I would really like to get Teacher Certification for the Self-Compassion Mindfulness Course. Really, really. But it would cost about $1,000, which I just don’t have to spare. Oh, actually, it would be about $2K because there would be travel expenses. Plus maybe another $500 for the registry fee. Oh, plus loss of income for about six days. Nope. Totally not happening in the foreseeable future.

On the other hand, I will be certified to teach a 90 minute Self-Compassion Mindfulness Intro course in just a few weeks. AND I can do the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for free and get a certification for that if I commit to doing it. I need to start where I am and build from there.

I slept 10 hours last night, and napped for about 90 minutes today. Other than that, I pretty much did kid stuff with the grands all day long, which was fun. Tomorrow, MP and I are supposed to go out. It’s free museum Sunday, so I imagine we’ll visit a museum and eat somewhere.

I know that I have a really good life. It’s not perfect, and there are lots of things for me to work on, and some things that I’d like to be different. But even at my whiniest, I don’t forget how fortunate I am.

    • Thanks, Roz – the MBSR class takes a lot of self-discipline… we’ll see if I can pull it off.

      But yeah, the free museum day is pretty great. We’ve gotten to see several museums we probably wouldn’t have gone to, and go a membership to one museum.
