Anyway, we had a chat at the end of class where we realised how much we missed seeing each other, how hard yoga was for me having missed quite a few weeks now and how I need to get my practice back into some kind of shape and how that will help with getting my head back into some kind of ordered space. Yoga works for me and I shouldn't forget that due to laziness!
As I was driving home, I was composing a blog post in my head about balance and what messages the universe had sent me to kick me up the arse that day, in both cruel and depressing ways. And then as I was getting home, my phone rang - I did not answer until I was parked in my driveway - and maelkann was calling to "chat". I went inside and continued to chat to him and then he pulled up in my driveway - unexpectedly! I was so glad he was there cause I really needed a hug. And I'd really missed not seeing him that week. And then he pulled out of his car my favourite takeaway, a mixer for cosmopolitans, a DVD and chocolate and said, "SURPRISE!"
And just like that, the horribleness of my day was near-forgotten and I could smile at the world.
Yeah, so ... balance. I'm gonna work better at it but also know that sometimes I just need to let the universe do its thing.
