Sunday Scribblings - New/New Year

I always start out the year doing something new. Kind of like a sacred ritual with my soul. Since my birthday falls 12 days into the New Year - I like to experiment and stretch beyond my comfort zone with something new - a way to commemorate the New Year. Like a milestone of accomplishment I can look back at during the rest of the year .

On my 36th birthday, I learned how to surf at an all women's surf camp. A week full of femmes- bruises - water and more water and plenty of sun.

On my 37th birthday, I went skydiving. Check out my previous blog

On my 38th birthday, I went to WSM Noah's 20th high school reunion and met some amazing brothers and sisters that he'd gone to school with in Israel.


I also took a flying leap on a trapeze (did it 3x) and learnt some archery and wall climbing as well.

This year, as I approach my 39th birthday, I challenged myself to meet new friends - expand my circle, open my heart and trust the Universe. This week before my birthday - I have given myself a new experience of communion - connecting at heart level.

In these last two days, I have met two amazing, powerful, passionate and beautiful Goddesses - FLFTs - Fearless Leaders of Feminine Truths. Breaking bread and sharing stories and giggling and laughing and hugging. So far, so excellent!!! I opened myself up to new friends and found soul sisters from previous lifetimes.

I am so grateful. I am so blessed.

I'm no so physically brave so I'll just read your reports and hold my breath in fear. Grin. But I do love meeting people and finding soul sisters. Great post!

I am approaching my 39th birthday this year, and you have inspired me to see how many great memories and experiences having a milestone goal for the year can be. As I look back now, I do not really have any that I can say are special. I recently bought the book "You Can Do It" with the intentions to start my own journey.
