They say consistency is the key to a successful blog. Post often and post regularly and people will read. Well…I’ve been the opposite of consistent these days and I certainly have not been posting often!
We’ve been open just over a month now and oh my gosh…what an amazing month it it has been! I feel blessed every single day. I had no real idea of whether or not people would actually come when we opened our doors. I mean, the online support was absolutely incredible. Not a day went by that I didn’t receive a phone call or an email or a text message wishing us well…sending good vibes…praying for us…
But the question was…how many people will not only be supportive but will actual support us? So many of you got to watch the drama unfold as we built, discovered the terrible job that was done, destroyed and re-built again. So many of you were supportive and interested. So many of you saw the struggle. And so many of you let us know you were thinking about us.
And finally we opened. 6:00am on a Monday morning (June 23, 2014 to be exact). And you were here (as my son said as soon as the studio door closed: “Ok. I’m just gonna say it. A lot more people get up at 5:00 in the morning to do yoga than I thought would!”). You were here all day. You kept coming back. Day after day. And then your introductory offers started ending. And you are still here. You are supporting us. You are still sending us positive vibes. You are still wishing us well. And many of you are still praying for us (please don’t stop…if you pray, we are grateful to be included).
It’s been quite a month…and we are blessed. So many questions have been answered. We’ve learned a LOT and we continue to learn each day. We’ve met the most amazing people! We’re recognizing faces….talking yoga…talking life…drinking tea….listening to music…becoming friends. And we appreciate you so much!!
At the end of our first day, I wrote in my journal: “Words cannot begin to describe how I am feeling right now. Or maybe they can but I just don’t have the talent as a writer to put the right ones in the right order.” Well…that’s what’s happening to me right now. Maybe because it’s 6:00am and I’m still sleepy. But honestly, I think it’s because, at least in the English language, there are no words to describe this. So I will end with one word and hope you take it completely to heart:
