It’s the beginning of a new year of life for me today and I have to admit, even though the world is burning and so awful in so many ways, I’m feeling better than I have in a long time. I ran my fastest 5k this week, I’m doing yoga every day and my back no longer hurts, and I’m more comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever been. That doesn’t mean life is perfect, far from it, but it does mean that I feel like my foundation is setting me up to deal with the crap a whole lot better than I have in the past.
