But it was yoga that saved me when you checked yourself into the hospital.
I know you to be a philosopher of sorts, a writer, an intellectual, a critic and a thinker of deep thoughts.
For teaching me about subtle beauty and how to recognize change as it occurs. Featuring a 5k run, yoga, and meditation, our focus is on community, not competition. I will never give up and I will never back down from what I believe in. From you I got my temper, and I can be vicious, hurtful, relentless and vile, and afterwards I am afraid of my own body, I cannot recognize myself.
My loud mouth and my morality. I know you to be soft and thoughtful.
I know you to be all of these things and more, even if no one else can see it. The day before I was to take my test to be a yoga teacher, they cracked your heart wide open. I love you because I am bound to you by blood, even when I am in agony.
Did you know that my favorite colour is blue? So here, now on the cusp of 30, contemplating the terrifying fact that I maybe sooner rather than later I may have children of my own, just thank you.
People will respect you only if you respect yourself. If this is something that happens to you, consider writing your thoughts and feelings in a letter to your parents.
