Looking Back, did Gypsy Tribe fit in? Or am I the Antithesis of The Ideology of a Yogi?

I’ve received emails, heard comments and took a lot of critisism over business choices and personal choices.

On the flip side, I’ve met the most wonderful community in Pound Ridge. This beautiful town just needs more, and deserves more. How many great businesses have come and gone? Why?

We should have a thriving business district, filled with local people owning little shops, meant to have specific nitches that make this town unique.

I found many like minded people, but also so much opposition, jealousy and anger from people I knew for less than one year of my life; but these people did me a lot of damage.

I’m sick, broken and trying my best to give my clients and students the classes they had been enjoying.

I was never here to fight with anyone, or end up in some crazy battle over yoga. I simply wanted to get back to my roots of teaching and performing. That’s not a lot to ask for.

I know I don’t fit in to many places, which is why I created a space where I could thrive to earn my living. I still plan on doing this, and the doors that have opened in the past few days have been nothing short of a miracle. The Universe really does have my back.

The downside, I will miss seeing the kids happy faces after school in their studio. They deserved better.

Adults suck for the most part, we all have things we can make right and do better with. Maybe I deserved this on some Cosmic Level, or maybe this very trying time is a test to either chose growth or regression. Or maybe it really was me meeting the worst combination of people I could have possibly met at one time.

Whatever the reason, it’s here and happening, and I’m grateful that I can share my story.

It may be inconsequential to you, but to me, the ability to blog this, is healing.

“I’m sorry my truth got in the way of your illusion. I’m sorry I don’t fit the mold (no pun intended). I’m sorry you feel the need to vilify and degrade me for how I look, how you perceive me and how you choose to approach me. I will now give it as good as I get it. Kindness will always be my go to, but never my only option. Sometimes you need to feel it, feel that sting of discrimination. I’m either looked at as a young, inexperienced, pushover, weakling, or a bitch. I’m perceived as an evil member of the #lgbtqia community. I do identify with one aspect of it. The “A”.
Let’s just get that out of the way. I’m a woman trying to live her life her way. I’m different, I know that, but I don’t deserve to be treated with disrespect.
I let the only creatures in the world dictate my self worth, they are:
Myself
My students
Animals
The best judges of character, answer these questions:
Can you live with yourself?
Do kids like or trust you?
Do animals like you?”
