Newsletter No.24 - Pause
Hello, everyone. I hope you have been well. In Adelaide, the weather has been changing and I suddenly realised many leaves turning into beautiful vibrant red and yellow. I love autumn as it is like saying goodbye to hot sweaty days and welcoming the cold into the body.
How has your April been? Mine has been super hectic and it felt to me that I did not have space and moment to breathe. I have been pushing myself until the work is done. I planned my community dancing space last week, but I had to cancel it partially because I was just so exhausted. I felt guilty to cancel it as some people had planned to commit to come. However, In the end, I was fulfilled with happiness and had space to just let my hair down.
In May, I will pause my other two favourite sessions – “Move & Connect” and “Practitioner’s Learning Circle” just because around the planned sessions, I may not have access to the internet due to moving to a new house. I may ask you for feedback, so that I can come up with a better structure and organisation in June. I think now it is ok for me to say, “Let me pause.” I allow myself for fresher breathing and a comeback.
