Achievement #428 - Monk Mentality

I've been reflecting on how short our attention span is lately. Everything around us is designed to hook our attention, pull us on to the next thing, the next thing. As a result, we (myself included) rarely focus deeply on any one thing. And as a result, we miss out on much of the true depth of life, that which can truly satisfy. I've begun to infuse this idea into my morning meditations, and when I'm out and about. With each part of my day, I decide in advance what I would like to focus on -…See More

Achievement #425 - Conquering feelings of inadequacy

Every once and a while, I have a conversation that allows me to do what I love most - hear the frustrations of another, and be invited to offer advice in return. Yesterday was one such occasion - a coworker was feeling she didn't deserve a particularly generous couple she had started teaching, because she felt out of practice with her dancing. After talking for a bit, she realized she had beliefs about worthiness, and I think I gave her a few ideas on how she might lay those beliefs to rest. It…See More

Achievement #422 - Successful meeting

Myself and a fellow instructor had to make a presentation at the general meeting yesterday. We'd put together a basic idea of what we would talk about, but I had several lessons before the meeting, so we couldn't refresh beforehand. Though I was nervous, the presentation went very well, and some very good questions were raised about how our programs should be presented. Which means we have to do it again in two weeks :pSee More

Achievement #421 - An exercise in being social

I tend to enjoy my quiet time, especially on the weekends. So meeting some colleagues of my wife's for brunch, followed by seeing my family for dinner, was definitely a test of my energy. Despite that, I still managed to keep from zoning out (too much) and even learned some things about both groups I didn't learn before. The food was delicious too :)See More

Achievement #418 - Unexpected challenges

Yesterday, the thing I kept being afraid would happen, happened. I went to teach chair dancing at a long-term healthcare centre, and left my speakers at home. There was some panic-y moments en route, but I used the same to select the songs with the loudest beats, and pumped the volume as high as my laptop could allow. The result? It was still a great class, and no one complained about the music.You might say the hardest part was all the stressing I did about it beforehand ;)See More

Achievement #417 - Never giving up

It's been a scary few months for me: Students have been leaving or getting sick faster than new ones have come in, and savings is lower than it's ever been, and tax season is coming up. And yet, never before have I been as determined as I am today. Setbacks which would have made me give up now only make me grit my teeth and try another way. The fears which would have me stay safe within my comfort zone grow a little weaker everyday. And yesterday I filmed another set of instructional videos,…See More

Achievement #414 - Crazy day!

I just wanted to say that yesterday I survived 6 hours of wall-to-wall dancing, plus a workout, and I still found time to get groceries and visit my friend in the hospital. And yes, I do believe I deserved that pizza and wine dinner. Thank you.See More

Achievement #427 - Burst of productivity

I spend 3 hours a week doing analytics work for the studio website. I can be the most boring work there is sometimes, so I often delay until the last minute. Yesterday, I knocked all three hours down. One less thing to stress about for the rest of the week.

Achievement #426 - Reconnecting

Posted on April 20, 2017 at 9:17am 0 Comments

It's been some time since I've really listened to myself. Partly because I didn't feel I could do what my body was asking me to do. A part of me is always wanting to push forward, learn more, try more, and that's beautiful. But it's also exhausting. So this past month I've been recovering from burnout, and that means a lot of relaxation time. Now, I'm glad to finally have some energy again to get back on track with my business and other projects. Here we go!
