Working within the frame of your body when practicing Pilates and its focus on staying in the “box,” is a great metaphor for your life.
When you create boundaries for yourself, you’ve created an unseen frame and also an awareness that’s constantly being tested as both supportive and unsupportive people walk with you on your life path.
Sometimes though, a wolf can arrive in the most beautifully designed sheep’s clothing and before you know what happened, this wolf has taken a bite out of your kindness and generosity. It isn’t the end of the world if someone takes advantage of you, but as your awareness grows, you’ll experience fewer wolf encounters.
As another year comes to a close, it’s a perfect time to reinforce your efforts in cultivating positive and trustworthy people who are also traveling an upward path. I wish you all a very happy New Year and may 2013 open you in new and surprising ways.
