Welcome to 2017

Hello to all of my subscribers,

It has been a while between posts, I hope you haven’t been missing me too much. I can tell you that I’ve missed writing here. I find it very cathartic, healing and valuable for me as often I write posts relevasnt to what’s going on in my life – my students, teaching, family and personal life. I’m not very big on sharing personal stuff – I need to process this myself before I feel ready to share it with others and when the time comes that I’m ready to talk about it I prefer to do so with a friend or family member rather than a public forum like my blog or Facebook.

So lets just say the past few months have been busy personally leaving me not as much time as I’d like to post. These things are ongoing and though a part of me thought perhaps I should wait until I had more time and everything settled down, another part of me – the wiser part I think, reasoned that waiting for the perfect time might mean I never post again. There will always be something going on, changes to adjust to, people around me needing or offering support, kids growing and developing new needs.

In 2017 I might find myself with more time or I might not. Right here today I do have time so right here today I am posting…

Every New Year it is a good time to make resolutions, promises to yourself and others, positive changes to your lifestyle, attitude and habits. My golden rule when doing this is not to get carried away – it might feel great to write a long list of ideals about how your life in the year ahead will be but  I always need to remind myself to keep it reasonable and achievable. Otherwise I set myself up for not reaching those goals and feeling bad about myself.

So to finish my first post for the year I would like to wish all of my readers a year of growth, healing and evolution. Last year was definitely that for me, the term “Happy New Year” is most often wished upon us however happiness only teaches us so much, we actually learn and develop more through the challenges we face and the difficult times we get through. Whatever this new year has in store for us all – may we recognise the opportunities it offers when they come our way, may we enjoy the ride – both the ups and the downs, may we find happiness while also fully embracing sorrow, anger, fear and any other emotions that come our way, may we be healthy and accepting and content.

Love and light,
