Yesterday I faced a unique challenge in my salsa class: a student who's danced for a long time, a student with only a little experience, and a student with no experience at all. I got around it by teaching more fundamental steps, but giving more styling tips to the more experienced dancer. Everyone seemed to learn and enjoy themselves as a result.

Going to be my first summer in the big city. I hope that the summer heat is kind this year. I have plans to ride the train to the beach on my own once I find a big beach towel. The city will be so alive during the summer.
Today, I took a leap of faith and contacted a dude who currently works at my dream job. A response would be nice. Networking with people can be quite funny especially when you haven't ever seen the person you are emailing. Maybe I have passed him on the streets and…Continue

I feel great! Listening to Abraham Hicks always puts me into a great mood. I'm so thankful for my good smelling candles and a body spray my son got me for Mother's Day. I'm also thankful for a bottle of wine my friend got me to. I'm thankful for the wonderful changes coming into my experience. Life is getting better and better! I feel loved!!!

I've had a run of cancellations from various students lately, from sickness, procrastination, and work obligations. After the latest one yesterday, I was tempted to validate myself with thoughts about unfairness and being a victim. Instead, I watched those thoughts and feelings, without judgement. I recognize this is a pattern, one that ultimately does not serve me. But I knew resisting it would only make it stronger. So, I simply watched, and in time the feelings subsided. I went to bed…Continue

Some mornings I feel so burnt out I just want to relax in front of the computer and play video games. The problem is, those games usually bleed into the afternoon as well, and I'm left feeling discouraged about a wasted day. Yesterday began that way, but I used a lesson at 2pm to break the pattern and refocus myself on work. And I actually got some important things done before the evening. So it felt like I'd gotten a chance to recharge, and a chance to be productive.

I'm so thankful for this Friday morning! I'm almost done with my season 11 challenge and I feel so good! I'm happy to be constantly learning new ways to keep myself in alignment with Source! The most important thing to me is to feel good and I accomplished that. I'm very proud of myself! I hope everyone have a wonderful weekend!!! : )

I attended a networking event for young professionals last night. This is always a nerve-wracking experience for me, because I encounter a lot of people who represent very different walks of life and want to make a good impression. At one point, the effort of focusing on conversation got so exhausting I had to excuse myself to use the washroom, but I persevered. In the end, I got business cards from two people interested in the promo offer from my website, and connected with one person who…Continue

Finished editing the second instructional video, covering the first three steps of Rumba. Two down, two to go before my promotional offering is finished, which I can use to start generating a larger email list.

I was stuck in an unusual situation yesterday evening: I had nothing to do! Neither of my two group classes ran, and my computer ran out of juice, so for a few minutes I was at a bit of a loss. There was a feeling of fear I hadn't expected, a fear of time passing and things not being accomplished. But then again, I remembered there's always SOMETHING I could do... Even if it was as simple as meditating. As it happened, I decided to practice my kizomba and bolero, which kept me busy and happy…Continue

Early morning gym session followed by a brisk walk behind an overly perfumed person. Surprisingly chilly today. Made an interesting discovery on my vision map. I cut out a picture of a pressed juice about a year ago from a magazine. Now, I realize the cut out picture of the juice bottle is where I ended up working at for about a week. Funny how things manifest off vision maps/boards.
I have a promising new job as a video editor for a company I love. I start on May 22. Cool how new…Continue

I reflected this morning on the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, when he described the reducing of the aliveness of another human being to a concept as 'a form of violence'. It occurred to me as I wrote and reflected that it was just a form of violence; it was the gateway by which all other forms occur. Only after a human has filtered out the humanity of another can they be violent to them in other ways - otherwise it would be like doing violence to themselves. It was both an exercise in…Continue

Guess who received her missing package back safely? Yes, this gal. Last week I posted a blog about my missing package and my absolute frustration of not having it. I absolutely felt a whirlwind of emotions from sadness and defeat to laughing at my own misfortune.
I simply asked the Universe for me to move on and move forward. Losing a package was not something to lose my mind over. I still have good health and a good life. Well, after my release of frustration, I walked downstairs to…Continue

Good group class yesterday - a couple follower's were having trouble getting out of their own heads, and kept anticipating movements before they were led. By going slowly and pausing at places where they had the most trouble, we managed to make some real progress. One of them said she felt 'much calmer' about following those patterns by the end compared to before the lesson.

I just had a revelation I wanted to share. I tend to try and view things that happen in life as potential lessons we can use to get more good stuff and avoid the bad stuff, to put it simply. But what I realize is, it's very easy to start attributing intention to these things, as though they are 'meant' to teach us something. And then I grow upset when life seems to be trying to teach us too much at once. We call life unfair, cruel, harsh. Yet it's me who gave meaning to these things,…Continue

I went kizomba dancing for the first time in a while yesterday. I've been learning with my wife in private lessons, but haven't had a chance to test them out in the real world. I was surprised by how nervous I felt on my way there! Nevertheless, I had a great time, and got a much better idea of where I needed improvement, and what steps worked best with beginners vs advanced dancers.

Yesterday I tackled another thing I've been procrastinating about for my business: Video blogging. I'm not yet entirely comfortable in front of the camera, and it took a long time to get everything set up the last time I did this, so it's not my favourite thing. This time however, I had a much simpler setup, and picked a topic I was more familiar with. I got it done in record time.

Friday someone stole my package from my apartment mailbox area. Not sure what lowlife decided they wanted my package that I saved up for but I have no idea what the mind f a thief is like. I felt all emotions of madness to weakness. But I decided to seek forgiveness because I really hate feeling hate towards anyone. It sucks to have the emotion of anger. It feels really refreshing to laugh about the situation and move forward.
I hope the thief who stole my…Continue
