I feel good in my skin.

Friday, March 22, 2013

For years I had a hard time looking at myself in the mirror. Even when I was a skinny girl. I always been my biggest critic. Sometimes lately I've looked in the mirror, and say awful things like "Ugh, I need to work harder on my butt" although it's sort of funny, it's sad.. I have to stop myself and realized that for one I need to appreciate and realize how far I've gone. Also, outside beauty isn't much if you're not beautiful on the inside. Being critical even to myself can make me an ugly person. I do photoshoots with my friend who's an awesome photographer.. I realized with the few picture I've seen soo far I'm very proud of. I even look happier than the ones we have done before. I felt more relaxed in this shoot and felt a lot of confidence (which that was the hardest part to feel before). I'm not saying I feel like a foxy babe, but more I felt good in my skin. I'm not perfect but I worked really hard to be where I am at today, also never been so happy in general..

I feel the best I have probably ever. Granted when I was younger I was thin and some what active, I suffered from bad depression and felt miserable a lot. Now I have overcome majority of bi-polar/depression/anxiety. The lack of artificial ingredients and chemicals in my food and YOGA is what I believe has healed me. The philosophy behind Yoga has helped me as well. Although I am an atheist I do appreciate a lot of old wisdom that comes from many different religions. I just have become a better person, a lot my gratification and compassion. Although, I do have to admit it's not always easy but I remind myself daily that I won't be happy unless I get rid of the negativity. I feel a desire to help others and looking forward to helping my community and maybe someday I can teach Yoga and hopefully make someone like me change their life around like Yoga has done for me. (I hope this post doesn't sound arrogant)

    It's wonderful to hear that you've come so far. Depression, anxiety and bi-polar are all very tricky to handle. You should feel very successful right now! Not a lot of people can say what you just did! Also, good luck with hopefully becoming a yoga teacher! The best teachers are ones who enjoy what they do!

I always enjoyed Yoga, but never been very committed to the practice. I've been doing yoga everyday for a month and I've never been in such great shape (well in the past 8-9 years) nor have I've been in a better mood. I'm excited that I'll be upping my "game" on the Yoga department.
Exercise in general has always made me feel in a better mood. I've begun hula hooping last summer. I absolutely love Hula Hooping. That alone had slimmed me down a bit. I wish I would've been as committed as I am now 8 years ago.
Don't usually blog, just trying it out..
