This day pretty much encapsulated an end to a brilliant ten months. It was the end for the Mayans, but something aligned in my life in 2012. I was happier and more grateful for my life in a way I had not been since I was a child. It was a year of physical and emotional transformation. Long term friendships were seeded on a deeper level, more than ever before. I reconnected with old friends at my twenty year high school reunion. My heart opened up to intense new connections. I met many amazing and inspiring women. I started running. I ran my first half marathon. I raised money for a cancer charity. I put the loss of my dad to cancer four years prior behind me. And I started living. It was a year of achieving self actualisation. I found myself. I was happy.
