January blues – me?
Well yes... and January highs... and all the bits in between.
The start to the New Year has provided me with every mood & emotion going.
At times I’ve felt overwhelmed, doubted my own abilities as a teacher and a person.
I’ve had some successes...
Like finishing off major projects that were hanging over my head from last year, paying my tax bill on time and getting my little studio teaching space ready.
January has felt like a whirlpool of weather systems mixed into one.
And the beauty and wonder of all this, is that THIS IS LIFE.
The full spectrum of emotions, the swinging pendulum of moods.
The inner quiet struggles and the louder external outbursts.
I have at times neglected to respond to emails and messages in a timely manner.
If you have been on the delayed receiving end of this – I AM SORRY.
The inner turbulent start to 2022 has taught me to go back to basics.
What tools have I learnt to help me ride the waves when they get uncomfortable and choppy?
Find my feet.
Move my body.
Allow the space that is needed to let things bubble or dip and be grateful I feel all of it, because it means I AM ALIVE.
I am looking forward to February, the New Moon, the Chinese New Year and another chance to re-affirm those intentions I put out there at the start of the year.
And I’m humbled, pleased and grateful that life throws this stuff at me, as this is how I grow and how I become even better at teaching mindfully and helping others.
I am human.
I am not perfect…
.. but I love it that way.
If you resonate with any of this then come along to class and let’s ride those waves of life together.
Thank you for reading.
