My One Word WISH for you (and me) in 2022…

Jesus really perfected the skill of walking on water, but for me (a mere unenlightened human) surfing is definitely the next big thing.

I love the feeling of gliding, sliding and dancing on, with and in the water.

It creates a kind of bliss that’s hard to describe.  Freedom, fluidity, fun, adrenaline, endorphins combine in a heady mix of wooo-hooooooo!

And even if the waves haven’t been good, I always get out of the ocean with a huge smile. 

And yet despite loving it so much, I haven’t surfed for over two and a half years.

Yep sometimes in the midst of 

  • being a mom
  • running a business
  • supporting my students
  • being a good partner
  • creating new online training programs
  • living through a pandemic
  • etc. etc. etc. 

We lose touch with the things that really fuel, feed and enliven us. 

In the past 2 years, I certainly did.   But that changed last week as I got back into the water (and then kept going back day after day).

This is why my ONE Word WISH for you (and me) in 2022 is a surfing slang word.


STOKE is an enduring surf expression meaning excited, pleased, happy, thrilled.
It comes from having the fire of your passion stoked! 🔥🔥🔥

This picture, of my first day back surfing, portrays my STOKE!

Thank You!  I appreciate you.

My wish for you in 2022 is for you Marlize to re-ignite old passions and discover new ones that provide the fuel for your best, most delicious and succulent life.
