A beautiful crisp morning greeted me as I stepped out into the new year. The air was clear and deeply refreshing, and there were no sounds but that of the sleeping forest. As I stood there dazzled by the beauty of the morning, I quietly sang to the morning. As I stood in quiet reflection, I was filled with deep gratitude for the beauty of the morning and a the peace that existed in that moment. Looking back on 2020, I am actually in awe of the challenges overcome, the strength and resolve found, and the magical connections and friendships that were cultivated during one of the most challenging years of any of our lives. I had been planning and working towards 2020 as the GOAL year when I would see all my years of hard work pay off. Instead, 2020 became the year that I became grateful for everything that I already had. Suddenly I am not so driven to succeed, because I realize I already have. I did achieve my goals, they just didn't look the way I had anticipated, as it happened during a pandemic. There may still be some obstacles and roadblocks but I recognize they are temporary. I still have my heart, and unrelenting passion to help others achieve their personal goals. The year ahead will continue to be one of healing and growth for me. I am beginning a new 30 Day Yoga Challenge again today and vow to get rid of my harmful vices. I want 2021 to be the year I become the healthiest version of myself, and to really get deeply in touch with my body. In order to be whole, we need to take care of all parts of ourselves - mind, spirit and BODY, something I tend to forget. Since there are still a few weeks left to this lockdown, it is the perfect time to start.
Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year! I hope this year brings an abundance of connection, laughter, light and love to you all ❤
