A quick hit...

This weekend was the Southern belle Swing Bash in Atlanta. I got to see tons of my Atlanta Dance buddies, take some great classes, and social dance with more leads than just Phillip. I really made a poor decision choosing the Advanced track, I should have chosen the Masters class, but I am glad that I did not have to contend with giant Wanna-Be Lindy RockStar (heretofore know as WBLR) egos all weekend. Evita's classes were amazing Saturday, and I am literally hurting in muscles that have not been worked over in years. I took up two journal pages alone in things to work/think on in my dance-life.

Today I learned that I do not do well with lack of control, it makes a tingly feeling start between my shoulder blades, and causes me to become nauseous. I start to feel overwhelm with them increases my anxiety level. This sucks, to say the least and I don't really know how to stop this visceral reaction to stressors. Sometimes we lack control , and I used to be more adaptable and flexible. What happened, I don't know. But I really want to do something to relieve that bottomless pit feeling I just got earlier when things spiralled out of my control.

I have decided that I need to become more mindful and aware of my day to day life, to record my trials/tribulations/and overall lessons that come to play out. I am going to try to keep better track npt only in my personal paper journal, but to share my life more on this blog. I think being accountable on this space will help me to grow as a person and blogger. So hopefully there will be more crafting to share, but be aware that I am going to take this farther than just my CraftLife, that I am going to include my DanceWorld, KnitLife, GreenLiving, and FeministThoughts. I hope you will bear with me as I try to embark on a new bloggy journey
