Six weeks ago today, I taught my last Zumba class. Part of my plan was to work on reclaiming my weekends, getting more rest, and having more availability for on-call work, should the need arise. So far, I have worked on three of the six weekends, which is more than I expected, though likely that should even out soon enough.

Part of my goal was to be able to be open for other goals I’ve been pursuing. One goal was to work toward teaching workshops, and this week I learned that one of my latest proposals was accepted for a conference. I’m excited to bring it to life, and to keep studying, learning, and improving on these fronts.

I said it then and I’ll say it now: onward and upward!
