there are less than 7 hours left in 2008 and it's amazing to reflect on all that has transpired this year: authentic leadership program at naropa university, launching of online creativity circle, visiting my adopted farm animals at the farm sanctuary, taking a solo expedition to nyc for my 35th, moving into our new tranquil space in may, getting honored as a new leader in philanthropy, hosting our 2nd annual tranquil space foundation gala, teaching at kripalu, moving into our TranquiliT showroom (and out of my dining room!), teaching in asheville and san francisco, cabin week with BFF, time with family over the hollydaze, finalizing my second book deal for tranquilista, hosting a holiday soiree for dear friends, interviewing the lovely SARK, hosting our 2nd annual hip tranquil chick retreat in ny, starting 2008 with a new year's gala (click the link for scoop 2009's), and basking in just being with beau + louis.
i've been very blessed this year with lots of memories, oodles of lessons, and a warm connection to many new friends. 2008 has been filled with many challenges and i'm honored to have come through the other side - hopefully a little wiser. may 2009 bring us all continuous lessons, good laughs, opportunities that push our comfort zone, and the wisdom to make mindful decisions. thank you 2008 for yet another glorious year.
