Dive In

Out of my comfort zone, I am diving into uncharted waters.......I don't teach the day after treatment, that is normal.  It's the thought of not teaching at all next week, that is making me a little antsy.  We are such creatures of habit aren't we?

I have been reading about habits......good and bad. It is interesting, that changing a habit creates the same chemical reaction in the brain as withdrawal from substance abuse. No wonder even the simplest change in habit is so difficult.  And then there is the book that I have already read twice, The War of Art.
Complications abound........changing habits, using my creative head is spinning.

What I do know, my body needs rest, my brain needs a change of venue, my spirit needs nourishment.
I bet it is safe to say that most of you who are reading this blog tonight need all of the above.  If you don't, lucky you.

So what am I going to do?  Read, sit out doors, get some sun......let go of a few "have to's"......just for a few teaching, no practicing, no house work, no gardening.  I may scream, maybe cry.....or.......I might just enjoy myself!  Will keep you posted.  In the meantime, let's make this a joint venture......let go of something the next few doesn't have to be a permanent change, just try to let go......change a habit....use your creative energy.....come on, I dare you!  Dive right in, we'll do this together.
