A Year in the Life

I keep thinking I should just close down this blog; but then I come back to it and realize it's a record of my life. Even as rare as the entries have become, there is a part of me here, on the page, that I don't want to let go of.

So what can happen in a year?

My puppy died.

I produced a new album, Queen Be: The Goddess Within, and grew a lot in the process.

Two of my closest friends moved away; one got married and one moved to Central America.

My family changed a lot: My nephew got married. My niece has a new boyfriend I actually like. My other nephew and I have deep conversations about life and love and faith, which I cherish. My Mom continues to serve and my Dad continues to hang in there. . . . life goes on.

I'm stepping into my identity as a Teacher. One more Immersion course under my belt: 27 days of deep transformation, exhaustion and exhilaration.

I don't write as much as I used to.

I discovered an amazing hike behind my house--where I walk for miles and miles with my dog Vinnie on Saturday mornings.

One year older, and maybe a little bit wiser, but ask my friends whether that's true or not--not me.

365 days, one day at a time, sometimes lonely, mostly not. Enjoying each day as it comes.

What do we learn in a year? That time goes by so quickly and that life is long. And that no matter how many years we have under our belts, we still long for love, for connection, for union.

We still hope.

If anyone still reads this blog--share what you learned this year with me. It's the season of harvest--what lessons have you harvested? What gifts have you reaped? I could use a little wisdom right about now....

Thank you!
i will give it a deep thought what changed this year.. i know a lot did, but somehow i seem to forget more quickly, because "now" is so much more important.
And now off to yogaclass... i will meditate on your question.

Sat Purkh, please, don't close down this blog! If had known it before, I would've left lots of comments on your texts...hahah! But as I've come to know it only now, I promise I'm gonna leave lots of comments on your upcoming texts... hahahaha! I like the way you write very much! :-)

Well, what did I learn in the year of 2011? Well, many things. Among them, two very important ones:

1 - I have to enhance my yogic practice for me to make the most of it;

2 - I have to be less anxious otherwise I'm gonna lose my job... hahah! Actually, it's not a job, it's an internship. But the money I get from it is very important for me to pay my things... In this internship I work as an English teacher. The guy who supervises me criticized me a lot the last time he watched a class of mine, since he said I'm too anxious (I'm always hurrying them up: "Let's go, guys, you have 5 minutes do finish the exercises!" Come on, 2 minutes"...) and that makes my students to be very anxious, and that's not good for their learning.... Yeah, he's right, I cannot deny it... :-)Well, let's see if Yoga is gonna help me soon! (hahah! Anxious girl!)

Sat nam!
