"The wrong side of the tracks"... What does that phrase mean to you? Some define it as the division of upper and lower class.
To me, being on the wrong side of the tracks would mean you've derailed at some point. It doesn't matter where you have come from it matters where you are going and the ways you keep pushing yourself to get there! 🍻 CHEERS TO THE FOLKS OUT THERE DOING THEIR BEST ON THE DAILY! 🥂
I've had to learn how to take care of myself again. At 30 years old my biggest self care choice to get sober catapulted everything else into the forefront of my life. Not being able to relax with a drink I am learning to find healthy outlets for all my emotions. Not able to mask them anymore I get the chance to really sit with them and figure out what's going on insead of pushing them down.
Not only internally but also externally, getting sober also worked as a catalyst. It is so true that when you are walking your path and standing in your truth the universe will guide you. All of a sudden things seem to be falling together easily because I'm doing something right!!! My choice is being reaffirmed as the right one at every turn.
I feel closer to myself and more in tune. I mean obviously, my head is clear! Yoga, meditation and writing have also been massive healers for me during this time. My heart is slowly getting lighter every day and I'm so happy that after 6 weeks I am sitting where I am.
My spiritual self is thanking me a million times over. Self care is the foundational for ALL things in your life. If you cannot connect with yourself and know what you need then everything else in your life ripples out from that weak connection. I am learning how true this is every day and am so excited to be cutting out all the things that aren't pushing me towards a path of higher consciousness.
I am so blessed to be so supported! Thank you all 🌼
