Wow! It's a new year and a bright and exciting one at that. This is the time of year that I like to look at what I'm thankful for (I never make New Year's Resolutions, a waste of energy in my opinion). I have so much to be thankful for. Here's a partial list.
*My wonderful partners and poly family. You all know who you are.
*The amazing people in my life, too numerous to list. Kinky friends, Landmark friends, Wet Spot friends, Co-op friends, old cafe day friends, new friends, sex-education friends, even friends from my old hippie days all bring me joy and happiness.
*My bio family. I've been privileged to get to know mother (I didn't meet her until I was 19) as more than a mother, but as a good friend. My Aunt, my brothers, my sister and her amazing family, my step mother and her husband, Grandma and my incredible cousin, Veronica are all such important parts of my life.
*My job! Who else can say they are the executive director of a Sex Positive Community Center. No one. I am truly blessed.
*Erotic Seattle Education LLC that I share with Teri and Pan. We're getting ready to take the world by storm, beginning with Seattle and not stopping until we've covered the planet. :)
*Deciding to be a lifestyle coach. I can't tell you have fulfilling this has been. Knowing that I'm making a such difference in people's lives is thrilling.
*My Co-op. I live in the absolutely coolest co-op. It's inhabited by an eclectic group of Seattlites with the average age of, I'd say 75.
*My health. Goddess willing, it continues to be fine. Oh, I'm creaking and crackling here and there and I'd love to lose a bit of weight, but overall I'm happy and healthy and on my way to living to be 110.
*Those of you who read this blog. I'm always surprised when someone comes up to me and says, "I read your blog today". Not that what I write isn't worth reading, but that sending a post out into the "ether" is not always that personal and it's always a bit of a jolt to realize that others read what I write.
*Speaking of writing, I'm thankful that I've got several writing projects and friends who are going to keep at me to keep at it.
There's more that I'm thankful for, but I'll leave it at this for now.
I just want to say that I'm looking forward to 2007 and beyond. As it has been already said, "The best is yet to come."
