Holidays Greetings from Phidon
There are only a couple days left before Christmas, and I am all ready to have the kids home. I'm excited to be able to cook for them and spend the Holidays with them. It has been a busy Christmas season here at Phidon and I am so grateful for that, but I also look forward to a quiet few days where I can just relax at home with my family.
I’d like to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. May the New Year begin with good cheer and joy to everyone. We all have new resolutions for the year ahead, with some being perhaps easier to achieve than others. Through the year, we sometimes forget to be good to ourselves in the rush to get things done. This time of year, I think it's important that we all take a breather from all our worries and just relax. I feel the new year gives me a great chance to set out some new goals and plan out how to achieve them. This coming year, I am hoping to slow down and make some more time for myself. I want to read more and keep my eyes (and mind) open often, so that I'm always ready for learning.
So many of you have taken our classses in the past year with our team of talented teachers. I hope that you have enjoyed these workshops and learned new skills that you can continue to use for a long time. There is something special about slowing down the hectic pace of our lives and creating something tangible to cherish at the end of the day. For some of us, this may perhaps be a thank you note or letter to a friend. For others, it might be a painting or sketch made after one of the workshops. Nonetheless, I hope that these workshops have been helpful to everyone in some way.
As we come to the end of a truly fantastic 2018, I wish each one of you the best for 2019 and hope you can all make a bit of time for yourselves in the coming weeks and months. I'm so grateful that so many of you were able to join us at our various special events throughout this year. It has been so heartwarming to be able to share in all the fun and joy. We are always amazed by all the wonderful people we get a chance to meet through Phidon. I look forward to seeing everyone again in the New Year.
