New year’s inspiration: ‘When I fall’

Let me fall
Let me climb
There’s a moment when fear
And dream must collide

Someone I am
Is waiting for courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won’t heed your warnings
I won’t hear them

Let me fall
If I fall
Though the phoenix
May or may not rise

I will dance so freely
Holding on to no one
You can hold me only
If you too will fall
Away from all these useless fears
And shame

Someone I am
Is waiting for my courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won’t heed your warning
I won’t hear

Let me fall
If I fall
There’s no reason
To miss this one chance
This perfect moment
Just let me fall

These beautiful words were read to me by Johan Noorloos during savasana. They’re actually lyrics of a Cirque de soleil-song by Josh Groban. I was very moved by them and on the brink of 2018 they got me thinking about my intentions for 2019. I hope that in the coming year I’ll be able to let myself fall and let go of even more that doesn’t serve me any longer. I hope to be strong enough to let go of negative thinking patterns and embrace the unknown. To seize the moment and meet the courageous me who’s there to catch me.

May 2019 be the year in which we all dare to fall and meet our courageous selves. May it be a year full of love, family and friendship. And a year full of yoga of course!

Until next year.

Love,

Jantine
