Lessons learned in 2011 from A-Z

Art heals the heart and makes the soul sing
Car accidents are awful – leave earlier, drive slower. Also, courage comes in many forms.
Dental surgery sucks – brush and floss really well
Everything creative is not necessarily great (but most things are)
Finding out what's true for me changes with time but the essence of who I am remains the same
Goodness begets goodness
Help (asking for it) can be a really good thing and gets easier with time - helping others, even better
Independence is also good
Just do it and trust that it will be OK regardless of expectations
Kangaroos are not the only things that hop all over the place
Learning is its own reward (so is loving)
Marriage has its ups and downs (tho mostly ups).
Never give up on something you believe in (and if you lose faith, act as if)
Old people have often learned what’s really important (love)
Practice kindness to yourself and others (self part isn’t always easy)
Question what’s really important
Realize that this is it – “your one precious life” and try to live it with integrity
Seek out like-minded souls to grow with
Understand that life leads from one mystery to another
Very often we think we’re going one place when we’re really going another
What matters most is taking the journey with heart
eXtraordinary things happen when you take risks
Yellows like Quinacridone Gold can look light golden light
Zesty energy comes from eating well (no flour or sugar), being creative, and loving well

Wishing all of us a magical and transformational 2012 full of unicorns and rainbows and other fabulous miracles

Here’s a wonderful link to the symbolic meanings of unicorns
