To new beginnings!

Only 1.5 hours left of 2011 as of the time of writing this.  To be honest, I think I'll be glad to see the end of this year!

After a tough 2010, this year started with new beginnings.  It was our first year of 'officially' home educating, although as an unschooling family, it was more of a continuation of what we were already doing.  I started a hobby business and found my spark in the process.  Unfortunately, the second half of the year was not so good, as I have detailed in previous posts.

2012 is likely to bring more stressors that are out of our control, but I think the main thing is not engaging with energy drainers as much as possible.  I am really enjoying the work of Bruce Lipton, PhD at the moment and reading about quantum physics vs Newtonian physics.  I always knew that emotional health affected our physical health, but it's fascinating learning the mechanics of it on a sub-atomic level.  The 'stuff' of the last couple of years has not only had an effect on my physical health, it's also impeded on my availability to help Jasmine a lot of the time.   I just haven't had the reserves or energy.  I can't change every situation, but I can change the way I deal with things.

So that's the plan for next year.  No grand plans of losing 30kg or any such thing - although I wouldn't complain  if it happened.  But 2012 is all about focussing on the good & mediating the less desirable.  It's time to be more available to my child & less worried about people who only care about their own agenda.  It's about making sure Jasmine has the tools she needs to thrive as she moves another year closer to adulthood.

I wish you & your family peace, happiness & prosperity in the New Year.  I'll sign off with some pics from the last few weeks of 2011.  Thanks for sharing our journey so far xxx
