New year, same you?

As silly as it may seem to some, I love the thought that the New Year is a clean slate: a fresh start and an opportunity to change something that we may see as not ideal about ourselves or a particular situation. The chance is there at any and every turn throughout the year, but Jan. 1 provides a neat little package in which we can dream and hope for better things in the twelve months to come.

However, there’s a reason I’m not using the typical, “New year, new you” sentiment. As I hope you have noticed, many Nature’s Pathways’ contributors express a “come as you are” mantra in their monthly articles; one that holds the thought that being your most true self and building on your many strengths is how you’ll grow and learn. Don’t discredit all of the steps and paths you’ve taken to get where you are today — instead, it’s important to learn from your mistakes and celebrate your successes. Your current, authentic state is worth applauding!

I can’t think of a more fitting time to highlight Aerial Dance Pole Exercise on our cover. Dr. Paula Brusky has created a sanctuary for women that focuses on finding your strength and believing in your beauty because we all inherently have both. Sometimes it just takes practice and a self-compassionate heart — and flying in her case! — to fully realize them, and our worth.

Cheers to 2018 and all it brings!
