After many years of being ruled by my head I decided that I need to give equal focus to the Heart, Hands, and Head.
How did I do in January?
Bits and pieces, not good at concentrating on one book at a time and found that I am not alone in that department http://www.theconfidentintrovert.com/2011/01/12/addicted-to-ideas/
Silence as much as possible.
Cesar Millan “The Dog Whisperer”. This bloke must have been a dog in a past life.
Nothing at the moment, but thinking about knitting squares for Wrap With Love.
Blogging – meeting lots of different people from lots of different places with lots of good ideas.
How to accommodate another year of study with kids and work, and decided that I am going to take it easy on myself and just study one subject this semester. My youngest boy started at school and despite his bravado, the indications are that he is going to need a non-stressed, not-too-flat-out mum. So, I have planned my work hours so the boys only need to be at after school care one afternoon per week, and told the boss that I am no longer going to work 50 hours per week for 18 hours pay. No-one believed me when I told them I was not going to be a workaholic this year. I’m going to sign up to do reading help at the school.
Finally received my resources, and I am learning Arabic, slowly. I can ask someone if they want a drink of water or a kebab (hehehe). Unfortunately the Arabic I am learning is a bit different to my friend’s dialect but we are having interesting conversations about it, and she laughs at my Aussie accent, saying “you sound just like my kids”.
Qi Gong every day.
Patting and talking to the dogs every day.
Watering the plants. Picking the cabbage moth grubs off the seedlings and relocating them.
To practice guitar.
To art journal.
A learning institution where I can do psychoanalytical studies.
To breathe, one breath at a time.
