My heart is continually trying to make sense of all that went down over the past year. -
-
Swirling thoughts and memories flood my vision, blurring the edges of reality and fantasy. Now being away from my world for a few months, I can see how things manifest in our brains. Like what we think things are and what we want them to be. -
-
Leaving my home, my best friend and life partner, bears a heavy anchor on my heart. I keep praying the pain will get easier. Some days I just don’t feel it, almost just numb. Others, (like today) there is a sea built up on the inside of my eyelids that push the barriers wide open at 4 am, when they were sealed shut in a restful abyss. -
-
I may never understand love, I suppose we are not intended to. But what I do know, is that love helped us do the right thing we needed to do for the soul of the relationship and ourselves individually. I try to remember this when life feels scary, when my memories feel farther and farther away, and I feel too scared to be in the now. -
-
This is what brought me to Hove, UK. I am following the roots to a sacred oak tree. As I climb them, I appreciate the depths it took to establish such a magnificent foundation. In hopes that the soil I turned can be the bed for one in of the same. My heart is growing. -

Ps. Thanks @yogoskenz for reminding me of this weird circle press, love you sister 😘-

Getting back into the swing of things after spending the weekend frolicking in the country side here. I did pretty well driving on the other side of the road (for the most part 🤪) Things I expected to be hard, weren’t and things like staying in my lane on the motorway was the most challenging. I just kept wanting to put myself on the left side of my lane. 🙈 Meaning I took up two lanes, thankful I had some amazing road dog companionship to help steer my ship. -
-
In other news, some friends and I started a 60 Day challenge of doing INSANITY in the mornings. I’ve never done it and naturally I was all in. 😂 So... Anyone done it? How’d you like it? Or not 🤷🏼‍♀️-

Any who back at work meow, happy Monday beauties! -

Revisited a bit of what I was working on last week (now that I can walk again 😂) -
-
The left side sissy squat is basically my nemesis, but surprisingly it went better than I thought it would. -
-
So I’ve noticed since my legs have gotten stronger with all the different movement modalities I am doing, my handstand alignment is so wonky! Not that it was perfect before, because that’s def not true. My shoulders are leaning so far forward, I think it’s to counter balance the new found weight in zeee’s stems of mine. -
-
So I spent the afternoon, re-learning how to reset my shoulders in handstand. So fun 🙈-
-
Any-who, heading out of town this weekend for a bit of a Christmas adventure. So excited but kinda petrified because I’ll be driving on the other side of the road... wish me luck please!-
-
Have a beautiful weekend lovey’s-

#Erinkellyartsobrietyjourney PART 2-
-
There I was, sitting on the curb after my first AA meeting, talking to this guy, Joe. A stranger of such.
-
Drinking my whiskey, I spoke to him about my hang ups about going back to a meeting. All the judgements and reasons that didn’t quiet make a lot of sense now looking back. But that is the reasoning of a damaged mind.-
-
He listened and then said, “What would be the alternative then, that is if you didn’t come back to a meeting?”-
-
He obviously could see, more than I at the moment, that my way wasn’t exactly working.-
-
He then said, “It doesn’t ALL have to work for you, just take what you want and leave the rest. Honestly, just wait for the message you were meant to hear, what else are you gonna do?”-
-
I stumbled home, thinking of that mans words, he was right. More desperate than I have ever been. The thing was, drugs and alcohol just weren’t hiding my demons the way they used. I would go to any and all lengths each day and night to burry them. I was a “black out” user. Meaning, by night fall, every night, I lost my memory of events. I thought I was hiding my demons, the truth was I just couldn’t remember when they come out. Perhaps bits and pieces of the underlying current of emotions that kept there residue smeared across my heart the next morning. Leading me to the vegetable drawer of the fridge, where I miraculously left a beer for myself.-
-
The cycle, day in day out, varying a little but not much. It was killing me.-
-
I stood in the parking garage of my friends apartment complex that night, I took a look at the empty bottle of beam, I walked it to the trash. To this day, I can still see it there, vividly laced with every emotion that went with it. Fear, despair, mourning of losing my best friend, doubt of if I could do it.-
-
I kept the last, tiny plastic bag for weeks, not touching it, I just kept it in my wallet. Oddly, I felt lonely with the thought of throwing it out. - -
That night, and many more to come, sleep was my enemy. Eating was my nightmare and being conscious with it all, sent me into terrors.-
-
I lost my mind a bit in the process.-

Didn’t get it the first time or the tenth... 💆🏼‍♀️ but finally something clicked and it started making sense. -
-
Sure I got frustrated, sure I asked myself did it matter or was it even worth it. The point for me was not to prove I was capable of rolling backwards into crow more so, that I knew my mind was stopping me from doing so. It was racing from the moment I got up and all my normal tools of shutting “the choir” weren’t effective. -
-
There I found it though, sitting right on the bridge of giving up. A bit exhausted and with a small amount of feeling defeated, a softening in my mind appeared. -
Although I love all the fun postures, weird flows and torturous drills that can be in this practice. I love even more when my body realizes it’s not muscles it needs to do something, it’s the ability of letting go of the idea I have any idea how to do it. -

