17 days and counting…
I’d like to tell you a story, and the reason I want to tell you this story, is to remind you to look out for the stars and to trust 100% in the process…
Rewind to 2012, I was 21, I was living in my first rented property, a cute little 3 bed in Hatfield, I was working at the time in Borehamwood, in this coffee shop that was inside an office building, my Mum got me the job, she used to work as the same, but in Welwyn and every time she tried to describe where she worked I had no idea what she was on about. Until I entered this kind of corporate world…
I was also working as a cleaner in my step Dads children’s nurseries, because at that time, I wanted to go travelling, i’d bought a hilarious little motorhome (in the pic below) and the idea was for my boyfriend at the time and me to travel around Europe.. We did indeed drive to the Isle of White to visit my friends, but then we soon broke up and I sold it off..
But there was some light, because this very smiley Indian man kept coming into the coffee shop, he didn’t talk much, just smiled a lot.. turns out he was the owner of the whole building..
His son approached me and asked me if i’d consider a job on reception and I said i’d love to, before this coffee shop job I was working as a receptionist in a hotel! Literally within days I was transferred to this, still being constructed building in Welwyn, which is known as Orion House, this is where my Mum was working in that coffee shop remember?
There were numerous companies who rented the offices in this building and I had great relations with all of the people there (bar 1!) 1 of the guys who worked in 1 of the offices, was an Indian guy called Vijay, he and his colleague visited the coffee shop daily, his colleague actually invited me to his wedding back home in India, but I didn’t feel brave enough to go alone and no-one was up for coming with me…
Fast forward to 2018…..
I was teaching 2 meditation classes per week at the time and I couldn’t relocate 1 of my sessions to another hall, I felt despair and I didn’t know what to do.. I kept putting it off as you do, hoping it would go away…. and then I was out walking a couple of dogs one day and I asked to myself, as I walked in solitude, what are you going to do Louise? Instaneously, the word India came to my mind..
I found the closest bench and I sat down, I pulled out my phone, and I got onto facebook and I messaged to Vijay from all those years ago and I said, i’m spending Summer in India!
I flew in July 2018 to Delhi where I was welcomed by Vijays colleague, on his moped and he had arranged for us to visit the Taj Mahal with my friend who I met on my stop off in Bahrain…
My reason for choosing India over and above anywhere in the world, was Yoga and I didn’t want to learn it anywhere but where it all started..
Fast forward to Summer 2019…
In June I went to France, on a Yoga retreat, I couldn’t help but notice when I sat down on my Yoga mat, the words I saw ‘Yoga Matters’ this was actually the brand of equipment and I just thought to myself, if I ever start to teach Yoga one day, this is the company I would love to buy from, as it is a constant reminder, that ‘Yoga Matters’..
I cannot believe I am saying this, but 2 months on from that French retreat and as the reality gets a little closer, I have just in fact placed an order for all of the Yoga equipment with ‘Yoga Matters’ in preparation for me to teach Yoga classes…….
So what is the moral of the story? When you have these moments of ”what is life?” ”who am I?” ”what’s my purpose?” “Why me?” You’ve just got to trust the process and go with the flow…. Everything will work out as it is supposed to. These past 7 years have been a whirlwind and I couldn’t have imagined all that i’d go through if I tried, but what I have done is learned and experienced so much, which I can now use as knowledge to not only help me, but help others too.. One of my favourite life qoutes; “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”…
