Goodbye 2012!

by Stacy

Happy New Year!

I’ve done a lot of reflection on the past year. There were a lot of things I did (and didn’t) do last year, successes and failures, triumphs and disappointments. Isn’t that life?

Top it off with some mixed emotions at the end and I needed to sit with it for a few days.

Some highlights from 2012

And, of course, being pregnant for half the year was sort of a big deal for me. It forced me to slow down, whether I wanted to or not.

I didn’t post as often as I wanted. I didn’t cook as much as usual. I didn’t work with as many clients as I wanted to. But that’s OK.

Ironically, none of my top 5 posts (by views) is from 2012, but I only wrote 31 posts last year. Let’s just say I was ahead of the trends in 2010 and 2011, shall we?

Most Popular Posts of 2012

  1. Spicy Vegan Butternut Squash Soup
  2. Aussie Bites
  3. Peter Reinhart’s Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread
  4. Homemade Vegetarian Kimchi
  5. Quick and Easy Homemade Pickles

Did you try any of those recipes this year? I’ve made all of them again myself.

What’s in store for 2013?

Moving into this new year, I have very few expectations.

Of course I have goals (I need structure or I don’t get anything done), but I’m not attached to them. I’m giving myself permission to fail and be more vulnerable. We’ll see how it goes, but I trust that everything will turn out fine.

I’m still plotting out my course for the year (with a big hole for maternity leave), so instead of running a program in January, I’m starting with a single free workshop.

Thrive Throughout 2013

This one-hour teleclass is on Monday, January 7 at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET and I’d love if you could join me. Not available? The class is recorded and sent out with all the ancillary materials (I heart worksheets).

We’ll cover several strategies of how to set yourself up for success in the next year with clear, concise goals that you actually want to achieve. No more vague “shoulds,” but a real plan for action.

What was your biggest accomplishment of 2012? What’s your intention or goal for 2013?

I need to make those pickles STAT. My previous aversion to homemade pickles was my lack of patience. Problem solved. =)

I moved abroad found out that the country was not for me and then moved again still abroad.

Start something new and continue with the old until I don’t need it any longer.
