Diana Filo opened a KIPP Charter School in West Philly. She’s a yogi and was secretly voted Miss Congeniality at Summer Camp 2015.
My word or theme for the year was delight.
In this year, I am most grateful for my nephew. He has been such a blessing to the entire family.
Because of this year, I now believe I can do hard things.
To reflect on my year, I will do HoCo [Holiday Council]! Obviously.
My favorite end-of-year tradition is ringing in the New Year with a relaxing event. Last year, I took a yoga class through midnight and the year before I had a ton of sushi and watched a movie. I love spending New Year’s Eve with the person I know I’ll spend the rest of my life with (me!). 🙂
In 2017, it will be time for blossoming.
My word or theme for the year was listen.
In this year, I have honored those little niggling feelings in my gut. Last year (2015) was a year of intense growth and change — it was a whirlwind. This year, I wanted to approach my businesses and my life with more awareness and more intention. Instead of blindly setting out to do what I thought I should do, I wanted to make sure that I was doing what felt right.
Because of this year, I now believe in myself more. I know what is right for me, my family and my businesses. I just need to take the time to ground myself, get organized, be proactive and really listen to what my gut and the universe is telling me.
In 2017, it will be time for growth and creativity. Creative growth, if you will. It will be time to let some things go, so that I can let other things flourish.
In 2017, I will remember that I need personal time too! I can be a powerhouse when I want to be. But I also need, and deserve downtime. That is crucial for recharging and keeping things going.
