It’s funny – just last night I was talking about how my super-emotional self has been oddly super stagnant all week. Stagnant and stuck in a completely content, happy state. A state completely sustained by gratitude. And this morning I woke up & everything changed: Something cracked open. Something shifted. Something opened the gates and let all the other emotions flow. I took this picture early this morning as I was walking down to the Shala. If only I knew it would be such a powerful day: A day of self realization. Of grounding. Of fighting against the draw of negativity. It’s been a day of strengthening. Of opening up. Of coming out ahead. It has been a day of finding support in my community. Of leaning on friends and teachers. Of finding comfort on my mat. Today was a day of struggle, but it was also a day of success.
