There are probably a million other things I ought to be doing right now.
Like maybe…thinking about where to move my business checking account (it’s been real, Chase), preparing for a two week trip across the Pacific to make the family rounds in a few days, or promoting my upcoming retreat to Mexico in March, as well as my new 5-week Power Flow class series (available to the public) that I’ll be starting in late January.
But seeing as how it’s the fourth day of 2011 and I have yet to dedicate a decent amount of headspace to reflecting on the past year, here I am, pecking out this post.
2010 was, for me and for what seems like so many others in my personal circle, a uniformly intense year alternately filled with some incredible highs and terrible lows. But, as I reflected in Phyzz’s December newsletter, I remain standing in awe of the sheer breadth of my experience this year, and thankful for all the opportunities to learn, grow and evolve that have come my way.
The list of highlights below contains some personal (read: not exclusively Phyzz-related) ones, but I hope you’ll pardon that indulgence.
In 2010, I…
- Led two yoga retreats – my first international one to Mexico, and my second local one to Lopez Island here in Washington State
- Virtually tripled the size of Phyzz’s client list, including an especially gratifying and quickly-growing private individual session practice
- Performed one of my songs on Seattle’s prestigious Paramount Theater stage, and got to do so with some incredible musicians and a Grammy award-winning British artist
- Participated in an incredible musical project to heal the hearts of many in the face of loss and tragedy
- Brought myself to a level of physical fitness I never thought I could reach, which then enabled me to run two races, run 5 miles comfortably (which was, believe it or not, a lifelong goal), and finally, climb a mountain, and have an article published on Elephant Journal about my experience.
- Learned a lesson or two or three about life and death, friendship, love, and relationships (and haven’t we all)
- Offered a few deals on a couple of those new-fangled group purchasing-type websites
- Consumed more oysters than I ever have in my entire life. I know.
Bring it, 2011! What’s next? I’m ready!
