With walking out of the hellfire of an abusive life comes clarity.
I had thought that all I wanted in my life was to be left alone. But my clarity showed me different.
I was awakened to the thought that I don't actually want to be alone, I just want to be.
And so this shift of thought came over me and I realized I had found what I've been longing for all my life in yoga. To just be.
The process hasn't been quick or easy. Like all wounds they need time and care to heal so the rehabilitation can take place.
So the breaking down to build muscle can make me stronger,
the smoothing of the scar tissue can lengthen my reach,
and the silence can bring out what I already hold within, myself.
