Heels or Yoga?

8 months into this new life my feet are more used to being in downward dog and not upward corporate mobility and they struggle to crush themselves into high heels… this cruel process is actually a signal to my brain that I am being professional and that I am making every effort to be in work mode… Without the heels I feel like I should be going to yoga in Ugg boots.. And tomorrow is a day of appointments in the city and I shall be perched and hobbling from meeting to meeting 🙂 but probably not in a Kobi Levi creation… although if truth be told I wish I did have a magical Alice-in-Wonderland pair…

Partytime

We had the best party…

My party was inspired by my Eat, Pray, Love year… The eating got off to a massive start… thankfully I don’t run a catering firm as we’d be bankrupt… I figure the average person eats like a wrestling star… so after loads of baking and cooking and then a little more baking and cooking just in case… we also had delivered some delicious catered food… My Praying part of the day started with a yoga session with my niece in tow… and an ab workout that left me praying for an early end to the class… and the Love was the whole weekend… family and friends and just a beautiful heartfelt time and of course my unbelievably uncomfortable but totally divine stripper shoes which I was perched on for most of the night until the souls of my feet started praying for their redemption… What a fabulous night…. French bubbles early… it was the best party I have ever had… I did end up weeping through my speech – so much for introducing humour and lightness… Like my horoscope said I need to relax into the magic and just whoosh along.

Certitude

Yesterday was a big day for me – it was the first presentation to a 10-person executive team in my new iteration as Curve of the World talking about People and Culture… Something dreadful happens to me when I get anxious – I berate myself and talk myself down and make the experience unbearable… So yesterday instead of working myself into an anxious and worthless knot, I snuck off for an hour of yoga at midday… from virtue cards at the reception desk I picked Certitude – truth be known I had no idea what it meant… to be without doubt in one’s capability… and so I took this into the rest of the day and out to the meeting… with the hope that I would rest in the comfort of finding a confidence in what I have to offer whatever the outcome of the meeting… So perched on the most beautiful of heels I delivered the presentation without too much sweating and gnashing of teeth and teetered out of there with delight and grace that this was a first for Curve of the World and I had survived…
