Hi it’s me again from a lazy Sunday afternoon. You might be happy to know that I’m feeling quite jolly today, but that wasn’t the case for the earlier part of my week.
I’m trying my best to be compassionate with myself and give myself a few days to just be, even though there is a part of my brain that is always belittling myself for not being as productive as I think I should be. Regardless, I think I’ve come out of this week on top and that makes me believe I’ve done the right thing by taking it easy. Even if I have been the laziest person on earth.
Matt is out of town this weekend for work, and usually this makes me feel completely at loose ends, but I’ve at least kept with my goal of being more social and it’s done wonders for my state of depression. The next time you see me stuck in a slump, please remind me that being around people won’t turn me into dust.
Friday night I went with a group of friends and co-workers to a puzzle room called the Perplexium. If you haven’t done one of these rooms, I would highly suggest it, but don’t expect to come out feeling smarter. While at times frustrating, it was a really cool experience . I can’t wait to go back and try out the fairy tale themed puzzle that their opening in a few weeks.
I started out my Saturday morning with teaching my toddler dance class. Teaching 8 kids between the ages of 4 and 6 is definitely an experience that will keep you in the moment. I pray every week that this will be the week where no one has to go to the bathroom, because once says they have to go, they all have to go. And its really difficult to keep a class going and to shuttle toddlers to the potty one at a time. I feel like my patience has really gotten stronger and they sure do make me laugh.
I was a little restless Saturday afternoon and was relieved when a friend said she was on her way over to lee me company. Before I knew it, several other of my girlfriends were over and a Saturday night in sweats watching Outlander became one of the most fun nights I’ve had in a long time. Oh, if the drinking me from five years ago could see me now!
Today has been all about resting, reading, and relaxing, which is just what I needed. This afternoon I am going to Hardish Bodies rehearsal to dance and that always puts me in the best mood. Body rolls and booty pops do the body and soul good.
This week I’m determined to get back to walking, meditating and journaling- now that my souls feel comfy in my body again.
I’m hoping I can take all these laughs I’ve had this weekend and use them as fuel for the next few days.
Hope your weekend is wonderfully beautiful!
