ringing in a new new year


mondrian miami tonite should be fun

hi guys. thanks so much for the support on a couple of real tough days. you totally understand and no, it’s not a mirror. it’s a lifestyle. i just don’t want ’09 to go as just another year with more resolutions and not real changes. one thing i know is my best days start when i do yoga or meditate even for 30 seconds. if i can get on a little (any) routine it would be really helpful. my next 30 seconds i’ll play with the kitten! (who’s now a tween princess)

anyway that’s the plan. to take life in 30 second intervals. just be really aware and breathe deep.

happy new year everybody and so sorry to worry any one and be dramatic. guess that’s what it takes tho, hope i’m ready to dive in and stick to really focusing on life itself!

not sure what this looks like in person but i like it anyway


liz says there are dolphins so i have to go out! (i still haven’t gotten my 30 seconds in yet today so it’s a good excuse to grab my mat, pvcs and all :P

hey i’m back for a sec cause i just came across this and thought of you http://www.dailyom.com/articles/2008/16540.html

gonna grab a bite and get ready so have a great day and night where ever you are and all the best to you and the ones you love. thinking of you! xoc

    Happy New Year, Claudia! One tool that has really helped me is what I call my visual board. It’s nothing more than a collage of what I want in my life. I have pictures on it but also a lot of words like centered, peaceful, productive…you get it. It’s in my bedroom so I see it every morning. It helps me stay present in my life and directed towards my goals. I need this because I can go many directions in my head and in my life at the same time and not get anything done, finished or started. It’s pretty amazing how well it works. You’ll find what works for you and when the fit is right, you’ll take the time to do it. I think you’re gonna be just fine!

    Happy New Year to you from Norway!



  18. Chessa replied:

    happy new year! I hate making resolutions for the same reason that you do…
    Like Petunia, I have a friend who uses a visual board, as well. She swears by it and I’m thinking I might try it. Sometimes we just need a little help.
    all the best to you in 2009 and beyond!


  19. theparisapartment replied:

    the boards sound like a great idea. i’ll start one and post it when it starts to take shape. thanks old friends for the good wishes, i’ll be by to see what you’re up to too! xoc

    Ahhh yoga and meditation. When in doubt, I always turn to these two techniques from bringing balance back to my life. It sounds like you are on the path towards more happiness…and that is half the battle. : )


  21. Lauren replied:

    Best of luck with your resolutions! I feel the same, and hopefully real changes will occur! usually I just forget them a few weeks in!
    Happy New Year!

    Routines get a bad rap. A good routine is essential to living with less stress.

    Stop and smell lots of flowers this year. Best wishes for a fantastic 2009.
