I have a confession. While I was born in (and spent most of my life in) California, I haven't lived up to my true California girl stereotyped potential.
But I'm rectifying that with my recent foray into the world of surfing (not for me)
Two days ago, I tried yoga for the first time.
Before I always thought, "Pssh! I don't need to PAY someone for glorified stretching."
Tut tut, silly Rachael. Now I realize it's one of the rarest-of-rare activities that both encourages physically (and mentally) connecting with your body while not stressing your body.
Most of the time when I'm aware of my body it's either to work it out (feels good after but...), to berate it ("I wish I were..." and fill in the blank) or to feed it.
So far, yoga has begun to foster a love for my body (not proportional or in relation to what it can or can't do). I'm finding that I'm even beginning to love my imperfections. No other activity has given me that.
Anyways, that's surfing, yoga... I'm already vegetarian. Guess that just leaves plastic surgery.
What else is a stereotyped California thing in your mind?
Have you tried yoga?
