I’d rather be alone than in bad company

It’s the People Inside that Make a House a Home

So my brothers moved out, and it’s been just me for the past 5 days…. I’ve been in a funk since he’s left & I hate being home alone.  

Yet, my brother said for now it’s time we go our own ways.  To discover what we really want in life.  He’s living his life passionately, following his dreams, and encouraging me more than anyone to follow mine.

He is my rock, my foundation, he understands me better than anyone in this entire world.

Not to long ago when my life turned to hell, he was the main person to help me through it.  

Today when I got off work I seen a picture of a man at his baby shower, he was standing there smiling with his arms around his pregnant girlfriend.

The man in that photo was the same man who abused me

So as you could see I was a little distraught 

I cried

My head was spinning in circles, I was thinking a 1,000 thoughts per second, and touched on every emotion there was.  

I knew I had to silence it.

I wanted to drink

& I wanted to drink a lot

I wanted to feel wanted, I was about to make some decisions that I would soon regret.  

But I took a deep breathe, I pulled myself together and rolled out my mat

I laid there and stretched, feeling every ache and pain

I embraced it 

I breathed through it. It made me feel as if the pain I felt was so small. 

I am proud of myself

So proud I’ve literally come to tears

There’s a peace I find at the end of practice, it is like stillness after a storm

I have strength and I have hope

I will continue to preserver 

The greatest lesson I have learned today

-Learn how to make yourself happy. When you are sad rely on you and no one else to bring that happiness back.  Learn how to change your perspective around, this will benefit you far more than anything else in life.  It is self love. Self respect.  There are far to many people in this world who lack it.  Do not let your self be one of them.   Do not turn to others to pull you out of the abyss you are in, what if one day no one is there, who will help you then? 

You have you. 

Finding peace in the midst of the chaos
That is true strength

My mat is where I go when I’m stressed, when I’m too worked up to talk to people & I just need to connect with myself

It’s where I find my breathe, my balance, & my faith

It reassures me, that with patience & hard work anything is achievable
