When faced with a hateful comment today, I had to choose between two paths: react or remove, engage or delete. It wasn't easy for me. I wanted to explain and defend. I considered rallying the troops and beginning an online war. But I chose not to. Not because my position is untenable or indefensible, but because you can't win someone over who is already, judge, jury and conviction of your case. Or, in other words, once someone has literally lost it on you or about you, they've crossed the line into crazy at best and abusive at worst. This comment was so hateful, racist, and sexist that I'm not going to share what was said. It was extreme so I actually deleted it, which I don't normally do. At first I thought it might be a joke or a computer generated troll. But it was real. And I'm still coming to terms with the amount of vitriol spewed at me by a real person. I'm a real person over here too. I read my comments, check my messages and I'm sensitive. I'm much stronger than I used to be, but nasty comments, especially personally directed somewhat violent ones bother me. Just the idea that someone out there has that much anger and hate in them that they decide to type it out in such flamboyant display breaks my heart a little. Somewhere inside I believe we are all good people, with good hearts, capable of love and redemption and atonement. Even the haters I believe secretly want to love. I believe in the inalienable foundation of truth and that no matter how long it takes sooner or later all that is in darkness comes to light. But what I don't feel the need to do anymore is negotiate my worthiness on terms that are stacked against me. I reject the premises of hateful speech and refuse to engage. I break the chains of needing to be good enough in someone else's eyes. I'm me. If you don't like me, just unfollow. I'll be over here doing my thing. You'll be where you are doing your thing. We're good. Peace be with us both. 🙏

As humans, we are programmed to move towards pleasure and away from discomfort. And so when we aren't happy, aren't fulfilled, aren't comfortable, our habitual reaction is just to leave. And while leaving is sometimes the wise choice, often staying in the discomfort is where the lesson unfolds. Transformation and change are rarely pain free processes. Often our best growing occurs in the midst of tremendous suffering and heart ache. There are many ways the heart cracks open, sometimes we invite the opening and sometimes the opening occurs on its own. Either way, if we stay with it and watch the layers peel away, we can bear witness to a most Holy invitation to visit a deeper personal place. ✨🙏🏼

Identify your talents and find the way to serve others by using them.

"Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they're meant to be."

Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
An anti-social pessimist but usually I don't mess with this
And I know you mean only the best and your intentions aren't to bother me but honestly I'd rather be
Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message
And we'll discuss our big dreams
How we plan to take over the planet
So pardon my manners, I hope you'll understand it

I'm working on my first full sequence that will peak at #pinchamayurasana and the greatest advice I got was "practice the pose cold - whatever is tight or miserable is what needs to be strong, open and warm so focus the class around that". Welp everything was tight when I tried this morning so looks like I'll be working the whole bod! 😅
Any tips for awesome classes you took or flows you've done that prepared you well for this particular pose?! -----------

When you lie down to take a 20 minute nap after supper and wake up 2 hours later ... allergies have been acting up (yay may 🙃🙃) and my body told me that sleep is the only way it's gonna deal with it!
I've been adding camel into my flows more and more often lately - love the heart opener from this one 💗💕

I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom - how great is that?!? #transformationtuesday #yoga #acro #acroyoga #acroaddict #yogini #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #myyogalife #yogalove #yoga #asana #balance #yogagram #yogagirl #igyoga #yogalove #flexibility #yogisofinstagram #yogaflow #fitness #fit #counterbalance #trust #yogajunkie #yogi #yogagirl #motivation #exercise #healthy

Take a road trip and enjoy the journey! Life's too short to sweat the small stuff - believe that all things happen for a reason. #bulletproof #happiness
