The Life in Your Years Abraham Lincoln
Dear Mr. Lincoln,
You probably wouldn't recognize the world we live in today, but you'll be happy to know your wise words and steadfast way of being still inspire. No doubt it is the time of year - we are about 36 hours out from 2014 here in Califonia - but these words you spoke are particularly resonant.
"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
This sentiment really makes me think and if I'm honest, I have spent a lot of time passing time, collecting years but often missing the experience of the people, places, and things that have been right there in front of me. I don't think that's something that just happens. I think it's a choice.
As I move into this New Year and all the new years to come, regardless of how many there may be, I want to practice being the kind of woman now, that on her death bed then won't even think to count the years. Instead, may I celebrate a life of love and loss, of joy and pain…may I celebrate richly textured relationships and places…may I celebrate a life fully lived and experienced.
Dear Mr. Lincoln, for your kind words of wisdom, I offer you this Random Note of Gratitude with my commitment to put a great deal more life in my years.

Matthew Sanford Waking Gratitude
You have inspired my weekly Random Note of Gratitude! Often when inspired by an individual, I will actually send my note to another person with the same name, but this time I wanted to go direct to the source. That being said, as much as this is a love letter for you, it is also a love letter for Matthew Sanfords everywhere and for all human beings really.
By complete, utter “random google chance” I have stumbled upon your work – or rather, my mom did and shared it with me. Your grueling, bittersweet, and profoundly life affirming journey and the quiet simplicity and beauty with which your words express that has touched me deeply and captured my imagination. In a world where perfect bodies doing perfect yoga poses are but an instagram feed away, your book “Waking” has triggered me to remember why I loved yoga the first time I got on my mat and why I continue to practice today. Exhilarating though the striking of poses may be, for me it is the creating of space to embrace and breathe into the silence, dark though I fear it may be, that is the truly sweet and transformative work. It’s at this intersection that I am able to connect my mind with my body, if only for a fleeting moment, and sip the sweet nectar of presence in being.
From the bottom of my singing heart, I thank you Matthew for bravely being who you are, for courageously having the experiences you have had, and for transforming them into your magnum opus. The world breathes easier because of you.
With love and gratitude,Jana

Plastic Saddle Nat Stuckey Gratitude
I just got turned on to a groovy, old country tune by Nat Stuckey called, “Plastic Saddle.” As good of a personal theme song as I’ve ever laid ears on, I’ve been inspired to send my weekly Random Note of Gratitude to you, another man that shares his name. I hope you have a theme song of your own Nathan, a little number that lights you up, quickens your step, and allows you to channel the complete amazingness that is you. For being in this world and doing your thing as only you can, I’m sending you my most heartfelt, “leather saddle” kind of gratitude. Anything less just wouldn’t do!
All the best,Jana
