I had my first yoga interview today. Not only that, but it was the first job interview period I’ve had since early 2007, since I’ve been a freelance writer for the past several years. It was an interview at a nice, airy studio here in Boston, which is looking for an admin assistant/marketing person. I figure this is a good way for me to get started in a new industry, and, also, it allows me to utilize skills I already have what with the writing and social media part of it. If I get this job, my hope is to be able to get some time in either assisting or running a community class. We’ll see. I’m happy to have taken my first step in a new direction, regardless of what happens.
As I was leaving my interview, C. texted to see if I wanted to wander around to check out the free yoga Sweetgreen (OMG, check this place out if you haven’t yet–delicious fruits and vegetables exploding in your mouth) was hosting there and to take some pictures. I only had about an hour (which, of course, turned into more), but we traversed around a bit, stopping at a girl’s lemonade stand on Charles Street (she’s saving up for acting classes–too cute), snapping some photos, then watching the yoga in Copley, with this amazing musician playing in front of them.
My friend (another C.) is coming to visit tonight, so I cleaned up this joint, then did another home practice, again working on side-crow. My left side is much easier to catch some air on than my right. Interesting.
After a productive day, now I’m off to chow down on some sushi with my buddy.
I leave you with my favorite quote of the day, brought to you compliments of my Facebook newsfeed:
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning acts of initiative (creation), there is one elemental truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that never would have otherwise occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: ‘Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”
