7 little things that bring big things + a bonus tip

Seeing everyone’s New Year’s intentions can be frustrating if you’re not sure where you want to go. I’ve found that focusing on daily activities that ground me always bring me joy, clarity and somehow magically, the big things get resolved.  That’s what I did in 2011 and the year unfolded better than I could have imagined.

I spent time in Australia, Alaska, camped along the California coast, watched my niece dance with the Rockettes in Boston, saw one of Oprah’s last shows,  wrote for an Australian home design magazine, wrote a guest post for designer, Tobi Fairley”s blog, began health counseling school, moved deeper into a loving relationship, moved into (and decorated) a beautiful home and ended the year with a dog (a testament to divine intervention… I had no intention of getting a dog until Bisbee came into my life… and no idea how much I would love him.)

Here are the little things that online casino australia work for me… what works for you?

  • sitting, meditating for 20 minutes each day… probably the most important on the list… it helps me slow down and enjoy where I am, not get ahead of myself, or struggle so much trying to figure everything out. 

  • read something inspiring, usually a passage from Journey to the Heart

  • write daily, usually 20 minutes of journaling at 750words.com.

  • get outside, go for a walk, look for beauty, take a picture (I had so much online casino fun w/ this last year that I’m taking a photo class. And now I have Bisbee to join me!)

  • practice yoga…moving, new schedules, new careers, a new way of life has rocked my yoga schedule a bit. Missing classes has only made me realize how important it is in my life. 

  • eating real food... lots happened in the food department for me last year. I ate a lot of kale, drank a lot of green juice, explored sweet potatoes and cooked more than I ever have. The result? I feel so much better.  I never think about my weight and I never knew how good veggies could be. I still have chocolate when I want. I over-do at times, but I don’t even think about it, because I know I’m on the right track. I struggle more with making the time to cook, than the food choices to make.

  • take a bath… I had no idea how therapeutic a bath could be. My yoga teacher suggested oil baths and I discovered Epsom salts… Both work magic, no matter what’s going on in my world.

BONUS: when you enjoy the process, everything comes easier….

I”m looking forward to seeing what 2012 brings. What are your little things?
