As I sit here on New Years Eve reflecting on the past year, I feel truly blessed.
Last New Year’s Eve I attended an evening yoga class and ceremony right into 2016- its something I have wanted to do for years. It was pretty powerful.
I kayaked the Russian River, and spent countless hours in nature, on the beach, in the redwoods and beyond.
I launched my own yoga business, Pacific Limbs Yoga.
I built a website.
I was able to teach some wonderful friends prenatal yoga.
I hosted my very first yoga event in March in beautiful Jenner and another in April in sunny San Diego (although it was actually raining). I connected with yoga students from my past who chose me to be their private yoga guide (what an honor!)
I broke my toe, and mindfully healed myself.
I moved in with my love in our very own apartment in beautiful downtown Petaluma.
I was able to spend some quality time with my mom.
I quit my day job that was squeezing my soul, even though it was a fun place with amazing people. Making that decision was extremely tough.
I developed a more consistent yoga practice, and met many new amazing yoga teachers and friends.
I went to Tulum, Mexico to teach yoga for Dreams Resort and Spa for one week. This was a big one for me, I was so nervous in my head, worried about my skills and experience. It was one of the most memorable experiences of 2015. Not only did I have a blast relaxing on the white sand beach with a piña colada in hand, I was able to share my love of yoga with others.(I even got to teach some prenatal yoga!) I received the deep gift of self confidence and self acceptance. I realized my ability to connect with humans at the soul level. To me this is priceless.
I celebrated my 32nd birthday.
Drank champagne on the beach.
Hiked with friends, and swam in lakes.
I started teaching at a new yoga studio 2 blocks from my house. Foo Dog Yoga 490 2nd St. Petaluma, Ca (Come visit us!)
I realized that having your own business is A LOT of work, and have gone back to the drawing board to fine tune and sharpen my focus.
I lost a few friends on this Earthly plane, and somehow through the grief and tears I feel more connected to them than ever before.
I was able to reconnect with old friends and enjoy some quality time with family.
I got to see one of my best friends as a working actor in San Francisco, a dream of hers since I’ve know her (14 years!) Shout out to CMONEY!
I made our apartment into a winter wonderland and enjoyed an indulgent yet peaceful christmas.
I’m ready to add another part time job and generate more income to accelerate my dreams and visions. Any local wineries want an enthusiastic, fun, and reliable person on their team? I’m your woman!
As I prepare for tonights dinner with two of my favorite people on the planet (Mia and Kurt) I feel extremely rich… not so much in the conventional sense, rather rich in my soul, in my life, what I’ve created and who I choose to surround myself with.
I will enter 2016 more focused, more confident, and as always flexible and adaptable to change.
Thanks to everyone I’ve met along the way on this strange and winding road we call Life.
