I’m reflecting back on my life and recognizing that it was rarely the joyful moments that changed my world view, at least not dramatically. It was the bitter pill. The lost relationship, the job, the loved one, the worst case scenario, and a flat tire, happening all at once. How I dealt, how I spoke to the people surrounding me. Anugraha~ the grace, that I allowed to flow through me despite my preference for something different.

The sunny vacation, the Yoga retreat or training may open a new portal in the mind and heart acting as a reminder to me of what a bigger life can look like. Providing, a dose of hope, an insight into a different reality, widening my sense of possibility, to allow me to soldier on with difficult conversations, setting stronger boundaries, and continuing to establish an unwavering connection to myself.

In 2018, my only resolution is for more peace in my home and in my inner circle ( and maybe that bit about gliding around looking winter fabulous). I’m no longer accepting nonsense or noise, it’s full steam ahead.

Many Blessings in 2018,
Colleen Lila
