3 years ago I found myself at what many may call “rock bottom.” I didn’t feel like I had a path, or a future… I was at the lowest weight from my eating disorder, and the panic attacks were happening daily. I injured myself from over exercising and through physiotherapy, yoga was recommended to me. In truth, I thought it was ridiculous. After a few practices, though, I found myself sinking more and more into the practice of it. For the first time ever I was tuning into my body. I was listening to it, hearing what it had to say. My practice became a daily one. A newfound relaxation ritual before bed soon joined in to help me overcome my insomnia… and soon after, that relaxation also paired up with a meditation practice. I found myself aligning more and more with my path. I began not just living, but thriving. I noticed better health, better moods, true happiness and joy furrowing their ways into my life. I noticed smiles and shinier, thicker hair. I found passion and dreams. I studied and learned more and more, as much as I could. I travelled the world a little. I heard stories, did workshops, and listened to what people had to say. Through all of this crazy amazing stuff we can call life, I feel like I learned just enough to share my stories with the world. Why? Well… I hit rock bottom and now I’m here. In love with life, every moment of it… Acknowledging how Divine that really is. I hope I can help you with my guidance. Enjoy my entries! Namaste, friends. xx
