First off, I wanted to say thank you to all my readers who over the past year, supported my "one post a week" goal. Some weeks it was easy, and I was brimming with exciting thoughts to share; others it was just the idea that I didn't want to let anyone down by not having said something. :-) Either way, with the help of all of you, I did what I said I was going to do. And your feedback (on and offline) really helped keep me going.
In some cases, I was very surprised to learn how something I'd written changed a person's life, or gave them new insights into themselves and their health. I've watched many of the people around me take steps to become more mindful, happier and healthier. I've also watched many people struggle, including myself, during 2012. For many of us that journey isn't over--in some cases it's only just begun. But I'm convinced that being able to share with each other, support each other, and receive support from each other is more important than ever before. And, it's critical to our emotional health.
Given all the transitions happening in my life right now I can't commit to a post a week in 2013. But I will write from time to time to share what's going on with me, in the hopes that maybe it will continue to resonate with all of you. In 2013 I'll be continuing to build my yoga teaching experience (4-5 classes a week!) and diving more into providing Reiki treatments to clients. I'll also be putting more emphasis on my emotional health and self-care.
I hope that any and all of your new year's resolutions help you discover the authentic you, and that you will stay committed to them, making progress one day at a time. I also hope that on days where you backslide, you can find the compassion for yourself that allows you to pick right back up, where you left off.
Here's to a mindful, happy, and healthy New Year!
