Keep it Fun and continue on…

Keep it Fun and continue on…

I’ve always been one to further my knowledge, with an intense curiosity, a need for new and better skills, by sometimes skimming the surface and more completely by diving deep, adding to that bulging treasure chest overflowing with gems of knowledge, desires, techniques, playlists, love, and all the connections that go with, of which some is being downsized, but it is always a continuing and exciting part of my exquisite life! Making more space for the newness…

I have made incredible acquaintances, some long-lasting friendships and some fleeting but fabulous moments  through courses, mastermind groups, like-minded gatherings, and that soooo feeds my soul. Sometimes I have had to step out of my comfort zone to gather up courage to meet someone I wanted to know, to introduce myself, to sign up for something I knew was what I wanted and needed. But I know when someone or something is presented to me, it is time to listen up and do it… I’m not a good waiter, I usually act on my instincts right away, (or sometimes I give myself 3 days to make a decision!). If I flounder, I feel like I am not stepping up to myself, not going after what I want, not getting what I need and desire. And that does not make for a happy and fulfilled Paulette.

Do you know that feeling? That questioning? That “is this right for me” thought, and then you go in circles like a hamster on a wheel? That is when I lay it out for myself, trusting my gut and my first reactions, I like to write down the pros and cons… and balance it out. Take a stand and go for it, either way. Without the waffling back and forth. That drives me crazy if I get to that indecisive place. Those 3 days are good for percolating, but then you need to make a choice and move on.

Life is too short and so incredible. I am in constant awe. I am learning more and more each day to go after what I want, and what I need. For instance, this year, I worked and wrote intensely for months, developing my new online certification programs. I was on fire with them, engaged and inspired, and excited. Knowing this was part of my life’s work, knowing the importance of being able to offer these online. Letting my heart pour out into the courses, allowing myself to be the medium for knowledge to pass through, to hand out and guide you with.

My dance has always been that way, especially back in the early days, the days of initiation, of inspired study and action. I literally let the movements come through my body, not quite knowing where they were coming from, but trusting my heart, and trusting in source, spirit, and the ancient wisdom our bodies carry. This Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance ®  is so inspired from the women who danced before us, from the creative womb of all womankind, honoring the triad of women–maiden, mother, crone. And I have been all of those now, as I enter my crone years. As I danced it, made it mine, made it ours, for all to dance now, it felt so spirit-driven, so necessary, so connected, so in communion with what was and what is today, and what can be tomorrow. I was the channeler. And I never doubted it, I just did it. I moved it all forward, and quickly, with grace and ease. If there was fear or insecurities, I just pushed that aside and cruised on down the road. Or shimmied in this case.

I digress! While I value the delights of hard work, I realize that one must make other time in one’s life, other than work — down time, fun time, creative time, personal time, dance time, away from work time, (even when work is pleasurable). So I signed up for an art journaling class, creative inspiration time, for ME… once done and committed, to make time to follow through, to do the course, and to have FUN! Gotta lighten up the load and reach in deep for some soul felt fun for just me!  To take me to a different place, to keep my creative juices flowing, in yet another way. And that is sexy, and feels great, so I can move forward in all the other parts of my life too.

We can all get into other things that are time sucks and take us away from what we are truly desiring to do. But when it is the right choice, it just feels so…delicious… and so right.

And then…

Schedule, discipline and desire...yep, that’s what we need to do this thing! Commitment to oneself! And commitment to follow through. Now that is powerful, and beautiful, and soulful and sexy…

Because this thing, these things, for me — like going to the gym, doing my daily power hour, are what fulfill me, help me continue on, make me happy, make me feel good… and that is the ultimate goal, the epitome of desireTo feel good!

Of course there are other feelings that go with that accomplished ‘thing’ — pride, resourceful, prosperous, grounded, knowledgeable, healthy, whatever…

but feeling good is life. When you feel good, everything works, you are in alignment with yourself, with the universe. You can feel your connection, and your reason for being here… Feeling good allows you to live the pieces of your puzzle with surety, strength, resilience, joy, and move forward in the world. That’s what I’m talking about…

So, now, my friends, what is it you’ve been wanting? Do you know? What have you been waiting to do? What are you desiring for your most fabulous self? Let’s make this coming year full of love and passion and living with excitement, growth, prosperity, love and connections. Let’s do it together! I am here for you and full on ready and excited to dance, coach, and make things happen! You are so part of my life, my growth, my business, and my reason. We have this intimate relationship, you and me. And our tribes. Special. Growing. 

And so I invite you to join me, let’s venture into the new year with our desires — meeting, growing, as we dance with and build onto and into our relationships, our business, our lives. Do those things you desire. Now. take the time for you, so enjoy, have fun, shimmy onward.

with so much love here for you…and excitement about our journey…
