So, I meant to write a week ago but June has been extremely busy!
The journaling e-course that I signed up for has been great. It has exposed me to some really interesting concepts relating to vulnerability and positivity. It has also introduced me to the Theodore Roosevelt speech referring to the man in the arena. Reading that gives me goosebumps.
I’m not as far through it as I thought I would be by now (i.e., done) because there was a stretch of time where I either wasn’t able to journal that day or I just didn’t have the energy to do the work involved. There are a couple of days where I feel I want to go back and redo the exercises. Because I think my tiredness affected how I did it, so the answers I wrote out in response to the question don’t really match what the e-course anticipated, if that makes any sense? The conclusion of those exercises said “Now you have discovered what you admire in certain people!” And I was looking at my answers and thinking, “I don’t think I ended up where I was supposed to…”
But I’m currently sitting in the airport, heading for another work trip. This time, I’m going to Oslo, Norway, for a conference. Another new place! I won’t get too much time for looking around, but hopefully with the proximity to the summer solstice, I’ll have some daylight after my conference day to at least wander around and see the city.
