A thought on playing a part: If you take on a certain role and act it, you’ll eventually become that person. This is something that I’ve noticed when in theater productions and getting into character, but also when playing the part of yoga teacher in February and March – I became much more fitness-oriented, in killer shape, more health-conscious, relaxed, etc. Kind of like how I always have my yoga class laugh together – even if you don’t mean it, taking yourself through the outward motions changes something inside too. Something to tuck away for the future.
