Times change…. we get new information… we learn….. we make realizations…. just like time, we too can change. I am sad for anyone that may have been the target of my hard ignorant heart and words. I am owning it and learning to shift. It is a process of self inquiry….please be patient with me as I make progress every day.
Yoga is there with me every step along the way. Not judging me and reminding me and leading me always on the path to healing.
