Life is Beautiful

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have 30 days left in 2011. That is all.  I am not sure why I am so shocked about this news.  I knew yesterday was November 30th and that when I woke up it would be Dec 1. Yet it still feels like a big shock. Like somebody played  an enormous trick on me.

Where does time go?

Feels like yesterday I was packing up my car to leave Georgia  and now I see that in a few days I will be hitting the 6 month anniversary of that event.

Time flies and for me 2011 has been a year of loss, transition, discovery and opportunities.  Life has been painful. Life has been beautiful.

This is the time of year where I look back and  reflect on my life. I look at my work, my personal life, my financial health, my emotional health and my physical health.

I do a 360 review of me.

So I will spend the next 10  days reflecting– remembering, writing,  and gathering lessons.

Then I will let stuff go. My past will not guide me. My errors and mistakes from 2011 will not join me in the New Year. I will not carry that baggage.

I will spend the rest of the month focused on 2012. Cleaning, organizing, arranging, planning, scheming and dreaming. I will surround myself with positive people and fill my soul and mind with  knowledge that  supports the growth and edification of my soul… of my journey.

  •  I will commit to tending to my  intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional, and social needs in order to be more nurturing
  • I will commit to entering into relationships expecting them to contribute to  shared growth and development.
  • I  will commit to utilizing creative ways to help organizations and individuals reach their potential intellectually, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and socially.

I will enter 2012 with an “empty rice bowl”– so that it can be filled in what ever way it needs to be.

In 2011 my word was Freedom and I so lived and embodied that ! I am still meditating and praying on my 2012 mantra not sure what it will be or how I will come upon it, but I have faith.

We have 30 days more…..How will you spend them?

George Floyd Should Still Be Alive

George Floyd should be alive, this is what I know to be true. He should be alive. 9 minutes 29 seconds. His family won’t get him back. His daughter will still grow up without her father. A guilty verdict will not change centuries of violence, it won't stop police from...

It’s OK to not be OK

It’s ok not to be ok. It is ok to be exhausted. It’s ok to cry. It’s ok to be angry. It’s ok to be numb. Right now is a heavy, heavy time. I am not gonna lie… I have felt it all week long as I have taught, worked and even in this moment, as I write. I have been...
