Heidi Williams, akinek egykor súlyos mentális problémái voltak, most emberek millióját képes inspirálni. Kórtörténete szerint diagnosztizáltak nála PTSD-t (poszttraumatikus stressz szindróma), szorongást, valamit depressziót, sőt egyszer kis híján öngyilkos is lett. A meztelenül jógázó nőt megerőszakolták, majdnem elveszítette 6 hónapos babáját, szóval nem túlzás kijelenti, hogy brutális dolgokon ment keresztül.
De végül fordult a kocka, rátalált a jógára, amely nemcsak segített kilábalni a depresszióból, hanem gyökeresen meg is változtatta életét. Elmondása szerint a jóga segített neki abban, hogy békére leljen. Miután ismét önmagára talált, eldöntötte, hogy segíteni akar a hozzá hasonlókon. Komoly mentális betegségtől szenvedőknek tart jógaórákat, létrehozott egy online segítő csoportot, sőt Instagram profilján meztelenül jógázós képekkel kápráztatja el követőit.

I am laying here in bed at 5:30 am. He's been fussing since 12:30 am. And that whine… it echos the same sounds silas used to make when I was ill. the trigger that used to send me into insanity. My heart starts responding by picking up the pace. I start to feel the depression coming on. This isn't postpartum. Its not chemical. It’s the sinking feeling that things may not be so different than last time. And then I remember this "the presence of fear is a sure sign you are relying on your own strength. If you are trusting in your own strength, you have every reason to be apprehensive, anxious and fearful." - a course in miracles. .....Talking about this on the Support group this week. For anyone who is struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or just feels plain crazy, come join us. 😙😙😙😙 Also, I will get some pictures of baby up eventually. it's just that taking pictures of baby requires cooperation from baby. And right now I'm just not into it. Lol Hopefully soon.
#throwbackthursday on a monday. because i dont give a shit. Also because this picture make me laugh because: 1. Its not my favorite picture. It doesn't move me. It doesn't have a story or feeling behind it. the lighting sucked that day. It was simply a fun attempt at a cool looking pose. There are so many other photos in my gallery that are far ahead of this one in terms of "favoritism" 2. The symmetry was pure luck. It was a lazy day, and I didn't try hard like i do with some of my other artful photos. I took 4 shots of the same pose. The others were totally lame looking and this one somehow ended up making nearly perfect diamonds. 3. It went viral. it has been featured on more popular pages, posts and articles than I can count. All with hundreds of thousands of views likes and comments. Too bad i didn't watermark it. lol Thats not the point though. The point is: If you base the value of your creative art on the amount of likes it gets, or how much it is favored by everyone else, you are missing the beauty of creating. Creativity is a form of expression. It's a therapy. The result itself almost doesn't matter. The magic exists in the process. In the dance with the divine that takes place when you take a mere idea and breathe life into it.
