A Spa found out about me:
Owner: Joy, I would like you to be part of my team!
Me: (feeling...Aye Aye Aye) Well whats going on and let me see what you are about?
Owner: We are five salons, ranging from Hair, to manicurist, to facials and fake lashes!
Me:Okay, I am coming in as a Massage Therapist? (unsure as to what I am supposed to be part of)
Owner: No, I heard you were a yoga instructor
Me: Well yes! Where have you been practicing?
Owner:Oh, Joy I don't even know what Yoga is. I just heard you have a yoga following and I thought what a perfect addition you would be for my spa!
Me:Having yoga at your spa or that I have a following of potential clientele?
Owner: (seeing my expression)I mean, I can take some of your classes I am sure I can get some of the stylist too!
How hard can it be? We are just stretching on the floor right? Probably won't even break out a sweat?
Me: I will think about it.
Bumped into a Yoga Instructor:
Instructor:Your Joy right?
Instructor:A student of yours came to my class.
Me:(elated) oh yeah, nice!
Instructor: (seemed disturbed) Well, she seems to think she can do yoga.
Me:(unsure where this is going) What do you mean?
Instructor: I call out a pose and she modifies many of them and can barely keep up.
Me:Did you say you were teaching yoga?
Instructor: (all proud)Yeah I do and I have a large following. Its just our group we are very disciplined and we do yoga.
Me: (I closed my eyes, took a big deeeeeeeeeep breath in, hugged her) Good luck with that. (exiting left)
Instructor: (wtf was the expression on her face)
a BRING YOUR OWN MAT moment
In her novel White Oleander, Jane Fritch suggests that beauty is something to be used, "like a hammer or a key". Thats your assignment, Pisces. Find practical ways to make your beauty work for you. For example, invoke it to help you win friends and influence people. Put it into action to drum up new opportunities and hunt down provocative invitations. And don't tell me you possess insufficient beauty to accomplish these things. I guarantee you that you have more than enough. To understand why I'm so sure, you may have to shed some ugly definitions of beauty you've unconsciously absorbed from our warped culture. - Rob Brezsny of Free Will Astrology
