Thank you, Hippies

At 98 Degrees and with 7 visible humidifiers creating an unbreathable environment, usually the only thing i take from yoga is a skewed, loosely calculated percentage of the number of women who are in better shape than me, and the number of men who are gay. But on Monday night at 5:30, hot yoga gave me something else. A simple one liner that hasn't yet left my mind:

Where you're supposed to be is exactly where you're at.

A new way to spend a whole lot of money

50 minute activities that cost $100:

Dinner at Flemings... Including chocolate lava cake
Booking a one-way flight on Southwest
All sorts of spa treatments
1/2 a trip to Tiffany's and 1/20 of a trip to Chanel
A doctor visit
A therapist- or basically a glorified elementary counselor who responds to every question, robotically, with, "if someone asked you that question, what would you tell them?" And after about the fifth time I began to wish I'd chosen one of the above.

So much to say. None of it is uplifting. Except that I think it's funny I spend my entire day talking about bread.

There's no question that my favorite day of the week is Thursday. Being the introspective individual that I am, I find myself often puzzled as to why I don't look forward to Friday and Saturday like the rest of blue collar America. I have decided this is because the anticipation of the weekend, the break, the opportunity to regain strength and consciousness, is always better than the actual event. By Friday I am already planning for Monday, wondering if I'll be rested enough to work and essentially preemptively mourning the end of the relief before I've even experienced it.

Why I can't live in the present and only think about today is beside me. Why I stress about what I'm going to feel like in 4 days is a waste of time and energy. Anxiety is a fruitless emotion. Empty. Scared. Silly. But at least I enjoy my Thursdays!
