In all of my life I have never had much confidence. I never stood up for myself and I doubted a lot of my capabilities. I always focused on my weaknesses and never stopped to look at how much I had accomplished. The old me would have looked at me in this photo and said “my elbows aren’t straight enough and I am not bent far enough blah blah..” Today I see progress. I see my body changing and I today I felt it. Reaching goals isn’t about getting there right away it is about what you went through to make it in the end. I never felt good enough or brave enough to take risks before. I never pushed myself past my comfort zone, and I never gave myself credit for what I had done. I am happy that I have pushed myself in all aspects of my life not just my yoga (although this made me feel great!). Today I am proud to say I am doing this for me.. Not to impress or try to show the world what I can do but to show myself how far I’ve come…and the best part is its not even close to over yet. The journey to find myself has just begun.🌞 🍃#yoga #selflove #yogi #yogalove #yogini #happy #yogaeverydamnday

Today my head hurts, its full of things I don’t feel like well..feeling. I guess that is always the case when you are hurting..but sometimes hurting is the best kind of feeling..because after the pain comes strength you never knew you had. Today I let go of so many words trapped on my tongue. I felt the feelings and I let them take over me. I needed to know that it was real. I needed to feel the pain again, to open the wound that reminds me where my heart feeds..I told the secrets of my soul and I didn’t hold back this time. I don’t know when I gained the strength to open my heart to old memories but I knew it was the path my day was going to take.
I call it fate.
then led astray.
Heart on fire,
pot of gold.
Life’s a liar,
The final day, 21, of #yogagirlchallenge and its #selflove I struggle with this so much. I have tried to find true peace within myself for so long. Today I meditated about me.. Who I am.. What I want in life. I spent time with me and I opened up to the things I push to the back of my mind. I felt things I needed to feel and I let things go. I decided to put myself first for once and that is not easy for me to do.
Self love for me is appreciating the life I live and who I am today. 🙏

Day 20 of the #yogagirlchallenge is #somethingnew and today I tried this new version of a headstand that I haven’t played around with yet. It felt so good to see that I am capable of more than I thought I was. I feel my body changing week by week and I couldn’t be happier. #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #yogini #headstand #happyplace 🙇😝💗
The longest and best #crowpose I have done yet! Very happy!!!! #yogini #yogi #strength 🙌🙇✌
Day 18 of the #yogagirlchallenge is mother nature and this morning I had a little early morning yoga session in my favorite spot in the yard. I love doing yoga under the leaves of the trees. 🌳🙏🙆
To anyone who personally knows me they are aware of my overwhelming love for plants and animals. I grow so many different plants inside and outside my home. I have more pets than the average person and I always seem to attract all kinds of insects and birds while I’m outside. I know I have a connection with the Earth that is very special. I feel it when my bare feet hit the grass, when a cool breeze whips my hair into my face, even when I look Into the eyes of any living being I feel mother nature. It is safe to say I am a very nurturing person when it comes to taking care of plant life or any life in general. I love this Earth! 😍

Today is day 9 of the #yogagirlchallenge and the topic for today is true forgiveness..
This had me feeling quite emotional today because I have been holding onto so much that needs to be released. I have such a hard time letting go of things and accepting the way life goes. Some days I am angry at the world for my mom being sick. Some days I can’t forgive even my first love for hurting me. So many past issues and present problems need to be let go. Today I forgive the world for being unjust, and unpredictable. I forgive the ones who have hurt me, for you have only made me a truer version of myself… And Today I also forgive myself for thinking I am weak. I know the world is not at fault for the way our lives play out, and maybe it has taken me a long time to realize this, but I am only stronger for dealing with more than I though possible. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for every moment I have lived before this second of this minute. Life is such a gift even if we don’t realize it until a later time.
**on a side note this butterfly stayed on me today throughout my whole little yoga session..I felt like as I released these weights from my life the butterfly felt my peace and knew he would be safe with me. I felt so connected with nature. #happy #forgive #butterfly #yogaeverydamnday @yoga_girl
