Last year I was greedy. I chose two words: Peace + Community

How did that go?
Well as you may or may not have realised (‘cos, y’know, I hardly *ever* talk about it), on 1st February I opened my own bijou yoga + wellbeing studio in central Cambridge.
Over the last 11 months I have turned a very worn out, dirty and run down office into a haven of peace + serenity. I have a little tribe of people who love being there to do yoga, get treatments, chill out. And I have another amazing (and rather unexpected) tribe of therapists who work there and help me out and share the space and just generally rock.
So Community, check!
As for peace, well, every time I think what an incredibly stressful year it’s been. Every time I think about how I haven’t stopped thinking about work for a micro-second this year. Every time I think «man, it’s really not been very peaceful», I have to remember the sense of utter peace and letting go I get every single time I open the door to that studio.
So Peace, check!
And now suddenly, as if from nowhere, 2014 is just around the corner
And it’s time to chose a whole new word.
At first I thought about «Ease», but it didn’t sit right. I didn’t quite know what I wanted from it.
Then I thought about «Simplicity». 2014 is already shaping up to be quite a year, and I know it’s one where I have to simplify – both in terms of my business, my home and my life.
But it still didn’t feel quite right.
And then I treated myself to one of Amy’s Goddess Readings and there was my word, right there on the reading she had done for me.
I want to be able to trust in my work and my intuition
I want to be able to trust in the universe.
I want to be able to trust in my business.
I want to be able to let go of control, to trust the process of flow and change that is life and to live by the words I say to my clients again and again.
«Just let it flow».
Last year was a lot of wonderful and momentous things. But it was also a lot of worry. And most of the things I was worrying about, it turned out, didn’t need to be worried about.
And so this year I would like to be able to be proactive about the things I can do something about, and just let the rest go.
Let it flow.
Do you have a word for 2014?
