I have always believed, and i still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
i believe that everything that comes to you comes for a reason. and it is your choice how you deal with it. you can let it tear you down or make the best out of it. it is never the fault of an event or occasion that makes your life bad but your own fault because of how you chose to deal with it. of course, having a circle of supportive friends and family helps dealing with stuff in a postuve way but only your own, intrinsic motivation and dedication is the most powerful. .

The truth keeps coming this week. the wonderful @michellemalia_ connected with me about sharing my story on @vice. we chatted for a bit on the phone. as i told me story out loud it was unreal to hear it. but yet here it is. the world may now accept, judge or process. i’m not ashamed anymore. im free.⠀

I took this photo on april 1st, 2017, while visiting the fam in #newhampshire. i was two months into my yoga practice, addicted to posting daily yoga photos, and hadn’t warmed up before running out into the #snowfall first thing in the morning and sinking into this deep #hamstringstretch. my dad saw me and yelled, “what are you doing?!,” through the porch door, to which i yelled back, “yoga challenge!,” which clarified nothing.
i definitely do not recommend being this careless with one’s body; my hamstrings were strained for the next several months. on the flip side, an incredible photographer, @pketron, selected this photo for inclusion in @myfilmnorth’s “the n°rth,” a mobile photography exhibition in saint paul, minnesota opening today and running through february 6th! if you happen to be in mn, swing through and let me know if this shot was worth 4-5 months of uncomfortable #forwardfolds. 😩😆 as is only appropriate, it’s entitled, “what are you doing?!”
This morning.. my body needed something.. my mind was yearning for some peace. i havent practiced my yoga and meditation for a little while now. i needed to be still and allow myself to feel everything im feeling but also allow it to go.. its important to feel every emotion.. whatever you are facing- your current situation your experiencing- feel it, breathe it in.. and release it.. do not allow it to consume your whole self. after a much needed heavy meditation sesh- my soul feels renewed, my mind is calm and my body is thanking me for paying attention to its wants and needs... #yogainspiration#yogaflow#meditation#breathe#release#peace#namaste ✨😌 be kind to yourself. appreciate yourself. take care of your whole self💓 mind•body•soul
Don’t be afraid! 💜 il est facile de se réfugier dans le passé lorsque l’on pense aller mal. lorsque l’on est stressé on a tendance à trouver refuge dans la zone de confort et on répète les mêmes schémas indéfiniment. 😞 mais qu’en est-il de l’état de conscience ? n’y a-t-il pas une petite part de nous-mêmes qui sait que tout ceci n’est qu’une mise en scène, une façon de faire diversion pour éviter de regarder les choses en face ? 🙌🏼 j’en suis coupable moi aussi, tout comme vous. j’ai parfois peur de m’avouer que j’ai peur. mais il y aura toujours quelque chose ou quelqu’un pour me pousser à être plus forte que ma plus grande excuse lorsque ma propre détermination ne suffit plus. 💜 on a le droit d’avoir peur mais on a le devoir de faire face. find your peace 💜🙌🏼 #yogalove
"if we could believe we are deeply connected in the fragile places, we could drop the games. when you tell me the truth about yourself, i no longer hide form you. you become safe for me. so guess what? you are now a recipient of my truth too. i am drawn to you. your vulnerability makes a path for my own. your truth-telling says to me “i will not despise, judge, or abandon you”. ironically, it gives me the courage to be afraid, the strength to be weak. what keeps you from telling the truth? i’m guessing shame and fear - the irony is how they often prey upon an imagined reaction - how your truth might make people feel. we invent a worst-case scenario and it mutes us." - brené brown, daring greatly
