JAN 21-FEB 18
Your plans will be bigger and
bolder than ever, but in your
haste to get started you could
overlook an important detail.
Take your time and get it right.

It was possibly the most ackward situation of my life.

In the elevator with one of the VPs from work and he asks me why I’m not coming to yoga anymore. “It’s not in the budget” I said (I’d rehearsed that – I knew this might happen). He looked surprised. “It’s just not in the cards right now.” He said your health should be your number 1 priority, and I said I agreed. I said I have a nanny to pay for and “Life is expensive”. I said I’d be back. I was sure glad when the elevator reached the bottom, and I hope he realizes how awkward that conversation was. Especially after receiving pay cuts last month. Actually it went fairly well – I held my own - but I’d rather not talk to the VP of our company about my financial situation.
