This is, perhaps, one of the most exciting times in my entire life. I am paving the way to begin walking an entirely new path toward new goals and it feels great. I am probably busier than I’ve been since my children were little, but I have stores of energy, and tons of enthusiasm that keep me going each day. I have a supportive partner….two supportive partners, really….and I feel like a million bucks.
One thing that I’m doing that might seem a little wacky for a woman my age, is I’m taking a singing masterclass from Christina Agulara. Yep. You read that correctly.
While I do have a strong singing voice and I do sing, from time to time, I do not aspire to be a famous pop star. Instead, I am taking the class to learn her teaching approach and methods. Virtually everything I do these days is to prepare for my new business, and this is far from all I am doing .
I have found a dedicated business partner who complements those areas that I lack, and I complement hers as well. We are planning our first workshop/retreat for next April, and it is exciting indeed! I’m running around like crazy looking at venues, working on marketing, taking pictures, writing curriculum, developing products, writing …writing…writing…networking…making new business connections.
A lot of my workshops will be centered around music and musicians (as this is an important, special part of my life,) so I am learning the inner bones….the when, where, why and how of the technical aspects. Those things, combined with my background in psychology are what have me so geared up and ready to go with these workshops.
While I do have my masters in psychology, I am now actively working to enhance that with life coaching certification classes from the Integrative Wellness Academy. I feel that the two credentials integrated will help me with my workshops. Should take a few months to earn my certification.
In other news….my songwriting efforts are progressing in leaps and bounds, as is my guitar playing. Taking classes for both. I have really had a breakthrough and feel as though I am soaring. I am so happy. I love my life. Honestly. It is a good life, one that is far from perfect, but that is filled with and operated by love. I could not ask for a better and more supportive family-family AND family of friends. Being confident in my love is a wonderful feeling.
I have signed up for a new yoga program that will also be integrated into our workshops. I am making art by the hour. I am on a roll…..like butta. Man, this is good. I have never felt happier. Love helps. 😉 It is what I live for.
