I'm Difficult - But In A Good Way

Do you remember the scene in When Harry Met Sally where Sally finds out her ex-boyfriend is getting married and Harry tries to console her?

You don't?

OK, well I've seen the movie enough times I can quote it for you:

Sally: What's the matter with me?
Harry: Nothing.
Sally: I'm difficult.
Harry: You're challenging.
Sally: I'm too structured, I'm completely closed off.
Harry: But in a good way.

It's time I admit it, I am a Sally Albright. I'm difficult, challenging and structured.

But, see, I get Sally. I understand her. She can't help herself. Neither can I.

And as I delve deeper into my yoga studies and learn more about Ayurveda, I realize it's true. I really can't help myself. I was born this way.

I'm a pitta dosha and we pittas can be difficult and challenging. But we're also the ones you want in charge because we get things done.

What's a pitta? What's a dosha?

Well I'm not going to give it all away here!  PLEASE click over to my Elephant Journal page to read my latest post Trying Not To Be Such A Pain In The Ass: An Ayurvedic Newbie Attempts to Balance the Doshas.