Happy hump day y’all! I’m pretty sure I will be spending most of my breaks from work tomorrow foam rolling.... thanks PB (@patrickbeach ) for introducing me to Sissy Squats. 🥴-
-
Yeah... I’m already feeling them.... Right side is way better then the left. 9 times out of 10 the left one flung me onto the stove 🥵-
-
Anyone else doing these terribly hard quad crunchers? 🤔🥺-

❤️ @catmeffan with her amazing badassery, I was so stoked to have spent the weekend getting involved mainly with Food and Yoga shenanigans, well it went well with all the laughter. 😂💆🏼‍♀️-
-
I’m not kidding when I say I snorted and shed tears almost every hour.-
- 🚨 SOUND ON if you care to hear my poor decision of flipping onto the counter top. Yeah, I had a feeling it wasn’t going to end well... but 🤷🏼‍♀️ I did it anyway. Judge me, don’t judge me, it’s all good. 😘-

Oh... and well Simba @apupcalledsimba My heart is yours foreva n eva. -

Since I’ve been asked many times lately, Here’s a bit of my sobriety journey.-
-
My story is like most. Alcohol with lots of garnishes of drugs. -
-
Skipping to my rock bottom where enough was enough. I was either going to die that way or try to live. I can’t say I did it alone once I made the decision because I couldn’t. -
-
So, there I was wasted, sitting next to a black trash bag of clothes. I totaled my truck, I was hit by a car on my bike, I left my ex and moved into a man’s house which left me sleeping in an alley. If you would have asked me after I graduated from an Ivy League school if this was the path I would choose for myself, the answer is obviously, no.-
-
For me, in my belief, addiction doesn’t discriminate it can take down anyone. A homeless person to an executive. -
I numbed, for a long line of reasons. I thought if I tried hard enough I could erase the rubbage of my past. It didn’t work. The demons got worse and much louder.-
-
I had a friend, one I knew was fed up with me and my behavior. She told me she couldn’t talk to me anymore until I stopped.-
-
I was wasted, sitting in the alley at 10 o’clock at night, I called her. Something bigger than me made me do it. In a blink of an eye she was there, putting my pieces of my broken bike, the bits of random clothes in her car where she took me to her home with her mom and loving sister with Down syndrome (this applies, I’ll get to it.)-
-
Things get fuzzy and I remember sitting in the bathtub with herbs floating and cold towels wrapped around me. -
-
That next day, I “used” again. I didn’t know how to stop. I couldn’t. So I took myself, a bottle of Jim beam and “Garnishings” (without being inappropriate on this square). -
-
I walked into an AA meeting. I didn’t know what I was doing there. But I had to do something. That something, that one action, changed everything.-
-
Now change to me, is a series of continuous choices, over and over, over a long period of time. -
-
How’d I do it? To be continued...-

I may have done 500 of these gaze shift pike presses this week... and falling about 490 times. -
-
Goal was to pike press with gaze dropped, then keep the gaze as I lowered all the way through to split... which happened I think 3 times. -
-
I absolutely said out loud, “ok one more try” probably 200 times. -
-
Followed by “It’s ok Erin” -
-
Yeah so, there’s that. 😂 Learning is fun. -

Things that have been happening for me in the UK. -
-
The other night it was raining sideways, the wind was swirling to a capacity I’ve never witnessed. I skipped to the beach at 10 pm and as the rain splattered my face, I screamed. Screamed at the top of my lungs towards the sea, it felt so damn good. I sprinted home, the wind took my body threw the ally, and I honestly thought I wasn’t going to stay earthbound. -
-
I gave myself a haircut.. actually each day I shed more of it... not sure if I’m done but I’m pretty happy to feel the lightness. -
-
Considering my legs don’t feel so light! I have been training in a bunch of new modalities. Boxing, hit, cycling, running, sprinting, circuit work, explosive jumps, street funk, all types of dancing... really I just stopped doing what I always do and just started saying YES to everything.-
-
I can feel myself adjusting to the new mass of muscle and boy how a little bit can change so much! I notice that pressing feels different, I’m think over time it will even out but sometimes I legit throw myself over if I engage fully. Lol 😂 it cracks me up just to learn what full force can do, knocks me straight on my arse.-
-
Regardless, I’m enjoying the continuation of trying new things, coming out of my comfort zone as it goes in all aspects of my life. From Relationships to Asana to Fitness to Meditation. -
-
Life is good and walking across the street is getting much easier. -
