Friends, yogis… I have an exciting update!
I’ve taken back my maiden name :) So if you contact me you’ll see that I’m now Rachel Koontz. Don’t worry – it’s me!
I couldn’t be more excited. Change is an important process and days like today remind me how important it is to stay true to myself, and to remember my roots.
I’m feeling really, really grateful for all the loving support in my life. So many people have already said congratulations and I appreciate that so much! I remember when I first started thinking about taking this step, I was nervous and fearful—so worried about what other people would think. Turns out I was making a big deal for nothing. I’ve been hearing from friends old and new, family, and lots of yogis who are happy for me. Thank you all so much – it means the world to me.
Always remember, you are your own best teacher! Namaste and much love.
PS Eventually I’m hoping to do a longer post reflecting on relationships, change and growth… but for today, my mantra is simply to embrace change as it comes along. Some things take longer than expected, and that’s OK. The only thing constant is change. Embrace life and go with the flow! Oh, and my email (aliveinthefire at gmail dot com) has not changed. Always feel free to drop me a line! XO
