I want to start by saying thank you so much for all the emails, comments and conversation about my February blog. Check it out if you haven't read it.
My update, I feel all the words in the photo above plus many many more. I am still on my exciting new self exploration journey, meditation 20 minutes every morning, veganish, because I did add seafood, and no wine. I also stepped out of my comfort zone and took up spinning at http://psycletherapy.com and I am obsessed with it. My friend thinks I should add teaching cycle to my wheel house. Shh please don't share that with my husband!
The Free Yoga event I had at Tim Dorsey's Fitness for Victory Soup Kitchen was absolutely amazing. People are so generous and kind and it was such an honor to teach all the new yogi's and to see all the familiar faces. The next Free Event will be April 16th. Stay tuned for all the details.
I was really surprised by the the number one question and comments on my last blog. It created a lot of soul searching conversations, not just for myself but for so many, and the conversation is still going on.
I love it!
So here it is. "How can you give up wine?" "Your never going to drink again?" "What are you going to do about all your social activities?" "What are going to do when your stressed out?" How do you feel?" "Has it changed you"? There's more but these are the ones that come to my mind right now.
I have realized what an important role our society has put on drinking, especially with women. I am no expert so check out this link, it is eye opening. http://www.helpguide.org/harvard/women-and-alcohol.htm
For me personally, after having this conversation with so many individuals, I feel as if it was time to move on. What I mean is, I don't want to rely on alcohol or anything else to make me feel. I want to feel everything and what I thought about alcohol and what it does is actually the complete opposite. My truth is I have never felt better about myself and my life. As for all the questions I received. It was much easier then I thought letting go of the wine. I don't know if I will ever drink again but for today I feel better without it. As far as social activities, I feel like I have more engaging and honest conversations and I love club soda and lime,lol! As far as stress is concerned, I sit in meditation, I practice yoga or I go to a spin class. I feel wonderful! Has it changed me? Absolutely!!! I think this topic may require a lot more blogs.
Thank you for reading and as always I would love to hear from you!
