Hello Everyone!!! I know it’s been a while *insert lyrics to it’s been a while since I last saw you*, but I am back and back in the Yoga Game. The reason why I needed a break from blogging was preparing for my late brother’s birthday and his memorial. The 4th of this month would have been my bro’s 27th birthday and let tell you that was a more than difficult day for myself and my family. Exactly a week later we had his memorial at our house with a bunch of friends and family….I also wanted to speak at the memorial, because I could. There was no reason other than I wanted to it because he is/was/will always be my brother who I love and will forever miss. On top of all of this I was still teaching close to fifteen classes a week and trying to keep some sanity in my life, which was very hard to do. The memorial was beautiful, it was exactly what my mother wanted it to be which was perfect for me. If my mom is happy my dad is happy…which makes myself happy. Even though my parents are divorced they are extremely civil and nice towards each other….it’s not the perfect situation, but it’s a lot better than it could be. We had a catered lunch in after the service with the Grateful Dead playing in the background. My brother was the biggest dead head I had ever known. After the memorial, my best friend and I adventured to a starbucks and a local record shop. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love music….all different types of music….especially rock n roll. So after wandering through the record shop I found an old school Styx record and a Garfunkal record for my mom. As soon as I bought the records it started to rain and even though my fibromyalgia was killing me. I felt a sense of calmness. It was the feeling I got when I hugged my brother for the last time a few years a go (he lived in Florida, so it was hard to see each other). I felt better as I walked to my best friends car it literally was closure in the form of a rain drop or maybe the calmness from which that raindrop brought. I will forever love and miss my brother terribly, he was an amazing man, a kind person, and a wonderful human being. I am proud to be his little sister and I hope he is proud to have me as a little sister. I’ll give you some life advice this week….Cherish every thing that life has given you because in a blink of an eye it could be gone. I send positive energy to all of you this week.
Until Next Time, I’ll see you on your mat,
The Curvy Yogini
