Today marks the last day I will be in my office in 2014. It was such an amazing year for me; I learned so much from everyone, and had a great time doing it! I thought this would be a good time to reflect a little on this past year, and share some of my hopes for the next.
To prepare to write this blog post, I decided to read through my posts from last December and January. I was honestly expecting to get a little chuckle, or possibly even a gentle headshake, out of myself when I was shiny and new to the business world (unlike the expert I am now, naturally). Instead I was pleasantly surprised at how much is still true.
I had forgotten how much I used to have to compensate for with my wrist issues. Partly it’s normal for me now, but I realized that my wrist is very gradually healing. My flare-ups are less frequent, and my pain is much less severe in between them. One day I think it will even be weight-bearing in extension again.
Which brings us to my greatest triumph of the year: discovering that I am still capable of working deeply with some of my clients. I continue to honor and respect the gentle work I do, but I enjoy being able to work directly with the deeper muscles on some of my clients. Reading about where I was one year ago versus today, it’s clear that I have made more physical progress than I have been giving myself credit for.
Next year I plan to keep on improving my strength and stamina, I’ll keep finding new and interesting ways to practice self-care to share on here. I also plan to allow myself to speak a little louder and be more visible next year.
Thank you all for a wonderful year. May 2015 bring us all joy, prosperity, and greater wisdom. With Love, Margaret
