Weight Weight Just Love Me – Pairings – Day 26

Some things just naturally go together - you just can't have one without the other.

Some things just naturally go together – you just can’t have one without the other.

The right pairing can amplify each part beyond what it is on its own – whether it be a great food combo like pork chops and applesauce, or a smooth Cabernet with a rich dark chocolate or that special someone who sparks you like no other.

What I am discovering about myself on this challenge to love myself more is how I am amplified and enhanced by the special people I am paired with in my life – where I am called to show up in ways that expand my capacities to love – both them, our work together and myself.  I have realized that while I can and do associate with others in groups,  it is the one on one interactions – these pairings, that bring out the unique characteristics of me.

The flavor of who I am changes based on how I am engaging with others in the moment (who they are and how they are showing up plays a role too).  As a yoga teacher, I’ve found my expanded flexibility exhibited way beyond the yoga mat.  I’ve noticed with this loving myself more habit I am showing up more vibrantly with an enhanced capacity to flex into a space that significantly improves my experience of the pairing.  I’m not sure if others are having the same enriched experience of me as well…..


Kate’s comment: this chameleon nature is a smart adaptive mechanism – I think that others appreciate having the communication experience tailored to them. For example – why would you speak yoga jargon to engineering colleagues, or vice versa? Why would a kindergarten teacher come home and talk to their spouse the same way they spoke to their students? Different forms of communication are needed for different audiences, to have perfect pairings.
