One year ago today my life changed forever. If you would’ve asked me on March 22, 2010 where I’d be March 22, 2011, I absolutely would not have said in Dallas, Texas. Alas, here I am. Today I dedicated my practice to my former mentor who broke my heart and confidence with his words. It’s a wound that still hurts me to this day and, although I’m much stronger than I was a year ago, I still find myself drowning in fragility and self-doubt. I know that one moment flows into another and I am now where I need to be. I am using my pain to build a bridge for others to cross.

Today I wished him peace and I forgave him. I am grateful for the experience, even though it hurt me, and ask that God blesses him.

P/S I had a great class.
