It’s a joy and so relaxing to be physically at Happiness U. The classes are great and it’s a great opportunity for me to do introspection, reassessing what I am doing and where I want to go. I am excited to be a part of Happiness U. I look forward to attending more offerings for the coming months ahead.
It’s been a stretch, but my goal was to attend as many classes as I could this month. I always go on the assumption that if someone didn’t have the something of value that they wanted to share, then they wouldn’t be presenting a class. All of my classes were enjoyable and educational. It’s also been nice to walk and drive around the neighborhood as I look for parking. People at the classes are friendly and it’s always enjoyable meeting new people. The meditation classes have been great and I’ve been trying to pay more attention to my posture and breathing.
I’ve been thinking of my original goal of cleaning up my clutter. I started with my stuff at my mom’s house and got rid of some stuff there. I plan to go again this month. My wife is leaving on a trip to Japan at the end of September. Since I will not be going with her, I plan to clean clutter then. I have about a month. I’m not sure why, but I just can’t do it with her here.
I was able to attend more classes this month so didn’t view as many Facebook classes. I enjoyed all the classes. The information that is shared by the instructors are non-traditional which makes it more interesting. I especially like when they link the physical body to the emotional, mental and spiritual. Lani Kwon’s class was the first time I encountered Tarot cards. I look forward to attending more classes to further my knowledge of the metaphysical.
It’s been a busy month. My wife has been away for just about all of October so I made a goal to clean up as much of my clutter as possible while she was gone. You should have seen my house with everything sprawled out over the living room. Well, I think I did accomplish quite a bit and although the progress may not be readily visible, there was a lot of stuff I gave away, or donated and a few things that I sold to begin the long process. At least I got through the inertia phase. The cleaning of my magic room was my main focus. I reorganized some shelves to save space. I took a bunch of stuff to the magic meeting to sell. I also gave away some magic at the Waikiki Elementary School Haunted House where I was doing some strolling magic. I have a bunch of magic that I have targeted that I want to sell and will need to inventory them before I forward a list to David Ginn who is a magician who sells magic. I also gave away several books and some clothes to Salvation Army and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Although not completely satisfied, I’m pretty happy with myself, but I realized that there is a lot more to do. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Imua! Ganbatte! Oh, wait, first I going take a break since my wife is back. Till next month. . .
Looks like my schedule has caught up with me. I pretty much have been able to attend classes regularly for July, August, September, October. I was actually surprised that I attended so many classes. Well, it finally caught up with me in November. I did not attend very many classes when compared to previous months and December will be even worse. The Life Planning session was the one I was worried about attending. I didn’t realize it was a two day seminar. I will probably not be able to make it in December as this is the busiest month for magic show this year. Normally, it’s not a busy month, but for some reason, this year, it is.
I am hoping that the I can make the next Spring Life Planning session if I know ahead of time. I have shows booked out in January and February and even out to August 2019, but if I know ahead of time, I can block out days for the planning session.
The Scarlet excursion was pretty wild. I’m not a guy that goes outside of my comfort zone too often so I thought I’d jump at the chance of a new experience. As you can probably tell, I don’t get too wild and I don’t drink so I just kind of took it all in and chilled out, but it was fun. It’s just that the music was too loud. Never thought my wife would go, but she said she had fun too. I’m glad the group got to meet her. This was a great bonding activity and I fee that I know my cohorts better and I feel a little closer to them. It’s nice to see them outside the Happiness U setting.
I was kinda looking forward to end of my scholarship in December and then I saw the extension offer. It’s just that it’s big stretch for me to make such a commitment. I feel bad because I wasn’t able to attend many of the classes in November. What a generous offer! I probably will accept the offer, but again I need to discuss with my wife. I’m not sure how she feels about me going to all these classes. I think seeing my cohorts at Scarlet helped. She thought it was a nice group.
I’m going to check the December calendar right now to see how many of the classes I can attend. I know I can attend the Monday night meditation classes with Max. I’m really hoping I can attend more classes in December, but with my magic show schedule, it’ll be very difficult.
And lastly, thank you to my sponsor(s) for giving me the opportunity to experience new and wonderful teachers and practitioners that are so progressive and knowledgeable. I loved the session on natural skin care. It felt wonderful and with the use of natural ingredients, it was so invigorating for my skin. I felt so pampered. I’m trying to get my wife to try them out to see if she likes it.
Mele Kalikimaka and a Hauoli Makahiki Hou!
December was a very rough month for me. I was not able to attend very many classes as I had suspected. I might have been able to attend a few more, but I got sick with laryngitis and that took a lot out of me. I had magic shows every Saturday and Sunday in December. Normally, it’s not a busy month, but for some reason, this year, it is. I came very close to cancelling a few shows, but did not. Fortunately, I was able to complete all of them.
I was very disappointed that I missed the Life Planning session. I didn’t realize it was a two day seminar, but I have blocked out the last weekend in March so I should be able to attend. I communicated with Pat so I got a headstart on my Life’s Purpose statement at least. I am looking forward to a more restful January and also looking forward to attending more seminars. Happy New Year!
