Oops... I did it again
Good news! I went to my second class. Bad news. I went to my second class in a bad mood. Apparently, the sacred domain of the yoga room is a place where you are supposed to forget time. There are no watches, no clocks, no cell phones. It sort of reminds me of my 9th grade algebra teacher who had a sign over the classroom clock that read, 'Time will pass. Will you?" But before class, I was attempting to balance my budget on a paycheck that needs to be spread as thinly as possible. I weighed the heaviest I had in months and it resulted in another small meltdown. I went in, frustrated that I kept wobbling to the point that my teacher came over to me and whispered, "Grace." I couldn't tell if she was trying to tell me to cool it or mocking me. I think it was the former. My cousin Felicia, who has a lot of the same idiosyncrasies I have messaged me to let me know that she, too, had taken up yoga. She shared a photo of Britney Spears in a headstand to inspire me. (If you know me...you know I have a soft spot for Britney). This inspired me. Britney had a rough period. She gained weight. She got dumped. She shaved her head. (I haven't done that yet) So if Britney can do take a photo like this.
