Monthly Round-Up: January 2016

January usually kicks my butt. Seriously. It’s cold, it’s dark, there’s hardly any holidays to break up the long, dull, boring days. But this year, it wasn’t too bad. Maybe it’s the meditation practice that I’ve picked up in the past few months. Maybe it’s a handful of sunny, 60-degree days where I could sit outside and bask in the sunshine. Maybe it was the idea of a yoga retreat that kept me going and that I thoroughly enjoyed. At any rate, I managed to read, I managed to stay sane, I managed to have a good January for once.

My favorite book this month was this:
