I have spent the past year recovering from a freak accident I had on August 25, 2016. It has been the roughest, most challenging year of my life. When the various health professionals asked: "What is your goal?" my answer was always the same. I want to be me again. I achieved my goal. And here are some things I learned:
Every day life can be a pain in the ass but I would much rather downsize, organize, unpack or shop at The Container Store than have to learn how to walk again. Take nothing for granted. Life can change in a literal instant.
I've been on the spiritual path as long as I can remember. This journey reminded me that my spiritual practices give me tools that inform every aspect of my life. Mindfulness moved from a meditation practice to a way to heal and help others get organized. I'll be writing more about that over the course of the next year hopefully in a new book.
And now let's turn our attention to the coming busy months and prepare together to have a spectacular holiday season. It's great to be back!
