2010 is behind us now, and I am certainly looking forward to what 2011 has to bring!
At the start of each new year, I like to look back at the year past and review the ups, the downs, the good, the bad, the achievements, the challenges – and hopefully learn something to take with me into the next year of life.
2010 was a particularly challenging year for me, and many people I’ve spoken with say it was quite a difficult year for them as well. I’m certainly no astrologer, but I know we are in some very interesting astrological times, and I’m sure that has an influence. From my observations it appears that we are being challenged to be integral in everything that we do, and that we may be getting some pretty big wake up calls to get on track and get honest with ourselves.
I’d like to put my best moments, most challenging, and 2011 goals up here – and if anyone would like to add theirs in the comments, it would be great to read how others fared in 2010.
Best: I have to say that my business exceeded all expectations this year. From organising the very successful David Wolfe tour and being part of it as we travelled around the country, to having every Embracing Life! Retreat that I ran in the past six months being totally and completely sold out. The amazing people I meet and the journey we share on the retreats is something I treasure every single time.
Challenging: As many of you already know, my fiancée and I parted ways a couple of months ago, and the stress surrounding that has been immense. I’ve gone through the depths of despair, suffering quite severe bouts of depression at times, as I’ve had to come to terms with being almost 40, single and childless, which was not on the life plan. In every challenge there is a multitude of gifts, and I’ve learnt some very deep and powerful lessons through this experience that I am very grateful for, and will stand me in good stead for the rest of my life.
On a physical level, the “injury” that I did to my neck in September that left me with excruciating nerve pain and numbness down my arms is still not resolved. No amount of chiropractic, acupuncture, myotherapy, massage, trigger point, sauna’s, herbs, supplements, topical creams, electrotherapy, emotional clearing, etc has resolved it completely. I still have two numb fingers and intermittant pain and pins and needles. It is slowly healing, but it’s been a difficult journey!
Goals:My 2011 goals for my personal life, are to do with continuing healing on both an emotional and physical level. My fitness has gone out the window this past year, so I’m looking forward to having fun with excercise again! Business wise, besides again working successfully with David Wolfe and running some great retreats, I would love to get my first book finished – and the plans to do that are looking good!
I wish everyone a happy, healthy and successful 2011, full of lots of love and laughter!
