"Once a upon a time, the lady in this photo lived in misery. Depression and addiction consumed her life. She felt unworthy of life itself therefore, she treated herself with disrespect. She didn’t dream of anything, for there was no hope to be found on the four corners of her couch. Her life continued as a cycle of misery, she didn’t see a way out "That used to be me. • For 10 years I lived this way until I was arrested for a DUI. I was forced to take a hard look at myself. I hated who I saw. At that moment my life change forever . . I am not the woman who lives in misery anymore! I am free from drugs and alcohol after turning to yoga . . Yoga taught me how to love myself. It pulled me out of depression, it showed me how to treat myself with love and respect. Ultimately, it’s why I became a yoga instructor so I could share the love and light that yoga showed me with others . Now I have purpose. I have love for myself and others. I am beyond blessed to have the incredible life that is set before me. Erika ✨🙏🏻💖"
