Hippie: The Redux
All right, so when I started this blog three years ago, I decided I wanted to be a hippie. So far, so good.
Three years later, I am a trained and Certified Yoga Instructor specializing in Yoga for Mental Heath, PTSD, Anxiety and Depression, I am registered in the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Certification program, I am teaching yoga twice a week for a police organization and have done more writing and editing.
I am planning a three day Yoga Retreat and contemplating ghost writing a Yoga book for a highly intelligent, creative and flexible person.
I have also since then, been promoted and lead a unit in Operational Support. Been published a few more times, still working on the novel, and still battling demons.
I have achieved more towards my goal and have moved away from what is holding me back.
I still dream of my house on an acreage where I can grow wine (yes, I know) read, write, stomp some grapes in the backyard, run through fields of clover with the wolves and splash in the ocean whenever the urge strikes.
Will it happen? Who knows. I try to stay the course, I meander, wander, stroll, roam and leap through paths. Life is more exciting when you can switch gears on a moment's notice.
