Meet Christy @urban.veggie sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words💚

"I will not allow autoimmune disorders, heartbreakers, liars, cheaters, or thieves steal my joy"


. "After years of intermittently haphazardly practicing yoga, it finally clicked that the pose is not the point— becoming flexible is not the point. Standing on your hands is not the point. The point is serenity. Balance. Truly finding peace within your own skin

.


I am a woman of passion. I like to get my hands dirty. I wear my heart on my sleeve. Love is my anthem. Kindness is magic, & grace is contagious. In order to positively impact in someone's life, you don't have to have all the answers. You don't need fame, fortune or followers— you just have to care. “Love changes everything—fill the world with it.”

. I believe that it costs nothing to dream, & everything not to. I am not afraid of doing the work— leaning into the uneasiness, opening myself up for potential “failure”. Rather, I am afraid of not trying— of looking back thinking "what if"

.

I am not a victim of circumstance, I choose the life I lead. I may not be able to choose the cards I am dealt, but I can choose to make the most of them. I will not allow autoimmune disorders, heartbreakers, liars, cheaters, or thieves steal my joy. I will not let the world make me hard

.

I am the author of my story, the CEO of my life, the artist of my canvas— & I am going to create an effing masterpiece. The only person that I am destined to become is the person I decide to be. So… I eat slowly, sing loudly, hug tightly, breathe deeply. I rock messy buns, hats, scarves, layers, & the quasi-frequent F-bomb. I celebrate the “wins” — big ones, small ones, everything in-between

.


I embrace my old soul, waking before the sun peeks its head out, and often going to bed soon after it sets. I am a work in progress. I am an optimist. I am soft. I am vulnerable. My heart is easily broken. But there is strength in my fragility. I am a Lover. Dreamer. Wife. Friend. HealthNut. Artist. Outdoor Enthusiast. Yogi. Nerd. Optimist. Vegetarian. Upcycler. Registered Nurse. Personal Trainer. Coloradan

I am @urban.veggie and I am yoga 🙏
