Jamming it out with my ❤️❤️❤️ @soulsurfer108 my heart and soulmate💙. It’s been interesting getting in touch with my creative and spiritual side... A part of myself that was undeveloped and basically nonexistent. Since childhood, I have always been in “survival mode” just trying to get through the day and stay alive. Each day or night was filled with challenges and terrors no child should have to navigate through. I remember being locked in my room, in my closet praying that I might be spared. Fear and anxiety were the emotions that raged through my body during my long hours of solitude.
What’s interesting is that I continued to be in “survival” mode through adulthood, most of the time by my own choices. My fear and anxiety ran my life even though clearly I was no longer a victim. I just didn’t know a different way. What a mess.
I am grateful to say things are different now. I don’t cross my fingers hoping to get through each day, I actually enjoy the life I live. I love the people in my life, I have balanced fulfilling relationships that are energetically equal. I am able to express without hurting myself or others.
3 years ago if someone would of told me what my life would look like now, I would of laughed in their face. It’s not that every single moment of each day is filled with happiness or laughter. I still go through struggles and I’m still doing the work, but now I’m equipped to deal with the struggles. One bad patch doesn’t send me spiraling out of control into darkness.
So KNOW the hard work you do, the blood, sweat and tears are not In vain. I validate it’s super hard to go through the process but also can say it gets easier. As you get stronger the ED voice and criticism gets softer and softer. Until one day it might be a distant thought because the life that you worked for is soooooo worth living. Don’t give up my beauties. You can do this💚💚💚
looking forward to hearing and supporting my friends Sameer Gupta and Dan Weiss in a musical/rhythmic conversation - tabla duet - this evening 9pm Caveat in the LES... @caveatnyc @danwdrums @tablajazz @brooklynragamassive #tabla#dilruba#lehra#nagma
