The focus at 509 Graisbury for 2015 is two fold. The first is to appreciate what we have. The second is to strive for even better. The second is only allowed after the first is complete.
I like this goal because, for me, 2014 had too little of the first and too much of the latter. It's a dangerous lack of balance, and if yoga has taught me anything it is that lack of balance leads to bad things, especially if you're trying to reach for something more.
I realized last year that aspiration that does build on a foundation of gratitude leads me down a slippy slope that ends with faulty relationships, dangerous inner monologues, and people asking, "have you thought about talking to a professional?"
This vacation was exactly what it needed to be. Quality time with my family, my girls, rest, recovery, fun, choc-a-bloc with reminders of all we have to be thankful for, and full of inspiration that the best is yet to come.
Here's to making this the best year yet, and realizing we already have what we need to make it so.
