I went on a work binge in January. I started two new writing projects. When I get going on my "passion projects" I find it hard to stop writing. Feeling inspired by my "day at the office," I went straight home to write all my insights about emotional healing down.
After a month of full days in my therapy space, skipping my weekly free-form dance classes, and writing all evening, my body was feeling mighty stiff and sore. I was getting out of balance.
Recently, I was preparing for an online writing interview series and one of the questions was, "What would you do if you did not write?" And, the surprising thought that came up was..."I would dance more!"
Then a funny thing happened! The next morning, when I was scheduled to record the interview, I ran into both of my beloved dance teachers right outside the door to my therapy office - at the same time!
One dance teacher was sitting in the corner window of the cafe waving at me, and I hugged my other dance teacher on the street! Needless to say, I have shown up to my dance practice faithfully every week since!

I love authentic creative practices, and a big part of my emotional healing has involved writing and telling my true story. I started out discovering my true story in my own private journals in my thirties, I moved on to gradually sharing authentically with the world at large through my online business.
