How times have changed, I wouldn't have it any other way to spend my birthday doing Yoga, rewind back and that wouldn't of crossed my mind. I've had my Yoga "moments" but they were usually because of outside forces or have to type of sessions. I can't even explain the effect Yoga has had on my body, my mind and my soul this time around and I don't see it ending anytime soon.
I bought a monthly membership last year November, went some months a lot and some not so much. In January I ended up taking a class taught by Nikki called Warm Foundation and that ladies and gents was when I fell in love with Yoga. If you know me I'm all about good vibes, unreal energy and just human connection and that's hard to find nowadays, I feel a lot of people just do things for the money or status. Not Nikki, even though it was pretty big classes, she made you feel like you were the only one and cared to see you get better physically and mentally. That hits deep, I remember making IG stories about how amazing the class was because she taught it in a way I've never experienced and just hit my heart and soul. I also remember saying to myself, somehow someway this chick needs to be a part of my life other than that foundation class, well that happened when Covid hit and it's been such a blessing getting to know her and build a friendship as well as still doing yoga.
I've been a part of our community Harmony House Yogis since April, a community that just brightens my days because we are a diverse group who has come together in hard times to support eachother, spread kindness, share ourselves and motivate each other to be the best we can be. We were all strangers, well most of us to each other and now we have built something that is more than money could ever buy. SOO thankful, grateful and blessed to be spending my birthday, days and nights with such wonderful human beings who make me feel so loved and cared for. A group of humans who actually want the best for you and will cheer you on and be a support system.
Since April I have been doing about 8 - 14 classes a week!!! WHAT ? YAAAA never in my wildest dream would I ever think of doing that and actually ENJOY it. For people who know me, you know for years now I have been doing SO much self growth and development because 5 or so years ago I was insecure, depressed and just did things for the wrong reasons. So here I am thinking I'm pretty good at going through my emotions, letting go and not let some things get to me... WELL turns out I wasn't and figured out a whole lot more about myself and hit another growth level. That shit is HARD, to be solely with yourself and just feel BUT it's the greatest feeling and weight off your shoulders to dig deep and release that energy. I'm pretty sure I cried litres of tears which then made my stye worse that I had to get it surgically removed, never felt better. LOL
In all honestly though the situations I was in, I never thought that would of happened, it HURT my heart and soul to be treated like that and at first I just put it under the rug (in my mind thinking I was good), no don't put emotions under the rug, so instead of tears here and there, litres came out for a few days. This year has been difficult but it's been the best year for my internal growth and becoming who I am suppose to be and I wouldn't change anything about it even though my heart got hit in the cross fire. Hardship and struggle make you that much stronger and if you decide to dig into what you are really feeling and release that energy, mannnnnnnnn that's a whole new level of magic. Words honestly can't explain the feeling of getting to the root and releasing that stuck energy. It's crazy because most people don't even realize all that is stuck inside, for years and years keep doing the same thing. Heal my friends open up that stuck energy, it SUCKS sometimes but it is also the most rewarding feeling ever, your life will change for the better. I will forever dig and grow, the best days are yet to come.
31 never felt so good and my birthday wish for everyone is to dig into yourself, heal yourself and spread as much LOVE, KINDNESS and GOOD VIBES out there, &&&&& MOST IMPORTANTLY be your TRUE SELF because YOU are absolutely BEAUTIFUL, no matter what.
From my heart to yours,
Beauty, why do we let people and materials change our beauty?
