practise, drill, rehearse…………er, fall over!
In my past life, I was a very disciplined and efficient radio executive. Deadlines were met, challenges were welcomed and goals, surpassed………………..in this current incarnation, working with my wonderful husband to lead a very fun and vibrant villa holiday company, I find I’m getting a little rusty, though thankfully, not where the work is concerned!
Today is a very busy day: we’ve holidaymakers arriving in villas in Coral Bay and Peyia and tons to do, so I got up extra earlier and decided to practise my Yoga postures and disciplines to sharpen my mind and body ready for the day………..but its all gone a little pear shaped:
– my sitting dog started to make me sleepy so I had a coffee
– the swan dive almost crippled me and I lost my balance
– reaching to to stretch, I forgot I’d put the cooling ceiling fan on and got an instant and unwelcome part manicure……
Now, I’ve got to give thanks to the sun god and say a prayer for truth……
The truth is, I’m seriously unfit; need so much practise, there isn’t enough time left in the universe to get my bones to do what they need to and my muscles have a mind of their own (or an “on button” which I cannot find!). As to an inverted shoulder stand and flushing out the toxins before the day, cobras to that: I give up! (for now!)
