Cleanliness and garbage along the Camino are significant challenges. Recently the American Pilgrims on the Camino group hosted a contest to raise awareness and get pilgrims engaged in being a part of the solution. I was one of 24 people who entered this contest. I did not win the contest and I understand why…but my entry […]

We live in a consumer society. When something breaks, we are far more likely than our ancestors to just get a new one. We also have manufacturers who’ve created “planned obsolescence” where they actually create items that are less durable or work to create new features in that next phone that comes out, making our […]

What participants have to say about My Best Year

Carrie – Portland, OR

“This program feels great! I have renewed some good habits and started others that fit my new lifestyle as an empty nester. I am getting to bed earlier, getting up earlier, getting more exercise, and reading lots of books on how to develop even more healthy habits. I’m eating at home more and using my time more effectively. Thanks for the inspiration!”

“The topics, ideas, and support from everyone in the group has really helped me stay focused and motivated.  Each topic has helped me think through my habits and intentions in different ways. I am especially grateful for the stability of this group as it turns out to be a particularly challenging year – my circumstances have suddenly changed twice in the last 6 months. I find myself now in a major transition in life – moved to a new city to live with elderly parents and also just retired. My current life requires a level of patience and flexibility I would not have had. It’s been wonderful to have a such a diverse group with similar interests and intentions for life. Kathy does a great job of keeping it interesting, thought provoking, and positive. I really appreciate that.”

“My Best Year has helped me in several different ways: first being a part of a community and having support throughout the year has provided me with the structure I needed. Secondly, I appreciate everything Kathy provided to us, this directly impacted my growth in creating the life that I want. Third, this program gave me the confidence to take more risks, the knowledge I’m not alone, and the belief in myself to imagine possibilities. I didn’t envision this would impact me as it has and it has inspired me to go further than I thought I could.”
