I am awake a little earlier than I have been lately and I’m feeling fairly good, even before my first coffee. I haven’t written in a couple of days…I haven’t felt like I had much to write about.
I found something awesome on Instagram yesterday – a flow artist I follow is offering a sizable 25% off discount for her online classes. She teaches silk veil fans in the flow arts style, which is what I am completely after. Being very new at silk fans, I don’t really know the potential of what I can do with them. Classes from an experienced artist and performer are a perfect idea. She also offers choreography in her lessons to get you started on transition moves. My husband bought the class bundle for me yesterday as a (very early) anniversary gift. I started watching and playing last night and what a difference it has already made!
My husband and I are celebrating our seventh wedding anniversary on September 27th this year. Time has flown by. It’s wild to think how we’ve been together for eight years and married for almost seven. He’s the love of my life, and I’m looking forward to my lifetime with him. My marriage to my husband has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
We have another heat advisory in effect today – almost the third day in a row. I’m hoping the weather starts cooling down a bit soon. I love being outside, but this heat is too much. It has a lot to do with the humidity level where I live, too.
Today I feel a sense of gratitude for life. I am glad this week is much different than last week so far. I am trying to soothe the parts of me that are struggling, listen to them, and talk with them to see if I can help. I am working again on grounding meditations and shamanic practices. It feels wonderful. I think belly dancing and fan flow are helping me get more in touch with my body. Perhaps that might help with my derealization in the future. When I left these practices behind, I know I struggled more in life and felt a little like free falling – which is not a good feeling for me. I’m going to strive to stay in touch with my flow arts, my shamanic and meditation practices, and my body.
What are you striving for?
