2014 – My Year in Numbers
Wow. What a year. Of exponential growth on every level – except my waistband!
It has been BIG.
It was the Year of the Horse – and it felt like the year was done in the saddle – bareback at full gallop. And I know I’m not alone in that. It was a massive year of change at full speed in a lot of people’s lives as we were called to take our courage in our hands and step up, and work our magic on the shit thrown our ways.
Big pats on the back all round.
We did it. We are different people than those who started the year.
Braver. More paint-splashed and tear-stained. Richer in experience.
We have made it through another riotous dance around the sun. And thirteen tangos with the moon. With our hearts in our hands.
Let us give thanks for all that has been.
And let it go.
Opening up space for the year to come. In all its mystery and wonder. Possibility and potential.
