It’s 40 Days Before My 40th Birthday!

by Elsie on December 29, 2011

I meant to post this on December 29th, but alas, as always, motherhood prevailed 😉

In exactly 40 days I’ll be 40 years old!

I figured the 40 days leading up to my birthday are a pretty darn great reason to do a little something special….


What? I’m not quite sure yet 😉

I’ll be posting daily either on Elsie’s Yoga Kula (here) or on my YoGeek.Me blog to pontificate on this auspicious time 😀

I’m sensing the theme of Clarity aka Sauca (and all derivations of such) as a huge focus for me.

My unique offering

I’ve been thinking tons about what is it that I offer that is unique, and how to clarify my offerings, as a teacher and all the other roles in my life.

How does my online presence reflect my highest values and what can I do to clarify (there’s the word!) my mission statement so folks that bump onto my site can immediately and clearly get who I am?

And that’s just the beginning of the questions…for clarity reveals itself as the questions become more and more refined.

Why is it that I push back when it comes to promoting my classes?

Why don’t I actively seek doing workshops or any of the other “yoga teacher” related stuff?

Why is it hard for me to settle in the voice of the yoga community?


Why don’t I update this blog very much?

I think that last question merits it’s own post…I’ve got some juicy thought provoking stuff about that 😉

In this the 40th day before my 40th birthday I’ll begin to clarify my presence.

I hope that you will join me in the process, as you might have some more insights to offer me as I move into this journey 🙂 I do look forward to hearing from you! Leave a comment if the spirit moves you!

Happy Almost 40! I too just turned 40 in Oct. and found it comforting that one of your themes is “clarify”. Mine too:) I’m also discovering the truth in the phrase “life begins at 40” Here’s to a happy birthday, practicing being clear, and celebrating your awesomeness! xo, Cathy

Thank you Cathy!!! Let’s go Clarification!!! I’m thinking you are right. I’m more excited about 40 than I was in my mid to late 30s.

Plus I’m always up for celebrating awesomeness 😀 Happy late birthday to you!

Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?
My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my users would really benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
Please let me know if this ok with you. Cheers!
