Not women's heels mind you, but knee high leather pirate boots. I went to our Halloween Party last night as Inigo Montoya, one of my favourite characters from 'The Princess Bride', and to avoid breaking character, I tried to dance all night with boots and a sword! The sword broke off halfway through the night, but I managed to keep the boots on without injury (to myself and others) for the full hour and a half. A worthy investment indeed!

I was stressing a lot last night. I'm having a business meeting in a few hours you see, and mentally, my brain always reacts like I have something to prove. I start to panic and wonder if I can 'sell myself' effectively. Fortunately, I've been reading Deepak Chopra's 'Getting to Know God' (which I highly recommend), and just started reading a section about how our spiritual development eventually moves us from a perspective of competition and struggle to a state of peace. I started thinking…Continue

I have an overdeveloped sense of conscience, meaning if I feel I've breached my integrity in some way, I can't relax until I've repaired the damage and made plan for avoiding doing it again. Yesterday I had one such breach, which hit me immediately after sending a text to my g/f. I realized I'd partially concealed the truth, without consciously meaning to, and immediately texted her again, apologizing and giving the full story. We talked about it more later, when we could both share our…Continue

The Full Moon on October 27, which is also a full Harvest Moon, brings with it a host of promises and blessings that are going to touch relationships. And that’s a good thing for those wishing to see their current relationship status get a little boost, no matter what your current relationship status is. A Full Moon is always about transformation. Release once and for all all the expectations, reactions, behaviors and attitudes that no longer serve you. It's a time of reflection,…Continue

It's never more tempting to spend your time watching cat videos over getting work done, then when you are tired and not feeling well. Despite that however, I managed to get a few things knocked off my to-do list that didn't cost too much energy.

I'm loving this journey!
I connect with my consciousness, and deliberately follow my Spiritual self (who I truly am)
I feel like I'm growing this area. I feel that I'm able to tell others who I am and I strive to allow them to be who they are even if I don't agree with them. I asked my self the question, what would someone who love themselves do?
Be aware of my thoughts and change the core beliefs that are not serving…

There was a big family gathering on my girlfriend's side yesterday to celebrate the 1st birthday of her nephew, Alexander. Often I become a wallflower at these events, but this time I decided to make a stronger effort to meet and talk with people. As I mingled, I started to realize how many members of her family I had gotten to know over the past few years. I felt more a part of the group then I ever had before. It's hard to get to know people you have little in common with - I'm glad I made…Continue

I AM GRATEFUL AND HAPPY WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LAST MONTH...
I often don't have much time during the day for more then a text or two for my g/f. I know she likes hearing from me, but it's difficult when you're either teaching or decompressing from the last class. Yesterday though, we had a little flurry of flirty texting that got us both laughing. When I got home, I found out she'd written me a thoughtful letter. Definitely worth finding the time for that again!

I take responsibility for that which I attract to myself in my life on all counts. Thought, word, deed. As a spiritual being in a physical body living a time/space life in eternity,I attract that which I fear or love or feel that I deserve. By seeking God, and seeking to glorify Him in my thoughts, my words, my deeds... I find that I am deserving of Love not by my works but by the Work Jesus did on the cross for me; deserving of happiness and joy because of His Perfect Love for me;…Continue

It was great to get to a favourite dance social last night. I've been so busy the last few weeks that I haven't been able to attend the west coast swing social. This isn't just for recreation; I'm not as familiar with WCS as other styles, so the social amounts to important practice time as well. I felt rusty, but glad to start catching up again.

When the outside world starts looking like my inside world... I must be on the right path. ^^
Today, instead of reading a dull bus schedule, a message about unicorns was posted on the bus stop instead.
It said: " When a unicorn flies away to return to the sky made of rainbows, it means that she has made you happy. As long as it's not the case, she will stay with you to help you and to love you" <3
I'm loving this travel through childhood lane.…Continue

I finally got around to writing about how people can start overcoming their fear of dancing on the studio blog, something I've been meaning to get to for a long time. I've read a lot about the subject, as I've had to overcome significant barriers in my own life. It's a pleasure to finally share it with others (if you'd like to read the article yourself, click here).
