This has been a bit of a crazy week. Last weekend, I had Teacher Training Weekend #8. There was a lot of introspective discussion and personal growth activities to help us to look inward at the direction of our lives. For some reason, I found this to be a particularly difficult weekend to handle, and all the self-discovery really made me quite emotional. On Monday at work, we got some terrible news about a friend of a co-worker. Also, our courier informed me that his cat (whom he has had for 15 years) was in surgery and things didn't look good for the outcome. These two things, combined with my emotional state left over from the weekend, made me feel very down. All of a sudden, a good friend of mine, and former co-worker, walked through the door for a surprise visit! That was all I needed to completely break down into tears. We ended up having a nice visit, but the first day of my week was mostly not a happy one.
The week ended up getting a bit better - my husband, brother-in-law and his wife came to my Tues night class at Live With Spirit, so it was great to have some happy support there with me. I had asked the class to send out some positive and healing energy to someone who they knew who might neeed it, and my sister-in-law later informed me that she had sent hers to me! I think it worked because by the end of the class, I felt very strong and grateful.
The rest of my week went quite a bit better. I taught my 2nd private class, had a nice visit with my Grandparents, picked up a new purse, and enjoyed some unseasonably warm weather.
For anyone wondering, the private class I began teaching last week went really well, and seems like a nice group of women. I think I'll enjoy watching their practice week after week.
Here's hoping this coming week is better than the last!
