As 2016 comes to an end I'm taking time to reflect and revisit the last 365 days. It's been a beautiful and challenging year with lots of high and lows, especially in our global community. What brings me joy, offers stability and gives me strength is my little but powerful tribe of clients, friends, and loved ones. For that I want to say "thank you"! 

I feel very grateful for all the moments spent and shared with the people who enrich my life on the daily. As each year passes we also want to reflect on the things that troubled us, gave us heart aches, or challenged us mentally and physically. There's no need to be perfect and no need to punish ones self for missed opportunities or so-called mistakes. 

Everything in life happens for a reason, as cheesy as that sounds, and the only direction to go is forward! So let us all learn from this past year and remember it all, good and bad, sweet and bitter, loud and quiet. It makes for a spicy, exciting, and adventurous mix and as the late Leonard Cohen said it best "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."

I hope that you will embrace the new year with me with open and strong arms, willing to be surprised, uplifted, challenged, and loved all over again.
