Telling this story has been surprising. The look of shock on friends and family’s faces, as well as fellow teacher’s, has been priceless. Invariably the look fades into peels of laughter as the contradiction of my long standing career as a yoga teacher clashes with the thought of me working in a department store. As the laughter subsides, the idea starts to seems obvious, but only because my friend Carola pointed it out in the first place. It certainly wasn’t before that day in early November.
I was born to sell. I was also born to be a lawyer, an accountant, a yoga teacher and a choreographer. There’s nothing like having options, and I’m glad I was able to hear my dear friend as she showed me what I could not see.
This article was as fun to write as it was to tell in person. Thanks to Seattle Yoga News for helping me get this story “out there.” See link below to read the article hosted on SYN site.
