What? We cannot be on the cusp of 2018 already! This year has evaporated. And yes, I say this every year about this time. There are days that seem to last forever and there are those that are gone in a flash. Together they weave the magical tapestry that is my life. I’m wrapping up 2017 and celebrating my 49th year on the planet by reflecting. What a year it’s been. Launching my daughter to college. Teaching yoga at a local studio. Strengthening my drawing skills. Learning to paint with acrylics. Creating and presenting a yoga & art workshop. Launching a small online class. Watching one son find success in a new sport. Giving myself permission and time, to examine my own thoughts. Remembering I too, am a priority. Watching my other son begin to understand his path. Seeing my husband be genuinely appreciated by his employer. Knowing those who have handled loss with grace and grit. Understanding that it all has value. Feeling abundant gratitude.
What will 2018 have for me, for you? How will my creative spirit show up? What does it need? How will my humanity show up? What do I need to give myself permission to do? As a wife, mom, teacher, business owner, woman, human, what is on the horizon? What adventure awaits? I am ready and willing to find out. Are you?
Blessings & Peace as you closeout the year and usher in the new.
