With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I’ve been seeing more tweets and Facebook status updates lately that deal with thankfulness. That got me thinking about yoga – not that it takes a whole lot for my thoughts to gravitate that way – and I will say that one of the best things about being a yogi is that it leads you to meet some very cool people you may not have crossed paths with otherwise. They’re not always people you would think you would meet in the context of a yoga community either. As one quick example, I found an amazing accountant – a guy I would recommend to anyone looking for tax help — because we both take classes at Hilltop Yoga. (This is where I should note that I have major tax anxiety. As a former newspaper reporter, I have two things going against me when it comes to taxes: (1) math has never been my favorite subject and (2) I live and breathe deadlines, so I tend to avoid doing my taxes until about 10 p.m. on April 15 of any given year.)
I can’t end this blog post until I thank you, the reader, for visiting. Whether you’re here accidentally, or here following a link from somewhere else and don’t plan on returning, or whether you are a regular reader of this blog – I am thankful that our paths have crossed, even at least momentarily.
On that note — enjoy the holiday! As a meat-eating yogi – we are more common than you think – I hope you enjoy copious amounts of turkey, wine and good times.
