Theme Living: Better Than a Resolution!

laurie guest

For a decade now, I’ve been living each year according to a theme. It’s different from a resolution (which we never keep anyways), and I love how it sets the tone for the next 12 months of my life.

Watch to hear what my Theme for 2019 is, and share with me if this is an approach you could get behind! What’s your 2019 Theme for Living?

    Love this idea! Unfortunately, I’m 10 years behind in hearing about all the other explorations (except what you shared here). I don’t know what my theme is – maybe to “relax” and feel it in my whole body, shoulders shrugged. Maybe to create more “space” between activities, work, chores, things I say yes to. I don’t need to book every minute of the day! So great to see you and hear you. You’re amazing!

    Great program! Thank you for sharing! We have been in our studio since 1989 and still going, your words are so true.
    Can you email me the “goodies” to this email address. I’d appreciate it!
