It’s interesting to think where I was before I started the whole teacher training thing and where I am now. It could be the training, it could be other factors in my life, but as of right now, I’m just completely happy and content.
When I started training in late April / early May I was in a much different place. I had actually decided to go through with the yoga training because I felt like I needed something to “get back into life.” I was beaten down, relationships with friends were kind of falling apart, and I just didn’t feel good emotionally. And I guess that’s how I’ve been for the last year and a half (since my brother died).
Now, I feel like I have a lot of things together. I realize how much positivity can really affect not only you, but others around you. I’ve let go a lot of the negative energy around me. I’m eating healthier. I’m exercising more.
I started a new job where I don’t know anyone. It’s a fresh start. It’s like starting college where you can be whoever you want to be. You don’t have to be the person you were in high school. I’ve let go of everything that’s brought me down in the past. And it’s only been about two weeks and I’m starting to meet people that I think I can be really good friends with even outside of work.
What was really amazing is how much my friends have noticed my change. One of my good friends told me the other day, “It’s nice to see you so happy.” And I was just thinking… yeah… it is. 🙂
