Closing time and New Beginings!

As I take the time to review the year that has gone by, with its ups and downs; I began to connect to a feeling of deep gratitude for all the amazing things I lived during 2011.
For me, it has been the most amazing year of my life, in every area. I finally decided to have the courage to follow my heart and began making all the changes I have been thinking I wanted to do for the last 2 years.As I have written before, everything in life is a process, and this year I started to put into action many intentions I had in mind for the past couple of years. The process of evaluating what aspects of my life needed to get modified, and the process to clarify what it was I really needed had finally made its fruition as I set the wheel of change in motion.I left my old job, which I am very grateful for, because it helped me develop many of the skills I have today; provided me with the necessary means to support myself and study some of my way through university, it also covered my yoga training for the last 4 years. But most important of all, has been all the awesome people I have met along the way; some of them have become family members thanks to all the time and experiences we have lived together, some others are great friends and others have been around to make me learn a lesson or two and overall have helped me shape who I am today and hence, what I am now able to offer the world through every interaction I have and through my yoga.It has been all those years of learning, going through difficult experiences as well as amazing and awesome ones, that helped me to grow to trust myself enough to begin the journey I embarked on this great 2011. I decided to dedicate myself fully to my passion: yoga, and have also started to work on my writing which I had wanted to do for a long time. I came out of my comfort zone and have been spending time in two different countries, getting close to family and good old friends and making new ones along the way. I´ve had to face the fear of failure by leaving my old job and taking a leap of faith; the fear of rejection by constantly exposing myself through my yoga teaching and through everything I share with you on my writing; and I had began to discover and learn a lot more about myself in regards to my thinking patterns, which ultimately has made me able to consciously start to shift my belief system, to generate different emotions, perspectives and finally is helping me shape the life I really want to live and  love living.
Looking back to this year that is vanishing today, I can’t help but feel grateful for all the awesome people I have in my life; this year I trully felt the support of many of my friends and family in many different ways, none of what I have done this year would have been possible without them, they are my most valued treasure today and will always be for as long as I live.
I have gotten in deeper touch with myself and my spiritual path has grown inmensely, taking this leap of faith in life has made all the difference in enhancing my spiritual practice.
As the year ends, I am also very satisfied with everything I have lived during these 12 months, it has been the most productive year of my life so far and even though there are few things I didn’t get done, I am still very happy with all the progress I made; and I can see clearer than ever, that it was possible because I took the time last year to set my intentions in every area of my life and I defined a path to follow to make it happen. Of course the plans never worked exactly as I planned them, some of them turned out to be better than I thought and others were some of the biggest challenges of my life as my plans got twisted and my ability to cope with stress, face my fears and come up with new ideas and solutions was put to test.I still have many things to work on and I already made a list of all my accomplishments, the mistakes I made, therefore the lessons learned; and as I look ahead to the year to come, I have also made a list of my goals and objectives and I am very excited to start with even clearer intentions than the ones I had a year ago; even better, with the most positive attitude and a sense of deep gratitude and joy for the life I am living. The changing process continues to take shape with the new year.
So please, take the time to review the year that is fading or, that just faded (depending on when you get to read this) and gain clarity in regards to what you have learned, so that you can clearly establish what you still have to work on. Then always remember that when you follow your heart, everything falls into place, all doors open for you and your life will unfold in wonderful ways that are even better than what you can imagine. Keep in mind to have the determination and courage to stay focused on your path, intentions and your heart’s desires as well as your intuition; you will surely start living the life of your dreams as you do this. Remember, the Universe ALWAYS supports what you want, think and are capable of imagining, so aim high and go for it all! Happy New Year!!!
