog of 15 years, my horse of 12, and my marriage of 5.
I have a tendency to try to find the lesson in moments like these, and what I found are Patience and Detachment.
To say I want a fresh start with the new year would be a vast understatement!
So I’m detaching from the fire water yoga and the label that implies alcohol.
I want a label that is closer to my own heart, spelling out
“grace & grit.”
Anyone who knows me well will surely find the humor and the truth of this label.
From rodeo cowgirl to soul searching yoga instructor—I seem to be forever growing and changing, always searching for something more. Trying to find the balance in all things: Grace & Grit reveals my true self. A West Texas Woman, I am tough but beautiful—all in my own way.
West Texas, a hard, rigid land filled with cacti and dust. While some have a hard time seeing the beauty in this place with so much grit, if you have ever seen a West Texas sunset, you know it holds a space for the soul that can be untethered.
The year that I’ve had, the person that I am, and the place that I call Home are all made up of a little grace and grit.
So with the turning of the new year,
The Fire Water Yoga will be and for ever more...
