My heart is so heavy today. Beth died today, you guys. #18 is gone. She was only 17. I woke up to this sad news and just read online tonight that the 51 y.o. driver who struck her at 1055 am on Tuesday was charged with a DUI and wreckless driving.
I'm angry. I'm shocked. I'm so disappointed.
I have always hated liquor since I can remember. I tolerate it now and again socially but I have NEVER EVER been drunk in my life. I've never understand the god damn need to intoxicate yourself so much that you harm someone else, that you have no control, that you kill your body.
I understand it is considered a disease for some. But I also know it's a choice for others. And this person's choice has ruined an entire family and community for life.
This is not okay. It is not okay to drive. None of this is okay.
PLEASE. please. PLEASE. If you are an alcoholic, get help NOW. DON'T DRIVE. Reach out. Wake up. Stop hurting yourself and innocent others. Your life is so much more valuable than that bottle you're so attached to. Than your depression. Reach into those light places inside of yourself that were capable of loving someone else. We need to help that part of you shine again. The liquor isn't gonna fix you. YOU are gonna fix you. And there is help out there.
Rest in peace sweet Beth. Number 18. Volleyball queen. Beautiful daughter. beloved sister. Dear member of our community. I hope we can start a new movement against this stupidity of alcohol and drugs in our society. I'm so sorry you had to be another victim to it all.
If you have been watching this transformation for a while then you know when My world gets rocked and it's time celebrate. Especially to see the definition coming through. My tummy has always been my insecure point, my boobs have always been my secure point. This is my🔥 fire. To be able to reflect on the strong changes that are happening. Chronic pain, when it is an invisible disease, makes you feel utterly alone and defeated in certain courses. But to see my body changing and reflecting my stronger mentality, my heavier belief, and my strong willed to continue. I need theses little reflects. I need to be able to ponder on the magnitude in which I am pushing my body through. My curves have always been curvy but to earn some of the curves back and gain the strength to continue this is why I push myself.

“Everyone is the West is obsessed with physical health. Obsessed with looking good. Go to the gym. Destroy yourself with machines. Work your abs. Work your hamstrings. But why aren’t there machines for the anal sphincter? You won’t look too pretty when you’re shitting your pants.” #bryankest
Paraphrased best as possible. But you get the point. Wellness is in the mind. Yoga is the quality of the mind. NOT the physical practice. “Touch yourself gently.” Stop the idea of progress and start the progress of yoga. Quiet the mind. And don’t forget to strengthen your sphincter. 💕Last night was incredible. Thank you to @yogablissbr and @bryan_kest for putting together this experience. 📸 @all.about.tm#poweryoga
There's a lot of men and woman who feel less than and have a lot of insecurity issues stemming from childhood, bad relationships, jealous people making judgments.
They each handle it differently. Some turning to substance, some closing themselves off, hiding away, some acting out in anger anytime their heart is touched and they feel emotion they get scared. It bothers me so much when I hear other people putting people down or criticizing them. You don't know someone's past, you don't know their emotions. You're barley looking at the surface of them and making judgments. What does that say about you? I love when people brag about themselves. When they know they're special and take complements with pride and their heads held high. There's to many people quick to judge others or bring them down instead of lift them up. Everyone has gifts to share with the world, and you all should brag and love yourself. Be the stars that you were born to be. When you start looking at others, as a mother, a father, a sister, a brother, a child, you start seeing their innocence and vulnerability; you start seeing how we're all connected. Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions over a social media post, or an outfit, or a gesture. It's really ignorant and ridiculous. Love each other as you wish to be loved, and treat others as you wish to be treated. Peace be with everyone. XOXO - Om Shanti.
