I, for one, enjoyed having one more little nudge to slow down, be mindful and focus on what’s most important.
As for 2012, I have 2 resolutions:
- More kindness. Kindness to myself, my body, the people I love and the people I don’t.
- Savoring life. There are so many beautiful aspects of life already here each day. I want to marinate longer in them.
And….drumroll please…our Sanity winner is Jonathan of the Canary Files! Congrats, Jonathan, and I’ll be in touch this week. And give yourself a gift and stop by Jonathan’s wonderful blog.
Thanks for organizing the sanity challenge. It was a great reminder to take it easy and enjoy the holidays. It was also a great start for some New Year Resolutions for me. Hope you have a great year!
Happy New Year, Cheryl! And congrats to Jonathan. Despite my best intentions, my holiday season was decidedly NOT sane enough. . . so I only got my sanity-challenge related post up yesterday! I’m using the concept as a way to kick off the new year instead. ;-). Sorry I missed it, but I do appreciate the nudge to rethink how I’m approaching work, balance, health. . .well, all of it. And I certainly enjoyed reading about your own goals and which ones did/didn’t stick, and why–an inspiration to be sure!
Good post and reminder to rethink wellness and lead a balanced life, not easy to do but certainly important. Happy New Year!
Wow, this was a wonderful suprise! When I first read about the Challenge, I did see that there was a prize, but as far as I was concerned, tackling the challenge and seeing it through was the reward in and of itself. Thanks again, Cheryl, for spearheading this event and allowing all of us to stop, even if just for a moment, and consider the benefits of a mindful, body-honoring, and present existence. 🙂
