It’s the first week back to work after the holidays. It was a full on week at work and I’m glad it was a 4-day week. It’s currently Sunday morning and I’m sitting in bed, watching TV, relaxing from this week. Getting some well-needed self-care time. One of my resolutions for this year is to take better care of myself and make sure that I take some time out for myself to recharge my batteries.
Walking to the studio yesterday I was really excited to get back into teaching again. I didn’t realise how much I missed teaching. It felt so good being back in the studio. In true Jen fashion, I came back teaching all the way. four hours back to back teaching, to ‘ease’ me into the new year.
Two classes and a workshop to start the new year off. After my 10am class I was teaching a workshop and during the intention setting part of the workshop I felt really empty. I can’t describe it any other way. It’s almost like I had nothing to say to myself and no intentions for myself, there was just nothing inside of me. I’m not even sure why I was feeling that way. Sitting here on my bed, writing this I started to feel the same. This was until I just admitted this to myself and was truthful to myself. It’s all about being truthful to yourself and acknowledging when you’re not feeling your best.
We are human beings, we are not perfect and we are not supposed to be. Our imperfections make us who we are. And we don’t have to feel positive or good all of the time. It’s ok to feel down about something, we just have to make sure that we dust ourselves off and keep going. We are alive and we should be making the best of what we have.
I’m now going to meditate for a bit and then get out of my bed and start getting things sorted in the house and prepare for the week.
Until next week,
