happy new year!

the closet reorg was a success - 3 bags of goodies to go to a new home - although there are remnants still lying around (now where to put my bed linens and yoga pants?). new year's eve consisted of yoga, a lovely italian lunch in old town, a hot bath, oodles of reading, chinese take-out for dinner, reflecting with beau on the year end and start of a fresh one, a blazing fire, and an agreement that we didn't have it in us to leave the blazing fire. instead, we drank presecco, toasted to the new year with anderson cooper, and i returned to reading surrounded by 10 books and beau returned to computer work. ah, we're officially lame and proud.

i woke up today saying to beau, "i don't feel any different. have i made enough changes? am i off course already?" he replied with a smirk that we were only 12 hours into the new year, most of them consisted of sleeping, and that i was doing just fine. i breathed a sigh of relief.

while reflecting with him last night, he helped me categorize my goals as i tend to mix goals and action steps. i still want to put a solid list together now that all my action steps fall under a few main goals for 2007. but first, i am off to lead an exciting and sold-out workshop on setting your intentions in the new year at the studio. i hope to record it so that i can share it with you.

if you, too, are anxious about the high expectations surrounding "a new year, a new you," you're not alone. ideally we're striving to improve on a daily basis. however, the beauty of january 1 is that a lot of the world is also taking a moment to reflect on improvement. bask in it. reveal in the positive energy. keep making strides. when it gets to be too much, take a hot bath and roll out your yoga mat. get your goals down on paper. share them with a friend.

i have a good feeling about 2007. may this be your best year yet! xo

Hi Kimberly!

Lame and proud is the way to be. My husband and I spent our first ever New Year's at home and LOVED it.
We felt the need, at first, to keep justifying it, like it's raining out, we don't have to drive anywhere, it's just us, etc... Then finally, we admitted, we're lame and this is nice!

Happy New Year!
