  • I wasn’t planning on discussing this event anytime soon but a recent occurrence with somebody I know prompted me to change my stance on the matter.
It was 9 months ago when I joined @teamrubicon and my first event was a suicide intervention skills development course. The skills I learned during that course was put to the test the following week when I encountered a young veteran, who was reaching his breaking point and thought suicide was his only option to end his torment. The only bit of information I had gathered from the young man was the day he planned to carry out the act (which was drawing close) and that he hadn’t formulated a plan of action yet. The fact that he didn’t have a plan yet was a good sign because it meant I still had an opportunity to pull him back from the brink. I needed him to tell me his story and make me understand what the circumstances were that got him to that point.
Listening to his story I came to understand that when he tried to express himself emotionally to his family and counselor and he was being dismissed. The continuous dismissal from the people that were supposed to be his support system eroded his morale, his identity, his feelings of self worth. He continued to tell his story, which I took as a good sign because he was expressing feelings that never had an opportunity to be voiced. I was waiting for a specific cue to occur that would indicate to me that he had a fighting chance to pull through, and that cue was crying. When the tears started to flow I felt a bit of relief because it indicated to me that he didn’t actually want to end his life, rather he needed to be heard and understood.
The young mans story was telling me that he was dealing with generational trauma placed onto him by his parents unresolved issue, trauma from his youth, trauma from his military service, and daily stresses. Without a way to express how all that trauma was affecting him it was only a matter of time when it would negatively impact him. 
My role in all this was to create a safe space so that he could express long dormant emotions ; I was a conduit to help facilitate the release of emotional burden.

  • This beautiful picture captures when I was 24 and practiced yoga. I remember when I first came to @kheperasankarayoga studio. I felt BROKEN. I had a smile on my face, yet I was shattered into a million pieces. .
.
As my instructor she softened the blows that were relentlessly being thrown at my heart, teaching me about listening to my breath and how to let my body flow through a series. She seemed to see so much potential in me and my practice that I didn’t at the time. .
.
I remember silently sobbing in one of our sessions and she noticed. She kindly told me to be gentle with myself whether I offended someone or if someone offended me, then sharing some of her life experiences. Before departing from class she spent some extra time to practice “heart openers” with me to help me relax and release some of my pain. .
.
She helped me see the differentiation from my lower self and my higher self. It’s really something I will remember for a lifetime. It helps me still to this day, and it’s a gift I now share with others, just a little differently.
.
.
Even though I don’t actively practice yoga anymore, I will say it was an experience that helped me grow as a being and awakened me to my own passion for flexibility.
.
.
Thank you @kheperasankarayoga for being such a great Sensei at such a vulnerable time in my life. I want you to know that the work that you do is never in vain. You didn’t just help my body, you helped guide my spirit. Love, always 💜 .

  • Guys! I don’t know what lead me to @40acts, but I’m so grateful. These prompts are perfectly lining up with my life. I’m awestruck! Each day/prompt offers a place for me to focus my unused gifts or a prompt will challenge me. Today’s prompt and yesterday’s are the perfect example of that. 🥰 •
Today’s prompt we are encouraged to share of our gifts. As you all know, I’ve been teaching a Crochet Class @ a local shelter. The first two classes were so well received I’ve been invited to teach it weekly. AND, I found out yesterday that I’ve been offered a donation of YARN!! I’m so overwhelmed. When God provides... My ultimate goal is to not only use this class to enrich my students, but give them purpose. I’d love for us to get to a place where we make items for the shelter itself: mitts, scarves, beanies. We can do it! I’m ready! 🧶 •
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:6-8‬ ‭NIV‬‬ 📖 •
Yesterday’s prompt we were encouraged to lessen our carbon footprint. 😫 It’s hard when you realize how much of a global impact you are creating. I tried, yesterday, to step out of my comport zone and do without for the day. I noticed. Lol. But I tried. And will continue to challenge myself in this area. 🌎 •
