Just as I was among the first to arrive, I was also one of the last to leave. My heart was heavy. I had found so much peace and joy during my time in the sun and I so dreaded returning to the craziness of the city life. I was afraid I would return to my old habits and continue feeling lost.
As fate would have it, I was actually given the opportunity to stay. As our pole camp drifted out, a yoga pole camp began to start trickling in. I met the owner of the camp as well as some of the teachers and began connecting with them instantly. Turned out, we had plenty of mutual friends. I continued to talking to the owner and then out of nowhere, he offered me a free ride to stay for the yoga camp. I was shocked. I had been manifesting the law of attraction in my life. All of the sudden, I was being offered a free yoga camp in Greece! Not only that, but he offered that I began studying yoga, he'd more than likely hire me in a heart beat!
I was stunned. I had just began practicing integrating the law of attraction into my life and it already seemed to be taking affect. I didn't want to leave Greece and I was suddenly being offered a free ride and a potential future job! I had the whole day to think about the prospect.
Here, I would love to say I stayed an extra week and became a traveling yogi. I certainly considered it heavily. However, responsibility called to me. I would have had to cancel my flight and re-book a new ticket. Not only that, but I had left my dog to the care of my roommate and didn't feel it was fair to give him an extra week of responsibility. I also had a company to run and had been producing a brand new show that was supposed to go up the day after I returned. As much as I wanted to be irresponsible and blame fate and attraction for it, I knew I had duties back home.
By the time it got dark, I sat under the porch lights reading my book knowing that I had to follow through with the decision I had made. The yoga camp instructor came up to me a few minutes before the taxi van came to pick me up and asked what I had decided. He hand me his phone and said I could call the airport right then and there to reschedule my flight. With an unwilling heart, I declined the offer, sad, but knowing that if it was meant to be, the opportunity or something similar to it would return when the time was right in a responsible manner.
He was bummed, but I was even more bummed. All the same, I knew I had made the right decision. The taxi cab arrived and I began to head home.
