Taking Stock of 2011 — What are Your Successes and Challenges?
As each year culminates in celebration with friends and family – I take time to asses the previous year. It’s a time for us to acknowledge our successes, to celebrate the potential we’ve grown into, and to plan for our next evolution. It’s a time to evaluate if we’ve lived true to our values and intentions and to look deeply at what’s still missing and causing us pain.
EVALUATE 2011 with these questions:
Consider each area of your life including your career, family life, living situation, spiritual & personal development, health & well-being, and fun & leisure, and finances.
What are you most satisfied with about your experience with 2011? What would you most like to change?
What area of your life did you most attend to, and what result did you create?
Was there any area of your life that you avoided dealing with or just didn’t give the attention it needed?
What values did you stay true to?
Which ones tripped you up or left you feeling disappointed and out of personal integrity?
Here is what made 2011 one of my BEST YEARS!
FUN AND LEISURE: This year I traveled to Thailand and Africa. I traveled on two trips this year. In March I went to Thailand and got kissed by a baby elephant. I met some lovely people including Aon, a top guides who took care of us like royalty! We took a long tail boat into Klong Seang to a remote lake with 1000m karst and stayed on a floating raft house. Even in the middle of wildlife sanctuaries, the food was that of a 5-star restaurant. We visited Tiger Kingdom and the experience of lying down with tigers is nothing less than exhilerating. The islands at Ko Taratau are breathtaking and the sand was like powder between my toes.Being outside of my familiar surroundings opened my heart and I’ll be sharing more of my joy and pain around what I experienced.
FAMILY: 2011 started with my fathers kidney transplant and is ending with my mother having the same surgery. My parents have been on dialysis and unable to leave home without considerable planning. Now they are (mostly) free to enjoy their lives in ways they had forgotten possible. My appreciation and gratitude for my family, and for the preciousness of life, is a gift that I’m reminded of everyday when I open my eyes. There is certainly plenty to complain – and worry about – with our world in the economic crisis it’s in, and how far we have to go to bring our environment back into balance let alone the personal concerns of the direction our lives are taking – or not taking fast enough! However, the experience with my family this past year reminds me to take a breath and remember the things that really matter to me – like love and compassion and vulnerability that can grow us into our next highest evolution.
The worst of 2011 for me!
A few years ago, I moved back to California to be with my grandmother in her final years. Caring for my grandmother, and being with her when she took her last breath, was one of my most treasured experiences.
The upside is that I’ve gone through my own personal evolution and I’m excited to share with you in a much more intimate and powerful way. I’ve developed new and exciting programs and breathed life into some ideas I’ve had help you make 2012 your BEST YEAR ever. I’m excited to share them with you.
