2007 - The Year in Review

my March (ahem) retrospective that consisting of a rating (on a scale of 1-10) and a few sentences

Love: 10
Cadin and I have been sealed into our own private love pod. We got married. We went to Belize. We practiced.

Profession: 5
Again - I have a job I don’t love. I work as a software engineer.
But I am recognizing the opportunities for practicing being a good person while at work, so the whole experiences isn’t a total wash. It also reminds me that I am smart.

Finances: 6
We finally set up a joint account and have some idea about saving together. I still have a proclivity for spending money as soon as I make it.

Play: 6
I love trapeze and weekend coffee breaks. I still need more ‘do nothing’ time as my weekends tend to get jam packed with things to do instead of time to be.

Friends: 7
I tried to keep in touch with email and letters as best I could. I was able to take some trips in 2007 and saw some friends I haven’t seen in a long while.

Health: 7
Keeping to a gluten-free diet is pretty easy now. I try to work out a few times a week (pilates, swim, run, yoga). I am still allergic to a million different things, but maybe this is slightly down with my new, stronger immune system.

Creativity: 6
I started creative exchanges with my mom and with Cadin. I am still working on a few photography projects. But best of all, I am learning to let go of the notion of getting things done in order to satisfy my inner artistic demon.

Overall: 7
2007 was a great year :)

Trajectory: 8
As long as I can continue to simplify and be still, my path will continue to become clearer. I am alive to learn about myself and about life and to share what I learn and see along the way.
