I turned 54 at 7:13 ET this morning. As I sat here in the dark wrapped in my comforter with my cup of coffee, I remembered how I felt and where I was in my life last year on my birthday. As unsettling and challenging as 2013 was, I'm grateful for the changes the past 12 months brought... an amazing new person in my life who loves me with a purity and intensity I’ve never known before… people who moved on with love and grace because it was time... new personal and professional relationships that are taking my life in exciting new directions... a new direction for Gypsy Wolf Marketing and Dakini Dreams... a renewed focus on my weavings (my artwork is now available at New Mexico Creates)... a continuing self-care regimen including yoga, tribal fusion belly dancing, and spa treatments... making the leap to work with life and business coach, Christine Kane in her Platinum Mastermind program... and new daily rituals including meditation and affirmations to keep me centered and on track.
It’s hard to trust that everything is going to work out sometimes, especially for a control freak like me, but last year taught me that ultimately the Universe really does look out for us. If we let it.
