Music & Goodnesses ~ Dec 31, 2018 – Jan 3, 2019 ~ What Kind of Difference

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. ~ Jane Goodall

Happy New Year, EveryBody! Thank you for being part of the mindful practice that we do together (either in person or virtually).

Jane Goodall’s quote has been in my mind and heart all week and I notice how even small choices in how I spend my time, money, and energy reverberate out in my personal sphere and beyond. Intention offers the opportunity to be clear about what kind of difference we want to make in the world.

With that in mind, choosing a word for the year is a simple and powerful way to rudder decisions to align with your highest values. My word for this year is CLEAR. What’s yours? I’d love to hear.

And if you are looking for a way in to finding a word, this New Year Meditation on Insight Timer is lovely. Find it here. 
– New Year Meditation.

Below are our playlists for the week. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! If you would like to hear the Dan Wilson song, What A Year for a New Year, please send me a message. It’s unpublished and I have permission to share it. And in general, please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

And first, some announcements…
