I'm so excited to start my Season 12 100 Day Challenge! This morning I listened to Stuart Wilde, wrote down my affirmations to challenge myself for 30 days within this challenge. I will be focusing on having more fun! I will pick something fun each date to keep my vibrations high. I'm not sure what I will do today but it should be fun...lol. Have a wonderful day!

Finished filming for the first 7 tango steps yesterday! We're getting faster now, managed to correct some things we'd missed in the previous 2 sessions - and still got out an hour early! Hoping we can get 2 different dances done at once in future sessions.

Yesterday provided an opportunity for me to take stock of my life in recent months. I realized that, thanks to me ongoing dance project, I've been working harder these past few months than I ever have in my life. But at the same time, I don't regret the work - in fact, this has been the longest time in years I've one without ending my days feeling guilty, as if I'd missed my potential. There was also a recognition of how much I've done to get here, and wonderment at the seeming randomness of…Continue

Moving forward on yet another project: Making a compilation video of people of all ages and walks of life, dancing in various settings, having fun, messing up, and enjoying themselves - to show people that dance doesn't have to be scary, and if these people can do it, they can too. Yesterday I worked with my wife's very accommodating parents, and while they had trouble with it at first, they gradually worked it out. Lots of great smiles and laughs!

I learned about a new way of speaking I'd like to permanently add to my social toolkit: Action-based language. The idea is to express all challenges in terms of how to move beyond them, rather than focusing on past events that led up to them. Obviously this won't work for every situation, but I've had it explained that it can be very effective, especially when dealing with very goal-oriented people.

I've been planning on messaging a student who's been absent a great deal, and whom I've suspected is frustrated with my style of teaching. I finally sent out a very tactful email yesterday. I was rewarded with a response - she finally explained what's been bothering her. I'm not sure whether she will continue lessons with me or not, but at least now we can move towards a resolution.
