It’s all about letting go …
My 50 at 50 continues but perhaps a little slower this last week on specific activities.
A few things to report on though. I am continuing with Gandhi’s autobiography and also took another lesson in oil pastels. The header picture of this blog is my latest creation from that. I was quite pleased with the end result, having learnt from the week before to not try too hard and to just let go, the outcome was this lovely lady! The way Jo and Liz teach the class is really amazing and I am really grateful to them both for bringing such skill to the lessons.
I am so enjoying the different energy and space that it gives and how taking time to do that brings in a renewed energy and balance for other things.
The rest of my time has been taken up with work and also with working hard on my new on-line courses. Whilst the Thrive in Life 360 site has been up for a short time, I am pleased to say, with much hard work from the team, we are almost there and ready for a full launch. The next round of online courses are in the making which I am very excited about as they will give easy access and great tools for such a range of people and topics.
The current focus has been on the Thrive in Life Balance and Thrive Back to Work. There has been so much in the press with redundancies and I know how stressful that can be, so that will help people deal with the stress and uncertainty and the get people ready for the job market. And as for the other course – well we all need a bit more balance in life at times!
The next focus is to get a Thrive through Study and Exams up as I have been taken by surprise at the lack of tools that people are given for getting themselves organized with a study plan and having techniques for getting through revision and exams. Time to change that and keep people mentally fit and healthy at the same time!
The other thing to report is that my lovely friend Tanya challenged me to do something completely different that I would never normally consider doing and if she chose something would I agree to do it. Up for the challenge and in a moment of foolishness, I agreed. It was then that she told me what she had in mind! Burlesque dancing lessons!!!!
Her description of dancing lessons whilst holding a feather fan or a glove go nowhere near what I have found now I have had time to research it myself!
However, I said I would do it, so I am sure between us we will have hilarious fun. We will stick to Tanya’s description rather than what I have found on the internet and do something out of my comfort zone.
So, the lesson there people – never agree to do things until you have all the facts!
Have a great week.
