The vampire stood a few feet back from the door, and stared. In his mind, an age had already passed since the door hit the frame, he’d watched the screws in the hinges until they ceased their panicked vibrations, and watched the shadows play under the door as the she walked away. He’d listened to the stroke of his own handkerchief across her neck as she wiped her blood away, smelt the soft tang as it began to coagulate in the tiny punctures, and then the ‘ding’ of the arriving elevator, the grind of the metal doors, and the spinning and coiling whirr of the rope as the car descended toward the ground floor, some ten stories below. 🖤🖤🖤🖤 You can read more on my blog!

In these photos there are 3 different chapters of my life.. far left I’m early 20’s and overweight... fast forward to the middle photo, I’m 30 years old, about a few weeks out from my bikini competition and somewhere between 10-12% body fat... Lastly, on the far right - that’s recent and 34 years old. Different people may prefer one of these looks more than the other, and I can respect that... but at the same time it doesn’t matter nor bother me one way or the other. The cool thing about this story and all of its chapters is I can turn back to reference from them whenever I need to, because “I’ve been there”. I can relate to 99% of women. I’ve been overweight, down, inactive, lacked confidence, ate whatever I wanted and have led a very unhealthy lifestyle. I’ve also overtrained, dieted and restricted, done the whole hours of cardio thing, developed unhealthy eating habits and behaviors, dealt with metabolism and hormonal issues, eaten 6 small meals a day and had a “no days off” mentality. Then lastly... I’ve learned to love myself, be human, have fun, live life all while leading a well balanced and healthy lifestyle. I’ve learned to be confident in who I am with 5 or maybe even 10 lbs of extra curves on me. Because it’s okay... you can take those lbs back off. No matter who I work with or talk to ... I can almost always turn back to a chapter and relate to them. No matter where someone is starting from, my goal is to get them back to center, back to balanced and most importantly back to happy. The number on the scale does not matter to me, how they FEEL is my #1 priority. I can look back on all of it now and realize this story (even with all the ups and downs) it was meant for me. It all needed to happen so that I could be able to relate, and help the women who need me. The struggles, the highs, the lows, the good days and the bad... I’m just grateful for it all ❤️ #story#journey#healthcoach#happy#balanced#selflove#personaltrainer#fitness#fithappygirl#scottsdalefitness#oldtownscottsdale#independencegym#weightloss
One of the holiest pilgrimages for the Hindus, Kedarnath Temple Jyotirlinga is located in the picturesque surroundings of Rudra Himalaya Range at a height of 12000 feet on a mountain named Kedar.
The temple at Kedarnath enshrining the Jyotirlingam of Shiva opens only 6 months a year (April-November). The priests then go to Ukhimath, where the worship of Kedareshwara is continued during the winter season. Tradition has it that pilgrims first visit Yamunotri and Gangotri and bring with them the holy waters from Yamuna and Ganga and offer abhishek to Shri Kedareshwara.
Legend goes that Nara and Narayana - two incarnations of Shri Vishnu performed severe penance in Badrikasharaya of Bharat Khand, in front of a Shivalingam fashioned out of earth. Pleased with their devotion, Lord Shiva appeared and said that they may ask for a boon. Nar and Narayan requested Shiva to take up a permanent abode as a Jyotirlingam at Kedarnath so that all people who worship Shiva shall be freed from their miseries.
As per another legend, Goddess Parvati worshipped Kedareshwar to unite with Shiva as Ardhanareeswarar. Besides, the Pandavas are believed to have visited this area several times. Arjuna is believed to have come here to pray to Shiva to obtain the coveted Pasupataastra.
Acc to most popular legend, the place came into being during the period when the five Pandavas brothers were asked to seek Shiva’s blessings purging them of the sin of killing their cousins. Lord Shiva unwilling to give darshans to the Pandavas fled Kashi to live incognito in Guptkashi, where eventually he was detected by the Pandavas.
It is believed that by praying to Kedareshwar, one can get all his desires fulfilled. 🌀✨🕉🐚🙏🏻
