People gathered on Valentines Day to support One Billion Rising, an event to bring awareness and stop all kinds of violence against women and assert their rights.
I fully support this cause.
I was once abused in a domestic setup. I knew what verbal, mental, emotional and physical harrassment and hurt on a daily basis for more than two years. Escape was a long time coming, but I got away. There was a cost for freedom and I paid for it dearly.
Now I am living a blissful life.
…and the light switch gets turned on.
In the past few months, I have managed to do further clean-up, in my mind, my environment and in my relationships. My wellness regimen is on the upswing and I practice no attachment . Let go, let flow.
I write to give a heads up to the process. Last year I have battled anxiety and awareness helped in bringing it to the light.
Now I focus on the present moment and concentrate on work, more exercise, quiet time and meditation. SELF-CARE in all caps.
It has been raining a lot and I am in coffee shops more times than I want to, but I am blessed. I am here, when others are so affected by the rains and have to flee their flooded homes. I am grateful.
I look out the window and see a beautiful city. Its new, modern, dynamic and I am a part of it.
My new life has truly begun.
