β€œTrue yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.” #humpdayhearts #yogaeverydamnday

First I'd like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love on my last post. It really means so much to me and it was so sweet to hear from those that reached out. Sobriety is something that I take day by day and processing the emotions that come up can be excruciatingly difficult but being sober is worth it. ------------------------------------------
Second I wanted to share something that came up a few years ago that involved the death of a good friend of mine. We were addicts together and enabled each other to use. When I was nineteen he came to my house after years of not speaking and I was trying to stay away from hard drugs at that time. I told him to get off my property and called the police. When I was twenty his body was found. For a long time I had overwhelming guilt and he haunted me in my dreams. I still think about this person on a daily basis but the guilt isn't there in the same way. Deep down I know that we would've relapsed together, even though I relapsed shortly after he had come to see me. What I do wish I could've done that night was show sympathy. ------------------------------------------ I knew he was hurting so badly and that he struggled with substance abuse more so than I did. But I was scared that night and I reacted in fear. While it is entirely up to the person to get sober or to stay an addict, a little bit of kindness can go a long way. If you know someone struggling with addiction, be patient with them. Recovery is one of the hardest challenges an addict has to face πŸ’•..... on a lighter note: you can see a piece of my artwork that got a C- in the background that I call "The Meh" πŸ˜‚ #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #backbend #backtoWV

A few months ago I ended a very toxic relationship and I went off the deep end. I started to question my sobriety (I did not completely relapse) and stopped taking care of myself in many ways, including doing many of the things I love like yoga, running, and being on Instagram. My attitude became very dark and everything about me became cynical. I started piercing everything I could put a needle through and pain became a drug I couldn't get enough of. The last few months I've tortured myself and have had so many intense feelings of guilt, shame, and self blame. There were days I could hardly brush my hair, let alone get out of bed.
It's hard to remember that just because my dad isn't in my life once again that there are other people who love me, especially my mom who has been my biggest cheerleader. Many days I forget this and let the despair control me. Admitting that I slipped up is hard but I'm still on my path to recovery and addiction won't always rule me.
I am loved. YOU are loved and important. If you're going through addiction either with self harm, drinking, substance abuse, etc always remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel and recovery is worth it everyday. #yeswestillhaveourxmastreeup #yoga #yogaeverydamnday
