Sometimes you run into twists and turns while traveling or in life in general. If it's not something that threatens your existence, it's worth trying to think of these twists as plot devices to spice up the story of your life.

#goodmorning and #merrychristmas love you all my friends and family, may the Lord prosper you in the coming year… And all those other shiny #platitudes we all wish for.

MOST RECENT

Nearly all of the #platitudes that I was force-fed during my #yoga training and vulnerable early years as a teacher and guide were actually emotionally-shaming, and caused me a great deal of personal harm. They were delivered into my suffering heart and mind that were freshly cracked open in pain and beginning the deeper work of intense healing from a life of emotional neglect & its effects. They helped me to move in a better direction on the surface, but they also shamed me for hurting, told me it was wrong to be different, and that if I didn't have everything that I worked hard for with my entire heart, mind, body, and soul, that it was surely my own fault entirely, because I somehow still didn't get it right. .
.
.
Of all the platitudes dished out over the years, this last idea penetrated the deepest, and literally caused me emotional trauma in conjunction with some very devastating interpersonal experiences. The idea that I just wasn't manifesting well enough, and that was why I was treated poorly by others, although I love and respect myself, hold others to healthy & mature standards, conduct myself with integrity, and live a life that I am proud of and feel is a #reflection of my ever-evolving best self, and in spite of managing to trust and open my heart fully even though I faced one awful experience after another.. I was able to believe in the good in others even though I was given one gut-wrenching garbage experience after another. And I find that while the experiences themselves have given me just cause to be more careful, I STILL find I can open my heart entirely and offer my trust to those I deem worthy, and I can allow them to tarnish it or enforce it on their own. I'm a living miracle, & I was taught that it was still my fault when others made choices that harmed me. .

The part that truly #traumatized me was the platitude that if I was "ready" for it I would have it, therefore placing the #responsibility for other people's immaturity and personal choices on ME. Thus it's MY fault, reinforcing my childhood #trauma of being emotionally neglected... I call TOTAL BULLSHIT! Stand in your power, too, you are my responsible for YOU!!! .
More to come.

No respect for how tired my arms are for hanging onto this #shitshow for over 3 decades. Just throw them empty #platitudes at me which have been #deadfuckingwrong since forever. Is my 30s too late to ask my parents to #abort me?

This world would be so damn lovely if we simply started LISTENING and directing people back home to themselves. We attack and shame others because of our need for constant validation. When we don’t see our stories reflected back in the person standing in front of us, our insecurities come pouring out and spilling out all over the floor into a giant mess

and then we begin the dehumanizing . . .
And mostly it is people who haven’t explored their own authenticity and have always played it safe, by all those damn rules.
I don’t know about you but I don’t want to fall in line.
I want to fall in LOVE.

I don’t need you to look like me, to act like me, to have a life like me in order for me to love you. I will love you more if you emanate AUTHENTICITY,

NOT crazy regurgitated platitudes and paradigms that bore me endlessly

I live with this radiant little boy and he came to shatter all those paradigms we’ve been creating our lives around. We can try and try as hard as we may to shove him into our me shaped boxes but he’s never gonna do it our way.
He doesn’t care about your labels, your religions, your politics, your rules . . . In fact he has no words, NONE . . .

But one thing is for damn sure - This boy knows how to radiate LOVE

You won't hear that from me. You will hear: "Uch, that sounds terrible/frustrating/annoying/maddening/upsetting. Thank you for talking about it with me. How can I support you in this?" Created by the brilliant @emilymcdowell_

Life a mystery
You're struggling to understand
You're treading The Path... In quest of The Way; The Truth
The Path IS Enlightenment . .

She left at daybreak... Where is heaven on earth now?
Evaporated!
As transient as morning mist.
Life goes on and on and on... . .

7.15.2017 "When written in Chinese the word “crisis” is composed of two characters – one represents danger and the other represents opportunity.” –John F. Kennedy, address, 12 April 1959. Got my clang banged again and with a rebel yell I swung another kettle bell. As I continue to subconsciously hold myself back in other areas, I believe if I push forward enough here, I may be able to sweat out my family's history of mental health issues. Perhaps one day on the treadmill, I will tap into the speed force and alter traumatic timelines and mournful memories. Taking care of an unpredictably sick relative can be trying - it is partly a relief when I make it through a workout that seemed like nothing could be tougher. All things can subside in degrees - just as no one can lift the weights for you, it's rough and easier said than done, but a relief to realize that often the ball is in your court to break an unhealthy cycle. If you took all the worry in predicting the worst and turned it on the inverse, you might see through the overcast of doom and bench press the moon. As you get what you give, a determined trial can feel like just that - some kind of test of will. Without effort, there is now growth. You must not lower yourself to being a person you don't like. Pump through the pain as you raise high, but also learn to let things go, slowly and without a crash. Think big, don't be afraid to get your hands dirty, and avoid the 'clean and jerks' of the world whenever possible. #Platitudes 'N' #attitude. #fitspo #fitness #fitspiration #blackandwhite #kettlebell #headphones #punk #goth #newwave #mentalhealth #inspiration #motivation #motleycrue #tshirt #gym #gymselfie #selfie #selfienation #allbymyselfie #selfienation #inspirationalquotes #johnfkennedy

I am sure you know
It's easy to destroy love
Once gone it has gone
Building love anew, fresh heart
Un nouvel amour parfait . .

I do love you babe
That does not mean I like you
Superficially
That visual heart you wear
A token for a show off
