2015 in review and my 2016 wishes for you!

2015 has definitely been another year of transformation and growth for me. Before the year is up I’ll be looking back, re-reading blogs, posts on Facebook, and my journal to reflect and review a lot of what I’ve done in this past year. And of course I’m also putting into place the steps for my plans both personal and professional for 2016. I’m excited about both! One aspect as mentioned that is fun to look back at is my activity here on WordPress.

I love knowing that my words here are reaching a lot of people, and hopefully connecting with and inspiring at least some of those readers. I love knowing my blog is being shared by other bloggers to their readers and to friends and strangers alike.

I also love to hear from my readers on how my words have affected them. I read every comment I get and use your feedback to create future blogs and to do things better. I hope you will continue to comment and share with me. We all seek that connection with others.

I would be even more thrilled if you wanted to share your 2016 goals and aspirations with me, especially if they involve health and wellness, but really it’s ALL about wellness – mental, spiritual and physical, isn’t it?

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for my blog. It’s posted below.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 47 trips to carry that many people.

Are you ready to make 2016 YOUR year of change? Your year of inspiration? Your year of amazing change?

For 2016 I wish this for all of you:

may the coming year





2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 38 trips to carry that many people.

2014 has been a wonderful, scary, loving, challenging, exciting, difficult, fun/funny and so much more year for me. I hope it was all of that for all of you.

I went to the seawall today. My fave place to find peace, to think, to connect with nature and clarify. It was a nice sunny day, a bit on the chilly side (only about 4*C – 39*F) but I dressed warmly and was there about 2-3 hours. It’s also a great place to people watch which is always enjoyable but I like to practice my observation skills in ‘reading’ people too.

I needed the time there to do some processing, reflect on this past year, make some decisions/plans for 2015 and just find that connection to Mother Nature that I had been missing.

Since I’ve been working at Natural Echoes I’ve not been able to get to the seawall as much as I used to so I’m finding when I do get there I really need to get there. 🙂

I also did some cleaning, clearing and cleansing of my home before I went out. My apartment feels good now. Fresh and clean, safe and comforting, ready for a new year.

Down at the seawall I did the same cleaning, clearing and cleansing within myself. I feel ready to tackle whatever 2015 throws my way. I know it’s going to be challenging but I also know it’s going to be full of joys to balance it all out. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself in the last year or so, it’s that my life needs to be about balance. Not 50/50 all the time but when it gets too far in one direction I can really tell! One of my plans for 2015 is bringing more joy and playfulness back into my life. I’ve been doing so much deep transformative work with hypnosis that I’ve (temporarily) lost that part of me. I can see her starting to peek through again though. And yes that part of me is a little girl because well I was one once, still am to some extent and certainly I’m a woman, so my humour, sense of fun and playfulness tends to be on the female side of the equation. My best friend did comment this morning when we were Skyping that she caught a glimpse of that part of me. 🙂

In closing I’d like to sincerely thank each and every one of you that follow my blog! I hope that you get joy, connection, knowledge and perhaps even just a little bit of what you need when you need it, from following me.
