Learning Curves (Yes, Plural!)

 
I took the above picture today at lunch. This pretty pond is only a few minutes’ walk from my desk, on the grounds of HP. I spent most of my lunchbreak lying in the grass and getting roasted by the sun, trying to process my disbelief at actually being AT WORK whilst doing this. The major challenge was not falling asleep, it was so peaceful and quiet.
 
Come to think of it, it’s just as well that I get peaceful lunches, because other than that, I’m very busy learning all those financial terms and trying to wrap my head around complicated processes. What possessed me to work in finances? I have to admit though, that it’s all rather interesting. 
 
When I get home, I do more work, this time on my brand new and hot program for HSPs (Highly Sensitive Persons). Even if I say so myself, it’s turning out amazing! And if you look at the prices, you’ll see that it’ll be very affordable. Setting all this up has some challenges for me too, for example I finally had to learn how to create guided meditations. Much sweat flowed and hair was torn while I tried to figure out how to record without too much background buzzing, and put soothing music on the track without drowning out my voice. The result may not be world class, but it’ll do the job and I’m soooo proud at having figured this out on my own, as a not-so-technical person!
 
Now you know where the title comes from. And that’s why I feel incredibly alive these days, in spite of the amount of work in both job and business. I just LOVE learning new things. I can practically feel my grey brain cells dancing. 
 
Which is just as well, seeing as my brain cells would just go into overdrive these days, if they weren’t kept busy and happy by all the activity. The thing is, the coming week is like geek/nerd central in my world, with lots of important dates coming up that I’ve been waiting for forever, such as:
 
  • On the 9th, the first episode of “Outlander” will air in the States. I’ve seen it already, since there’s a free preview on the Starz website, and I can’t wait for the rest of the series – it’s just PERFECT. And now, the world will finally be infected by the bug I got from my Inga 11 years ago (if you haven’t read the series, DO EET NOW)!

  • On the 12th , the wait is over and “Fool’s Assassin” will be published – yesssssssssssssss! 

  • On the 14th, Blizzard will announce the release date of the next WoW expansion. About. bloody. time!! Knowing my luck, it will probably drop in October, when we have a financial year end at the job and I’ll be working around the clock, haha.
 
I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but these three events would each have been enough to make my day, week, and month on their own. 
 
And that’s it! Tell me how you like the sound of the new Coaching program (link above), don’t forget to subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already, and enjoy the post-Lughnasad summer while it lasts.

  1. The HSP looks really good! I took the test myself and got about 13 points… lol i've always been an “in-between” 😉
    I've been going through some growing curves myself… Realising more and more that I have a path of healing myself and others in the broad sense… I'm going to look into reiki, since it keeps popping up everywhere. But I don't want to get involved with the commercial people inthat business… I guess life will take me where I need to be.
    Sounds like the new job is amazing! I have a pond like that near my workplace, about 15-min walk. it's just as peaceful and quite and I go there very often. It's great to be able to find peace and quiet during your workday!

  2. It's great to have something green nearby where you work, isn't it? The only thing I don't like about an office job is being so removed from nature, and when I have the chance to hug a tree or lie in the grass during lunch, it kinda makes up for that.

    It's the best feeling in the world, isn't it, to discover your “calling”! Reiki sounds great, I for some reason thought of Body Talk when I read what you wrote – you with your animal connection might want to look into that as well.

    I'm firmly convinced that it *is* possible to earn a living doing what you love, and it's not exploiting anyone, it's sharing your gift with the world and being rewarded appropriately <3

    Hugs!!

  3. What's Body Talk? Do you have any links? it's new to me 🙂
    I know, I'm lucky to have a job in an office that's not located in the middle of a big city, but in the quieter part of town, in the midst of fields 🙂 I desperately need that sense of space and air. especially since I've been living in the city. it's about time we move out and find a new home where I can feel the earth under my feet.

  4. Beautiful photo – I want to be there! You inspire me with your joy of learning new things. I am also just putting together my first e-courses and the technical stuff is truly a steep climb! Wishing you much success! xox, Reba

  5. I'm very lucky to be working there 🙂
    Would love to hear more about your ecourses when they're done. I always tell people to leave links to their own stuff in the comments here, small businesses need to support each other!
