We made it!
Daya got her report card and again she has straight As in honors.
She has a 100 average in Math!!
She is on the Golden Honor Roll. Again.
And that's in addition to 15 hours of dance- including assistant-teaching 2 classes.
And she is beating herself up because it isn't good enough for her......because her total average is something like a 95 and people in her class are bragging about a 97 average. And she doesn't have a 100 average in EVERYTHING. (Her lowest is a 90.)
It's ok to want to do well and have standards, but there is a line that, once crossed, becomes unhealthy. I have told her this but it means nothing to her. When Daya is feeling bad and I point out something positive, she says it doesn't matter. I hope it is just the age and she levels out a bit with this pendulum thinking.
I am suuuper proud of her, though.
She works so hard.
I think I have finally arrived at a point where I need to paint again.
It is a relief.
I'm hoping I get a chance tonight...it really depends on how Rob is feeling. He is at the dentist this morning for that toothache and if he needs some taking-care-of, I will do that. It is really nice to care about someone who appreciates being cared about.
I need a meditation structure for this month.
Sometimes I need that-- I need to implement a structure of daily practice to stay centered. I have a couple of ideas for the month but I think it might just be an evening prayer I keep on my altar. Someone gave it to me last year and told me to use it for 21 days straight- which I did- to good effect.
I had forgotten all about it until I noticed it on my altar a couple of days ago.
So I will spend some time with that this month.
