Pretty food I ate after a post practice unintentional nap. I must be tired because I want all the carbs.
Some of you that are close to me know that I have had a challenging time maintaining my balance over the last few months. Even though it has been frustrating at times, I'm learning how to prioritize, organize and finding a new way with balance. This time has also shown me what is most important to me, and I'm coming to understand what my own values are.
Beyond school and ashtanga practice, I've decided that it's time to get emotionally and spiritually sober...well, my HP decided, and put me exactly where I needed to be so that I could understand it.
Just over two years ago, I stopped drinking. I thought that was it. And that could have very well been it.
But the thing is, I want more out of my life. I know that my life is asking more of me in every way. I want to grow beyond where I am in every way that I can. If that means seeking guidance and asking for help, that's what I'm doing. If that means dredging through the me I used to be and coming to understand and love that girl, that's what I'm doing. If that means asking for forgiveness, that's what I'm doing. If it means being honest and not hiding any part of me, that's what I'm doing. If that means coming to understand that everything about the me that I am now is imperfectly gd perfect, that is what I'm doing.
It's funny you know, how it has all come together. Everything that I'm focused on right now is connected and even though it's a few different things it's all a part of the same thing. Even though I'm pushing my limits, this is the most peace I've felt in my life. So what if I'm tired. It's worth it.
This peace is worth it all.
