Impetus

"Our work is less about changing people than about designing environments that rouse the healing and creative impulses latent in each of us and in the group." ~Alan Briskin

Hello again world. 

I've been thinking about writing here for quite some time. There's been lots of different nudges - circumstances that have me thinking about sharing and composing bits of blog posts in my head. Today I'm here.

The mother of a friend who comes to my classes has passed and today is her funeral. It's being held in the same place that we held my mom's. The cute guy and I will be attending because it's support yes? Holding space for others. Keeping everything from boiling up and over just by being there. 

I've been thinking a lot about how lucky I've been in terms of family and relationships and circumstances. I didn't realise I was thinking it was lucky till I just wrote that. 

I've been thinking a lot about the situations I've been through, lessons learned and support that I have. I'm trying to figure out how to share it all with the world.

This morning I reread the posts I wrote during the month of my mom's passing and I'm strongly reminded that I'd like to write a book about her. I have to start it soon. It's been on my mind the past few weeks with certain family situations that have been popping up. 

I feel like writing. Maybe I start here.

peace,
Ren

Happy New Year!

"Face new challenges, seize new opportunities, test your resources against the unknown and in the process, discover your own unique potential". ~ John Amatt

It's the Chinese New Year today and I thought since I haven't written at all for this year that it's a good time to do so. How are you world? What's happening? I hope the good outweighs the bad. Positive over negative. The wheel of time turns - what goes up must come down so I know that everything has a cycle, an upturn and a downturn. 

If life is good right now then take a moment to appreciate it. If it isn't then wait a moment - good things are coming. I'm being patient - taking the time to appreciate the good things in my life and preparing to receive what may come next. I'll be checking in here from time to time so look out for me!

peace,
Ren
