What we learned in 2014

Chris and I learned a lot in 2014.

For example, living and working in a building under renovation causes wear and tear on our nerves. Getting through this time meant recommitting to our meditation practice, doing yoga, receiving bodywork, getting outside, having fun (even if we had to schedule it), being with friends, and other healthy activities were essential.

We learned to tolerate a certain amount of impatience and testiness.

We learned to be kinder to ourselves. We reminded ourselves that renovation was our decision and the results are ours to enjoy. That doesn’t change the fact that our nervous systems freaked out and needed soothing. We’re relieved construction is complete.

Chris and I experienced formal, informal, and ongoing learning in 2014. Bodyworkers sometimes joke that we are continuing education addicts. What follows does nothing to disprove this.

We’ll begin 2015 with learning, too. On January 3, we’re hosting a Intro to Zentangle workshop.

We’ll learn a lot more about gardening and working with others to produce food.

We’ll continue settling into what is still our relatively new home and hometown. That’s the kind of learning that takes a lifetime. We’re looking forward to it.

What did you learn this year? We wish you a very happy new year.
