For most of my previous life

I lived a life of staying silent

Swallowing my opinions, feelings

and shrinking myself

.

.

I lived in fear of others,

whether they’d accept me or reject me.

I lived ashamed, thinking what I thought and feeling what I felt.

I lived trying my hardest to please everyone, so I felt I had worth

.

.

My time in hospital regrew me.

My time in therapy recovered me.

But it was finding

yoga that renewed me 🙏

.

.

The desire to no longer stay silent

to no longer swallow my feelings or opinions

to no longer shrink away and hide

but to use my voice, trust my gut and know I am worthy,

all came from yoga 💚

.

.

each time I roll out my mat

each time I move on my mat

each time I breathe on my mat

each time I lay still on my mat.

.

.

I feel my strength grow

I feel my confidence blossom

I feel my wounds heal,

and I feel less like the girl of my past 💚
