So Rachist

Stories from life and yoga. Reflections on my own. You can survive anything if you keep a sense of humor and live yoga.... I am proof. Anorexia, Bulimia, Drugs, Alcohol, Abuse, Mental Illness - I have a different sobriety date for each....For some I've had multiple. I never thought I would, but I endorse recovery and sobriety...why? Yoga. I am one grateful and recovering anorexic who happens to be one of the worst addicts I've ever met. Find inspiration that's realistic, here. I'm not an overnight success, not even close.

Single Woman Thought Tangent

"What the hell am I proving? What’s wrong with being a wife? I want to be a wife. I want to be an individual! It doesn’t work can’t I be an individual in my brain and not tell my husband? Wait! What if my husband loves me as an individual?! Are those men real? Some of my friends are like that but they’re my friends. Why are they my friends? Do I just need to get laid I do NOT want to get married. I’m hungry."

This is recovery.

No one answer.
Whatever it takes.
NO ONE should be ashamed, to be alive.
Why aren’t we helping each other?

Be the change.
This is recovery.

Getting sober sucks until it doesn’t. 

Swear you’ll laugh again

Where do you go when you’re sober?  

The river.  
Same place you got drunk.  

I just laugh and do yoga, now. I still break the same rules, just sober.
