Celebrating A Year Of Adventure And Challenge
My Google+ video reminds me of a good comic book page. The panels filled with dimension, perhaps color, and a few words or faces. But a wise man once told me that the whole story isn't just within the panels - it's what's in-between the panels that's really magical. That's where you get to imagine mysteries unfolding. Between each fade of my video montage live my failings, sufferings, joys, and aspirations.
Honestly, this past year humbled me with its painful themes of release and bravery. I let go of relationships that no longer fed me (setting up boundaries for yourself is important), I set down a role I held for 3 years so that others could add new energy to it, I sought self-care to heal wounds, and I acknowledged old habits that needed to be surrendered. These blessings didn't feel like blessings at the time, but with a world of valleys and mountains it's important to remember we learn something no matter where we stand.
To honor these experiences I'm going to sit in a sweat lodge this coming Saturday and say farewell to any of the residual struggle and negativity that might be leaching power from me as I enter 2014. Over the last 12 months I was happily sustained by travel, work, play, personal projects, friends and family. I'm thankful to all the people who said "yes, and" to ideas, who gave/received big hugs, who cheered me on and reminded me what I'm made of, and to those that are now supporting me in my new role. Looking forward, I hope I continue to be fortified with challenges, loving hearts, and big ideas.
2014, I'm a bit nervous - trembling just a tad. It could be the 3 cups of puerh I've had this afternoon, but something tells me it's because I've made choices in my life that I can't see the end of.A toast! To never running out of surprises, or the humility to enjoy them. #newyear #my2013 #goals #yearinreview #spiritualwarrior
