You’re stronger than you think you are.

I have never thought I would be a yoga instructor. When I was a kid I wanted to be a painter, then I have studied Architecture and after I gave up on my piano music studies. I have discovered yoga when my body told me that he couldn’t handle my anxiety crisis anymore.

Starting up a business that I was really passionate about was a dream I had for the past few years when I lost my biggest fears. I didn’t have a good idea, until now… that is actually happening.

Forget about all those myths where you think you are living the dream and you do what you want. I am definitively living my dream but it’s hard. It’s f*ckin´hard to MAKE it happen… Because it’s in your own hands with your own risks. And dreams… Oh man, they exist but they are not like in your dreams. You need to live with the colors the dreams give you, which are not the ones you choose when you are awake. So now Bárbara: paint the best picture with the colors and pencils you have…

Well, If someone asks me if I would do it again? Of course I would! But I would definitely never thought it would be that hard. When you start up a business as an entrepreneur you really challenge yourself to your limits- you seem to forget about the time, the day of the week you are, your friends and family, the life you had behind, and most of all you seem to forget about yourself. “You become the business and the business becomes you”.- someone I truly love tells me all the time.

I hate the word “business” as I hate money but unfortunately even if our aim is to bring people together and doing a beautiful and life-changing project, we need to charge it to pay the bills we owe. Maybe one day this will also change: When people realize we all part of the same and we all need and benefit from each other.

The biggest lesson I have learned here is that our dreams come true but not the way you wanted it to be. But it’s up to you to be strong and make it happen the way you want them to move forward. Life is always changing and you need to be tolerant and most of all accept circumstances…in order not to be frustrated.

And that strength…. Oh that strength you need to really look deep down in yourself even if you think you don’t have it. Because, now, everything really… Depends on you.

And only YOU have the choice. Only now. Only you.

Namaste everyone.

Bárbara
