Welcoming a New Year

The changing of a calendar year brings a wonderful opportunity to reflect. On the good, order the bad, ambulance and the in-between. It’s a nice time to look back and congratulate yourself on your successes, help and check-in to see where there may be room for improvement and growth.

 

It took me a few days into 2017, but I sat down and thought of a few highlights for my 2016 year:

  • 3 trips to Cuba, including one sold-out yoga retreat
  • 2 local all women retreats with the amazing JUNA yoga team (we’re doing another ski-yoga retreat in February!)
  • My first full year of running a bed and breakfast, I hosted 150 nights
  • I taught approximately 200 hours of yoga classes
  • I meditated for almost 40 hours
  • I participated in my first ever race – actually two paddleboard races – one of which was 53 kms long! Will be doing both again in 2017 (SUPER SUP is a great first race)
  • I took 3 wonderful trips to Nova Scotia, to visit family, friends, and the ocean. 2017 will certainly see me there again
  • I took myself to two musicals, and 4 or 5 concerts. Live music is important.
  • I made at least 3 new friends
  • I had 2 near-death experiences, one of me and one for Zorro.
  • 4 camping trips
  • Held 4 of my good friends’ babies
  • More lake swims, sunset hikes, tears and laughter than I can count…

 

I’m hoping 2017 will bring:

  • 1 international yoga retreat – Cuba or Nicaragua? I’m headed out in February for some research!
  • 2 retreats at La Sauvage, my own bed and breakfast here in Tremblant
  • 1 retreat in Nova Scotia – as well as some significant time there
  • Honouring my personal practice: meditation, yoga, and movement in nature as medicine
  • Improve my tracking and recording so I know what I am doing with my energy and my money to make more informed decisions for the future
