I may have had a little whimpering self-pity fest this morning. I woke up from a nightmare where I was stuck re-writing my entire group assignment because nobody else had done their work. This isn’t all that far from the truth. Additionally I was stressing about collecting a parcel from the post office in Fitzroy and couldn’t find anyone to give me a lift — I’ve already had one parcel returned to Taiwan last week, and I was worried it would happen again! And because I was faffing around I’d missed the 8am Bikram session and couldn’t make the 10am session because I had a meeting scheduled at lunchtime. And I was potentially going to have to spend my afternoon re-writing my group assignment. Not what I wanted!
So I stomped around and flailed my arms about and cried because my life should be so perfect and yet shit keeps happening. Then I remembered something one of my little brother’s friends posted on Facebook a while back: life can be fine if you’re not a bitch about it. Out of the mouths of babes…
So I pulled myself together and told myself to stop being such a… bitch? I booked a cab to take me to the post office. $22 dollars for my sanity? cheap! I called my lecturer and she told me not to worry and extended the deadline by another 2 days. Sorted!
My lunchtime meeting — with a French lady art restorer here in Melbourne — was really interesting. After chatting with her for an hour, I went down to the city to meet Supermate Cici.
Somehow the only picture we have taken together since she got here last week, from Sunday night
We hung out for the afternoon, ate some delicious Korean food, and then I went home to get ready for Bikram.
And it turns out, I’m so glad I missed that 8am class. The 8pm class was led by my Bikram-super-crush Josh, and I had a really strong, enjoyable practice. I wasn’t once tired or dizzy the entire time. In fact I came out of the class feeling really refreshed and barely sweating, which feels almost worrying when it’s Bikram!
I have been keeping a sticker diary recently. I have different coloured stickers for my supplements (calcium and krill), medication, Bikram and library. On a good day I should have all 4 — putting up Bikram AND library stickers makes me so happy! And at the very least, I never forget my various pills, because every day I have to put a sticker on it. You may also spot a couple of white stickers… whisper it, it means I ate meat.
This morning’s little breakdown seems so far away. I had a lovely day. I must remember that Life can be fine if you’re not a bitch about it.
