This cartoon reminds me of when I tried to do Yoga. One of my dearest friends is an amazing yoga teacher. I convinced my inflexible, goofy self that I would be perfect for yoga. I talked my girlfriend into teaching me privately so I wouldn’t make a fool of myself in front of a group. I think she would agree (although she won’t admit it) that I was probably the worst yoga student she had ever taught. I could never stop making comments on how crazy I must look upside down and why do my legs jiggle so much when I move that way. I continued to add a lot of other comments that were probably not appropriate for a calm yoga room.
She tried to keep reminding me to be peaceful and centered – hmmmm…. Does peaceful and centered include getting the giggles and asking how much longer do I have to lay like this? It’s a good thing we are such close friends.
I really wanted to be that flexible, toned, peaceful and centered woman – just like my dear friend/teacher. I guess I will have to settle for jiggly, super inflexible and having uncontrollable thoughts that I blurt out at the most inopportune times. I think I will try meditation next – yeah right … anyone rolling their eyes?
