This past year I have added many new technical experiments to my blog including: YouTube videos, iPhone applications, linking up with new inspiring bloggers and I am thrilled to have upgraded to a new iPhone.
The iPhone has advanced my skills as a photographer, while enabling my ability to record information to my parents automatically in this new age of technology and energy.
"Inside Out" has reached almost 11,200 page views that expands the globe. That alone is truly inspiring to me. When I began this blog, I wasn't even sure, if or how anyone would find it. This is what you hear bloggers often say. It takes a level of detachment to write weekly, while putting your heart and your passion on the line. My motto has been: "Well just get over it." Either people will read it or they will pass it by. My blog isn't for everyone.
I personally would like to thank everyone who has read it this year and shared this blog. Simply passing it along to others is a blessing in disguise. I am deeply humbled and grateful.
I wanted to review this week, the most popular entries since I have started writing in August of 2011. I will start with the top six .
Coming in at number 6 is: Come Gather Round / Books for the holidays.
author, Carin Berger contact me personally to thank me. I still will be featuring my, Come Gather Around Series, along with new added pages featuring spiritual books for children and families. New books will be added monthly, as I find them in my travels. Do you have a special spiritual favorite? Let me know about it and I will research the story, to see it can be added on my favorite lists.
Coming in at number 5 is: Accepting a moment in Divine Gratitude
This entry was life changing personally for me last Christmas and I have dedicated this year to actually practicing living one day of gratitude at a time. I actually participated in my own experiment this summer at taking a photo a day to document my gratitude.
This short entry features a mini short film by Louie Schwartzberg. I review this video often because it truly uplifts my spirit.
Coming in at number 4 is: A week together
This is another entry that is dear to my heart. This particular entry is all about Education for Life and the Foundation years. I also love to watch how the children have grown in our classroom over the past year using these principals.
I am happy to announce this Valentine entry and the song highlighted was our "theme song" in our classroom last year. It was written by one of our parents, Eva Tree. Thank you for listening and reading about our valentine activities.
This entry has many memories shared in my classroom. The children love to feel their energy in their hearts and expand their love each day to others. Thank you for reading it and sharing in our joy.
Now here is where a little drum roll happens.....
This is my favorite entry, I have written to date and humbled that it is the most popular.
It came to me right after a deep morning meditation. I don't take any credit for my writings personally. These are messages from the divine.
I also would like to thank a few very special people who have helped share the message of "Inside Out."
My editor and writing professor Bekka Davis, and the Education for Life teachers who share ideas and inspirations together weekly.
I would also like to thank, Susan Tara Meyer from River Blissed and Sally Haughey from Fairy dust teaching. Susan and Sally are kindred spirits with very successful blogs of inspiration. I have learned so much from them.
I would also like to thank my spiritual guides, Joseph Cornell from Sharing Nature with Children and Nitai Deranja the founder of the Living Wisdom Schools. Both of these great souls have been a guiding light for inspiration and my service to children and families.
With Beauty before me and behind me as I walk,
The year ahead looks very exciting and promising.
