It was a true revolution for my body and well-being to discover free yoga youtube videos five years ago thanks to the channel Yoga With Adriene.
Then something happened. I lost someone I love inasmuch as the man I was in love with decided to leave the country for ever. A similar situation had happened to me many years ago, leaving me feeling like a fly stuck on her back or like a person gasping for oxygen.
So I made a little experiment. Why not? I had nothing to loose anyway, I couldn’t feel any lower.
I hung onto it. I did the same yoga video every day. After five days, I noticed a definite change in my mood. I was still sad but feeling empowered. I discovered I had everything in me to deal with such big emotions.
The secret my friend my sister is to remember that our body and our mind are connected. Then we can make the most of this beautiful union!
I feel my life as a child was a bubble of loneliness. Then I have been abandoned by some men I really deeply loved. As if the people I care about the most were always far, impossible to touch, living behind glass doors, leaving me all alone in a gigantic room.
That feeling is not something I wish to keep inside. Therefore I am choosing to express it to let it go.
I choose to put it out so I can turn the page and live a happy life.
You deserve to let the past go my friend my sister because there are beautiful things waiting for you on the other side of expressing yourself!
Of course moving forward means letting go of any resentment or anger towards the person in whom we had so much trust but who left us.
Nevertheless, there is an important way to go, beyond that beautiful person we have fallen for. It is our big job to really go inwards, inside our soul, to draw as much as compassion and tenderness possible to realize the best thing ever: forgiving ourselves.
I forgive myself to have given my trust when it was my responsibility not to take so many risks.
I forgive myself to have given all my love when he was showing me with his behavior that he did not love me anymore.
At 20 years old, I was passionate about martial arts.
I was practicing karate in my neighborhood.
However, sometimes I was falling apart crying in front of the door of my karate class.
If I was able to transform my life from this feeling worse than depression to my actual life, which I love with so much enthusiasm, it is thanks to beautiful souls who share their life stories and experiences.
Never underestimate the positive impact you can have on others my friend my sister. Share, express yourself! At the moment, reading the posts of Natalie the believer on IG really warms my heart.
You are not alone my friend my sister and you have in yourself the capacity to come out of it.
Who? My neighbor who wakes me up in the night because of his door slamming or my boss who writes so badly I can hardly read him.
Really? Not so sure!
If I choose not to take things personally, I can look further than the surface or my ego and I can grasp reality better.
My neighbor has such an issue with his door that he has to kick it so he can enter his flat.
My boss is so concerned with my situation as a single mother that not only does he raise my salary to the maximum of his capacity but he also offers me a loan shall I need one.
Not taking things personally is one of the four agreements from the famous book by Don Miguel Ruiz. If you love this author, I also recommends Mastery of Love, such a great book on romantic relationships my friend my sister.
