Look guys, no feet!

20 Sep


I did it!  There has been progress made in my yoga class!  I achieved the tripod balance pose!  I am actually one step (or two) away from a complete tripod headstand, and I am ecstatic about this.  I feel daring, brave, accomplished.

Never being one to take risks or challenge myself  physically, I am amazed at the ease with which I went into the pose.  Lately, I have noticed that there is a lot more flexibility in my poses and I have been more confident in class.  I think the teacher also noticed this and so she started to coach me into the pose.  It took me three classes to achieve this, and I guess it will take me a little longer to dare to do the complete headstand, but I will do it.

This is new.  This is not the normal me.  It is actually taking a little getting used to on my part.  But it is exactly what I wanted when I decided to take up yoga.  And so, encouraged by the success of this little adventure, I have decided to expand.

I’ve said I want to find someone to love, but I haven’t been putting myself out there so that this guy could find me.  Yes, I have been crazy busy with work, and it has been physically and emotionally draining, but I still need to go out and meet people.  I don’t think there’s another way around it.  Cause, you know, Dear Universe can’t do everything by herself.

For the past two to three months I have been a member of a group on meetup.com.  I joined cause it sounded like something I could and should be doing, but I haven’t gone to any of the meetups that they have scheduled.  I feel too shy and self-conscious to go out with a bunch of people I don’t know, even when they have welcomed me into the group.


Yesterday I noticed that there is a new meetup scheduled for Saturday.  Without thinking much, I rsvp’d and asked for directions to get there.  Now I will have to go.  We will watch short films at a park by a lagoon, and later we will walk to a close by restaurant for diner.  It sounds doable.  I think I can survive this, but it makes me anxious.  I know I will debate whether I go or not the whole day on Saturday, but I have to do it, and I want to do it.

So guys, think about me on Saturday and send me a lot of positive energy.  I need all the help I can get to go and do this.  It is really more frightening than falling flat in my butt trying to do a headstand.  However, I will work on the headstand even if I know I will fall, and I will be more social even if my butt is too flat. ha!

This bitch has no business making it look so easy.
