Following my heart has taken me around the world. Last October, I was in a strange place. I was in a relationship that was unsteady and unsure. I knew I wanted to do something different and be around different people, but expectations of others and listening to naysayers kept me from the pursuits of my longings. I had been wanting to travel abroad and become a yoga instructor for years. The yogic lifestyle had literally kept me alive, and I wanted to deepen that, connect with Source, and share this love with others. Being apart from this had me frustrated, depressed, and believing a family who said I had failed.
So, I found a therapist who was wholly encouraging. She helped me make a leap into investing in cryptocurrency, save for what really mattered, and make the jump to enroll in a yoga course. When I made it to India on what I thought would be a course with only women, I was surprised to be living across from this tall, bald, charismatic man from Poland with a steady gaze and strong handshake. I finally let him take me out on a date, and my time in retreat and self study was seasoned with a blossoming love and challenges to my perception of what this life is. (Cont'd in comments)
