I can only handle it in small doses. Some of my most intimate memories from what seems like a past life, revealed to me in the present moment. Certainly stirs up ALL the emotions - the good, bad and ugly!
But there are a couple messages that have become clear. The first one being just how far I’ve come. My life may look like a world full of zen, but it’s sure been a rocky road, and a few detours, getting here. Yoga and meditation continue to be the path which leads me to a more peaceful life.
The second message is all the love that surrounded me during those teenage years. Hundreds of cards and letters from my tribe of family, friends and mentors. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being there. For inspiring me, encouraging me and awakening me.
Today, I no longer write in a journal and hold onto fewer and fewer memories as the years go on. And while it’s uncertain what the future brings, I’ll always be grateful for the people, places and lessons learned along the way. 🦋
