Come (into 2021) as you are!
Yay! you made it!
Well here we are in the first week of 2021, and if you've ever signed up for a mailing list, chances are your inbox is being flooded with "resolution"-based messages of "new year- new you."
Well not this email.
Honestly we just want to take a moment to honor and appreciate you just as you are. This last year was unprecedentedly difficult for so many reasons and yet here you are. A fighter, and a survivor. As we all move forward to whatever new experiences 2021 has in store for us (please please please be gentle!), it's easy to get swept up in the idea of a "do-over to get things right" -- but don’t make focusing on yourself and your wellbeing a calendar item that comes & goes. Investing in (and accepting!) yourself will always be important.
As educators we'd like to remind you that You are YOU-- full of value and deserving of pleasure just as you are. We don’t want a "new" you, we want a you who knows yourself, knows your needs, desires, and boundaries, and how to communicate them clearly with others you connect with. Still sound like a tall order? Well no worries fam, we got your back. As you embark on the journey that 2021 has in store, we will be here for you with resources and recommendations to aid you along the way with as much pleasure and wellness as possible, because we could all use more moments of joy moving forward.
If you haven't yet, take a moment to thank your body, heart, and mind for carrying you through some tough terrain. And here's hoping that 2021 sends some "power ups" our way as we explore the next level of game play.
