a decade of devotion

Posted: 19 January, 2017 By Blog


I quit my job. The kind of job that was a 'secure income', a promising career in corporate business and a steady 40-hour work week Monday to Friday. The kind of job that you are not supposed to quit. 

Yet in 2006, I did quit my 6 year career. I had to. 
I was physically unwell. Often and a lot. I was unsatisfied at heart. 
I left and I took a year to recover my well-being and to start my own company. A change of direction to make a living doing something that I felt was truly exciting. Practicing and teaching the path of Yoga. 

Today, 10 years later, I work nearly all weekends, I work often and sometimes a lot and every holiday I take partly involves work in some form or other. I playfully call them work-cations. I love it all.

Many have asked and I have never even once during these 10 years regretted this decision. Not even for a second. Words of regret have not escaped my lips on this matter, nor has the thought of regret even entered my head. This surprises me. At the time I had no knowing on how I would make things work out in this new life, and I could have never predicted the experiences and opportunities the past decade opened up to support what I had chosen. It has been and is utterly extraordinary to me.

I believe that we all have a very unique purpose in life. In finding and living that purpose we feel whole. I feel it daily. Naturally I have had many challenging experiences personally and professionally over the last 10 years and the way I work and live has changed over time and different phases of this decade. I have also not always felt super well in health or wealth or work. There have been months when I could not take out a salary either. 

The one thing that has not changed through-out is a feeling of freedom in my heart. I consider myself most fortunate to have found this and to share with others how to find this. Daily does it.

Every month this year to come, I will be sharing with you a little piece of this decade of devotion to my heART and all the many wonderful people and wonder-filled circumstances that have contributed and created this story. I did not do this alone. I have many to mention and thank and will be doing so month by month in these newsletters this year.

There will be new beginnings this year and there will be a celebratory party. You are invited. Stay tuned for further updates here.

A very happy New Year to you all!
Mithila

What God Wants

This months Newsletter article:

''What God wants is so not what I had in mind when I left the city and moved to the countryside to write books, make art and create online yoga courses in 2018. But that is what Expansion will do to you. You will not know what will become of you once you are on that new platform of frequency. You have no idea who you really are in that new timeline.

Have you asked yourself lately: what does God want from me?
I daresay it is an adventurous question.
