Wow!! What a year! It’s been a year of intense everything! We have had the politics, the women’s march, #metoo, climate change, hurricanes, Trump tweets, great inventions and awful social problems, old ones die, new are born. It’s the cycle of life.
But it seems fitting to say thank you and good bye to 2017.
What happened for you, personally, spiritually, professionally? What did you learn? What changed in you? What did you let go of? What did you embrace? What surprised or delighted you? What was your biggest challenge? What needs to be forgiven? What are you most grateful for? What were some of your successes? Did you celebrate them?
I love taking time at the end of the year to ponder both how I did and look at the future with hope and honesty. It’s not necessary an easy process, because it takes time and space in my life. But it’s so worth the effort, because I want to celebrate my success and honor the places there is still work to do.

I am grateful for 2017. I learned a great deal about myself, where I need to let go, grow and be grateful. To close out the year, I wrote a dear 2017 letter:
Thank you. It’s been an amazing and blessed year. Thank you for my life, my family, my home, my work, my sweet relationships, my health and all the ways I am blessed.
I understand I still have work to do. There are things I need to release, including my judgments of others, my expectations of how things should be and my disappointments. I want to be conscious of my thoughts, words and actions.
Thank you to my partners in life and work. Thank you to the strong, gentle, caring people, guardians and spirits who helped guide me, heal me, support me and inspire me. I am grateful.
Welcome 2018, let’s see what you have in store!
Sending love, light and blessings,
