These are both photos of me, but these are two very different people.
On the left was around 4 years ago. I was struggling. I suffered from daily panic attacks, I was dependent and abusing prescription medications.
I lived each day in the most intense emotional pain, desperately seeking healing, but not knowing where to turn. It was as if my insides where in the depths of hell.
Seeing this photo reminds me of that bottomless pit of darkness that consumed me for years.😔 It also reminds me of how dang grateful I am for this life and where I am today.
If it weren’t for those really dark times, I wouldn’t be so aware of the Beauty of life. Those times took me deep within myself to hollow out space for the light to enter down in the darkest trenches of my soul.
The photo on the right is me now, this person will continue to evolve too. I now live panic attack and medication free!
I no longer try to be an idea of perfection, I’m simply learning to love who I am. I am continually learning who I am and it’s like opening a gift to find a another box inside. 😍
My eyes are clear! Look at the difference! My heart is full, I live in such peace within myself. I still face challenging circumstances, but learning to navigate my inner world has given me the strength, courage, and insight to face whatever lies before me in the world.
I say all of this to say, if this shell of a human can heal, so can you! I was completely lost, trapped, desperate, and alone. If you’re there now, I know this depth of pain and I’m here to tell you, you can heal too.
You can live a life free of being controlled by fear, anxiety, unworth, insecurity and victimhood.
Start by allowing yourself to feel whatever it is you’re afraid to feel. Question your beliefs. Spend time alone with yourself. Practice breathwork. Practice Yoga. Attend counseling. Join a support group. Watch inspiring videos. Read inspirational books. Pray. Meditate. Receive. Surrender. Whatever puts you in touch with your inner world. The answers are within YOU. 🙏💖😊

Blocks help students with motor skills, hand-eye coordination, spatial reasoning and much more!
We’re so excited for our students to get their hands on the @learningbeautiful
materials starting in the new year!
Concepts become increasingly complex and abstract as a child continues to grow cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically.
The World Map exemplifies the increasing complexity of the materials:
-A three-year-old (first-year student) could use the map as a puzzle. At this time, the child may learn to associate the colors of the continents to the names.
-A second-year child may be able to trace and color the pieces to make a map of his or her own - seen here!
Byron Katie and Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati (died April 14, 2012) was a spiritual teacher born to Jewish parents in Brooklyn, United States. Her outlook has been influenced by Jesus Christ and the Hindu saint Bhagawan Nityananda. She has also been informed by the teachings of Neem Karoli Baba, Ramana Maharshi, Narish Keit, and Shirdi Sai Baba. Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati founded the Kashi Ashram, "an international interfaith community based on kindness, compassion and service", in Florida in 1976. (from Wikipedia)
As we are wrapping up the year we reflect on it.
This year has been one of the most challenging but also the most rewarding year of my life.
2018 has been the year of emergence and total disruption of anything that is not ours, of anything that is not in alignment with our highest ideals and truth.
I am unraveling the illusions that I used to live and believe in. I have seen people walking out of my life so quickly, who I thought would stay for a long time. I was so damn sure about it, I was wrong.
I saw friends turning into strangers, as I have become a stranger to them, because we have decided to go different paths. I have seen and felt the pain myself what denial does between two people, what it does to love, and I had to watch it, accept it, surrender to it eventually.
I have learnt to say yes to me, and no to a lot of things, situations, and people, that just aren’t a match to me. I have grieved over the “losses“ and I have blessed them. I know my worth.
I am no longer accepting people’s egotistic projections onto me, I don’t accept emotional withdrawal, I don’t accept any kind of manipulation, guilt tripping, blaming or shaming. .
I have seen so many wonderful people walking into my life, too, and I saw friends that were gone for a while, suddenly walking back in again and the bond that we have created from being apart and coming back together is priceless and strong.
This year has shown me what kind of relationships I want to have with my friends, my family, my future partner. And these kinds of relationships are of integrity, emotional presence, love, honesty, laughter, and joy. .
It was truly painful to see the illusions I was living fall apart, but I see now how painful it actually was to have lived in them. .
“When we’re not trying to please other people, we begin to understand what’s right for us.” ~ Byron Katie
This past week was uplifting, special, lots of effort, connections, kindness and an overwhelming amount of passion. ✨
Passion from my littles, their families, my teaching colleagues and partners and myself. Passion fuels our learning, our growth and our celebration.
Feeling very grateful for the community of learning I am fortunate to be a part of. ♥️
RESTORE • to return something to its original glory. Consider, what if your original state, is in fact, glorious? What if, just by being breath in a body, consciousness in human form, you came into this world perfect and whole. Not because you did something, proved something, got something, but because, at your core, you are Love. Try that on for size, and maybe even get closer to that part of yourself. Rest. It’s not instinctive for most of us, and it’s surely a luxury, but I tell you what, there’s a whole reservoir of power there. A Sunday consideration. 🙏✨🖤 #rest #contemplation #meditation #mindfulness #restoration #connection #attunement #inquiry #practice #holistichealth #buckwheattobutter

In SFC, if you have a 6” knife (concealed or not), you’re not legally allowed in restaurants/markets/etc, while if you have a concealed firearm /w permit, you can have your weapon in restaurants/markets/etc? It’s institutional hostility vs poor person def weaps, not vs $? I read the people of San Francisco voted against Trump, while the San Francisco Police Association donated money to Trump’s campaign. The police vote/act overtly against the people of San Francisco & are not /w them, nor of them. They are evil invaders/occupiers.

The holidays can stir up a lot of emotion. Notice yours and ask yourself what that emotion is trying to teach you. Is it an opportunity for growth, self-reflection, or change? 🌱🌱🌱
Yoga teaches us to sit with the discomfort. To ask what else. To accept ourselves and our emotions- shadow and light.
What are the common themes that show up for you every holiday? And can you sit with the discomfort and identify the emotions that come with it?
