2015 Year in Review

2015 – Regenesis

This year felt like one big rite of passage into womanhood.

As I sit here at the end of November, I take a deep breath and let it out. I am integrating and reflecting and taking time to let it all sink in.

I am no longer Tanya Paluso. I am now Tanya Kozlowski. Mother to Kali. Wife to Brent.

As someone who creates a lot of urgency and moves forward very quickly, I am for the first time taking my time, slowly savoring all of this. There is no rush. There is no hurry. I am enjoying the present moment.

overcoming fear of putting something out there

A week ago, I got a call from my friend, Peter, asking for information on how I did my book launch last year. He was super inspired by what I had put together with women reading passages from the book as well as musicians rocking the house. Over 70 people in our community rallied at the local coffee shop and turned it into a huge celebration. He shared that he was feeling so vulnerable in putting his book out there and asking everyone to come to his launch.

Year in Review (Part 2)

I received a ton of positive feedback about last week’s Year in Review and I decided that I needed to continue to share my process of completion of 2014 and the creation of 2015, making this a series.

After doing the Year in Review where I went month by month through the year to tease out highlights and lessons, something still felt incomplete.

So I asked myself the question: what’s still incomplete from 2014? What are you still beating yourself up about? Then I went through the categories of my life to see what was still there in the shadows.

2014 Year in Review: My Year of Death and Rebirth

I started 2014 for a week in bed, sick, going through an intense healing process. I had co-created a New Year’s Eve party and ironically stayed home while the rest of my community enjoyed what I co-created. A lesson of letting go, taking care of myself, and trusting the leadership in others.

Now as I reflect on the entire year, I see that the beginning was appropriate for a year of Death and Rebirth and truly understanding The Miracle of Creation.

I needed to start in bed, to be resting, to be cleansing and purifying for what I consider to be a very powerful year where I birthed my book, Sistership Circle and become pregnant with my first baby. Her soul said, “Mama, I’m coming in during this year that you dedicate yourself to feminine leadership! I’m one of those new generation feminine leaders!”

I fully surrendered this year to the feminine and found myself having breakthrough after breakthrough in every area of my life.

hOMe

I’m hOMe. For the first time since I left my parents house at 18, I have my own place. I’ve lived all over the world, but never felt home and never created my own space that felt like mine. Until now.

Pretty unbelievable but true. I never valued it; instead I valued adventure and a nomadic lifestyle with no roots. For the first time, I want to ground and nest and settle into my sacred space.

What’s so amazing about this experience is that I get to do it in partnership. It’s OUR home. My first home is with my baby-daddy, my husband-to-be, my beloved Brent Kozlowski. We get to create together.

So grateful. In awe of what we manifested. And celebrating because we deserve to live in a beautiful place we love.
