A while back, I saw a flyer for Yoga Instructor Training. I later thought more deeply about it and became inspired to pursue it. I realize that I don't quite think act or feel like a yoga instructor, but since the semester won't start for a few months, I have some time to switch gears. I still honor the fighter and warrior, but in a different way. I left a message and finally got a call back. It was a wonderful conversation and I am so excited about taking some classes!
I also finally called the number I found for Southern Hospitality, and she feeds the homeless. What a great person to connect with.

Nearness to Allah is bliss, and distance from Him is agony. So I can fight for bliss, fight for nearness and oppose all the forces that try to separate us. The most difficult battle is within. I can remember that we're all fighting a battle, and we're all hurting, to repel evil with good, and that we have no enemies. We get defensive when we forget Allah. He teaches us through ease and hardship, and I must put my trust in Him, to put me where I need to be, and to show me the work to be done for unity and healing. I must believe in my ability to heal myself and to guide others to find that for themselves. We flourish when we reach for the sun, not when we run from the clouds.

Kamal sent me a folder full of papers from college, including the Career Planning Class I was taking when 9/11 happened. I had forgotten how much I had put into the class, and out of it. The Meyers Briggs personality test was most interesting. The career choices were interesting as well. I am not so sure if college is the way there. I do love the idea of Warren Wilson, the place, the people, it does come together so nicely, however, I may be able to fulfill all that without college, one important lesson college taught me.
I also realized how much fear had shaped so many choices between then and now, and all the habits that keep me from realizing my full potential. I am the feather that has softly landed. I have all the answers in me from my intuition and my experiences. Now living each day as my last, and as a new fresh start, I have more hope and sharper vision.
