Sometimes the wrong turns out just right.
I walked into the yoga studio, and after saying hello, the instructor informs me that class might be cancelled today. Instantly, I felt a little down. I had picked out a new place, woke up early, and drove 30 minutes to do a hot power class, and now I was being told it probably wasn’t going to happen. I knew I should have picked a different studio! Since I was early I decided to wait around a bit. I searched Google to see if there were any other studios in the area. Nothing close by. The instructor then informed me that she was just a substitute and wasn’t even prepared to teach a hot vinyasa class. I sunk a little bit lower, but I was still going to wait until 9 am to see if anyone else would arrive. Just then, three more people showed up and class was back on! I ended up practicing for free and got to take a mat home with me. The studio was going to take a bunch of left-behind mats to Salvation Army, and the instructor offered one to me. What a morning! And, to top things off, an organic grocery store/deli/juice bar appeared on a map just minutes up the road!
With juice in hand and Rod Stewart’s new album, “Time”, on the stereo I was ready for the rest of my day. With a little patience what could have been a disastrous morning took a turn for the best and put a smile on my face.
It’s only wrong when you decide it’s wrong, when you give up on making it right.
