Buh bye!

Today was my last as a Macy's corporate whore. Officially laid off...about time...they told us 6 months ago we were toast.

I can now enjoy the summer. Yeah!!

I'm standing in a room that I've mostly reclaimed (got rid of lots of stuff). I can do lessons in this room soon. I'm sure I'll learn a lot about restoring/replacing wood flooring in the meantime. It can't be too hard?

There...I just saved 60-100 grand by not trying to change my attic into a livable space :-)

This is a time for myself to be more present in my being. Having let go of stuff (guaranteed salary and a room full of clutter) a void has been created. Will my behaviours tend toward the known to quickly find an equilibrium?

In lessons it's important to allow the nervous system a chance to familiarize itself with new movement patterns, with rest. The kind of rest where you lie in the position you initially came back to, without any stretching, ruffling, straightening, or any other means to find an older, more familar resting position.

It's a way of teaching us to be comfortable with the unknown.
