Birthdays give us a unique opportunity to reflect on the past year or years and set intentions for the year coming up. Hopefully they are also an opportunity to celebrate with those we love! This year I had the enviable situation of being able to do both and I am sitting here in profound gratitude on the love that is in my life and for the wisdom and grace I have accumulated over the past decade.
I decided to celebrate, today, my birthday, by myself at my favorite location - The Kripalu Center in Lenox, MA. I have a very intimate relationship with Kripalu as it was the place I used to go right after my divorce as a place to breakdown, cry and a place where I started my journey of healing and discovery. In the years since, it's been a place where I go to reflect, a place I have gone for self discovery and learning, a place where I have gone to reinvent, a place where I have gone to transform. Today, it was a place that I went to celebrate - Celebrate me, celebrate the people in my life, celebrate my journey, and most importantly to celebrate who I have become as a result of all of these experiences and all of this reflection, self discovery, learning, reinvention and transformation. Happy birthday to me - I am incredibly grateful <3
The one constant in life is change. How we navigate that change is who we are. Creating sustainable change is a more deliberate action and gives us the life we want. This is what my practice and my life mission is all about. All of my life experiences, work history and spiritual journey have lead me to this path - to help others create transformation in their lives and live lives that they love.
