This is a great time to pause and decide what “luggage” we wish to keep carrying with us.
We can do this at any time of the year, but the approach of the New Year seems to give a cultural pause and a physical change (the new calendar) that is useful for stopping if only once a year from our mad rush to [you fill in the blank].
It’s also a great time of year for blogs about pausing and reflecting on what we’ve accomplished, setting intentions for some period of time coming up, making an assessment of whether or not we’re where we want to be – and deciding whether or not this is the year we’re going to do something about that (since we are the only ones in control of exactly what we let in and let go of in our life).
Before I sent you tra-la-la-ing around the internet, I’m going to give you the benefit of some of my own reflecting: a coaching special for January and February 2012. I have been looking over last year (see? I even take my own advice!) and find it was a good year indeed. Time to give back to my community (what better way to celebrate a good year?!). So for January and February, I am offering 5 hours of coaching for $375.00. My regular hourly rate is $125, with a special of $500 for a block of 5 hours paid up front. So for two months I am offering close to 50% off my hourly rates.
Why? Because every client I work with changes my life in ways I don’t always anticipate. So in making this offer I am opening myself to adventure and at the same time sharing my talents with folks who need them. Win-Win! Read more here. Contact me: info@TammyVitale.com
Here’s my gift to you: some of my favorite blog posts!
Resources to support your journey:
My list of books I love
Sell Your Art, Keep Your Soul (my art coaching class in affordable packets)
(and of course) Wylde Women’s Wisdom (where you can also see the journal I created especially for Wylde Women!)
And since this is the quiet period of the holidays when everyone is recooperating, getting organized, reflecting, chatting with close friends about things that matter, as promised above, here are some of my favorite folks to read and chat with on-line. I know you will enjoy them too!
Endings and Beginnings by Ruth Davis at SparktheHeart.com
Stacey Curnow – Midwife for Your Life
Purplicious Passion Path (because I just love Mo’s energy!)

Of course there are many many more – much of them connected to FaceBook. That will be another post.
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about. Charles Kingsley
