Wrap Up of 2012

Well, I hadn't even thought about it, till Joce did hers, but yes, I did make a few knitted items last year. Here's the list:
2 Cowls
6 pairs of socks
10 hats
1 shawl
2 pairs of mitts/mittens
1 "baby layette" (blanket, socks, hat)
1 blanket

Nowhere near the number I usually do, I think, and it hasn't been for lack of wanting to knit, it's about the lack of time! Hmmm...

Since my One Word for 2012 is "ahimsa" one of the yamas of yoga, meaning, in essence "non-harming" just whom am I not harming by neglecting my need for fiber therapy?

Me. So as a result of my neglecting such things (as fiber, and sleep, and such) I'm down with a nasty sinus infection with fever)...

So one of the things I have to remember this 2012 is that hurting myself is the most automatic thing I do...doing too much, not learning to say "no" to protect my time and mental health. And of course, learning to do that in a nice way so I don't harm others, but they see I'm being wise and setting limits...

There's a lot more to ahimsa than this, but we've got a year to explore it...And a lifetime for me to get good at it...

That is a truly wonderful word for the new year! I love it, and I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on practicing ahimsa - goodness knows I need to pay attention to that one myself.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
