This was a post I made 10 years ago. As I read it, I became overwhelmed with gratitude at the growth I've made over the years. It's hard for me to believe that I was unnerved by such trivial things, yet I remember the rage (I don't use that term lightly) and anxiety that would jump on me over the least little thing.
People who only know me post yoga, would never guess that I was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. I've been physically aggressive, verbally abusive, had an affair, and attempted suicide. I know, I sound like the worst!
But here's what I found when I started this growth journey. You don't know what you don't know and you can't give what you don't have. So how do we become aware of the things we don't know and receive what we've never been given? Well, it doesn't just happen, that's for sure!
It is NOT true that wisdom comes with age. I know a lot of "older" folks...
