Best Nine meme is an invitation to reflect




I read a recent post that suggested the ending of the year is a great opportunity to quietly reflect on what some of your personal or professional highlights were. What about your wellness highlights? That might be a nice lens to look through. What did you do for your own personal wellness in the last year, that you can thank yourself for? How did you recognize the importance of your own well-being? What self-care practice did you explore or incorporate? Here’s the challenge: DO NOT explore the ways in which you fell short from your standards or expectations. Instead, as Susan Reifer beautifully explained when she laid out how a gratitude practice can work, try focussing on something you have agency over, something you can thank yourself for doing.

I am thankful for the constant reminders that well-being is a joint effort, and this is absolutely the right place for me to be working on mine. That’s because of you.

And all our contributors. Who are willing to speak up, show up, and be seen. Which requires courage and vulnerability. And which makes us all better.

According to the Best Nine roundup of our instagram account, this year @thewellnessalmanac received 12,736 likes to 334 posts. That’s a lot of love. Thanks for helping spread it.

Hi Pemby Peeps. My name is Tracey Rozsypalek and I’ll be taking over for a week. My husband, Rudy, and I moved to Pemberton in 1993. We started a business, raised our two boys and formed many good friendships here. We created a wonderful life in Pemberton together and were very happy. Five years ago, my husband was in a tragic accident and died as a result of it and more recently my father passed away from cancer. Lisa asked if I would take over this page with the suggestion to do so about being the best version of yourself through loss. Loss is something I know about, and unfortunately many people do as well. Grief and loss comes in many different forms, and no one goes through life without having to go through it in some way shape or form. By sharing a bit of my journey and perspective my hope is that perhaps it can shed a glimmer of light for others who are dealing with any kind of adversity in their life. I certainly don’t have all the answers, but today I’m thankful to say, i have more and more days feeling happy and grateful for what I do have in my life and that is something I would never had imagined five years ago. Grief is something that can’t be rushed it’s a process, and an individual one. There is no road map and no right or wrongs, but one important thing to know is that it does get easier with time. Grief can be all encompassing and impossible to see through. In my experience, bit by little bit, with setbacks in-between, life enhancing moments happened and then they happened more and more frequently with the passing of days, weeks, months and years. I’ll start off with that thought for now. So please join me this week and I’ll try my best to communicate some of the lessons and positive influences which has helped me get to where I am today. This community, and the lovely people who are as lucky as I am to call it home, have played a huge part in my healing. #lifewithmeaning. #seehappy. #ilovepemberton. #lookupnotdown. #bepositive #pembylife. #embracelife #everydayisanewday. #livelife #celebratelife #lifeisshort
