A Little Hope

Emotional roller coaster.......some days that is just how it goes.......hellos, goodbyes.......break through, break down.......a world filled with pain, yet one smile, one hug can ease.....

I love what I do, I believe in what I do........but it can be hard.  Addiction destroys bodies, minds and spirits....but I believe there is hope.....it is called love.  A friend once said that love saved him from destruction......I believe love can conquer all.  I tell my students often how much I love them.  I want them to see their goodness even when they think there is none.

We make life so complicated, we look and search for happiness and peace in everything, every place, every person......but ourselves.  What we look for is already in our hearts.......maybe we have buried it under hate, guilt, anger, fear and pain........but spending time in silence, going inward with our selves......it's there, waiting for us to claim what is rightly ours.......love, peace, and happiness.  We have to choose it........and let go of the drama, let go of the pity, let go of self-destruction.

I am exhausted, on days like today......I cry, I hurt too.......but I also hug, and smile and love......and hope I gave someone a little hope too.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. You are a good person Jilda.
    God Bless

  2. I've experienced that roller coaster with someone and I know how overwhelming it can be at times. Thank goodness for people like you.

  3. Inner peace and unconditional love. Lovely post, Jilda.

  4. Oh, my goodness I just read this post and it was like I was reading something someone wrote about me and how I feel. You have a gift and I thank you for it:) As, I read the post my eyes just filled with tears............

  5. Jilda-
    You are truly beautiful. The pictures of flowers you posted today are gorgeous and remind me of your spirit, and the spirit in me you allowed to bloom in me.
    You may never know how much you have touched our lives, but for me, you REALLY did and I am eternally grateful for you. I have been seeking the peace you gave me in your yoga classes, trying classes here in Charleston and looking to find my sweet spot again and so far, nothing compares to your calming voice and eye pillows!! You'll always be in my heart (chakra, hehe)! You showed me unconditional love and gave me peace while I came in in a really dark place. You have a gift that keeps on giving-and don't ever forget that when you get tired.
    About the flowers...today I went to the Charleston Tibetan Society to meditate and the meditation was oddly on flowers and I thought of you and your guided meditation on roses. That was the quietest my mind has gotten since I left your classes, and I definitely thought of you!
    Love you!
    Good night!

  6. You are a beautiful spirit.
    I am praying for you and hope all goes well for you in the end.
