December Day 5. How on earth did that happen?
I noticed my dear friend Ramona is participating Reverb 11 this year. Last year I tried it and did pretty well. Fizzled out at the end but I got some good reflection time out of it. I hadn’t seen much about it this year and I guess the originators of Reverb 10 have nothing to do with Reverb 11. It’s nice to see someone has taken up the baton with it.
Encapsulate 2011 in one word.
In January I had chosen trust as my word for the year. I was working on Ali Edwards One Little Word project and it seemed like the best word for me. Trust issues seemed to plague me my whole life and I have a great talent in creating the scenarios I seem to fear most. I spent most of the year working it out and it came down to the simple concept of trusting myself. If I have that I’m golden. It’s taken me the greater part of the year, but I feel like I chose the right word, I did the right work, and I’m ready to move forward with this word, this feeling, as I thing I understand and practice.
What, or whom, did you let go of this year? Why?
Anxiety. Oh I still have it, but it doesn’t rule me anymore. I can notice it (most of the time) before it gets the better of me. I have come a long way, however, it not letting anxiety run my life.
What are your ambitions? What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to/detracts from your ambitions? Can you eliminate it?
This is one area I have become really focused on over the last year. I want to live a happy, fulfilling life. I have created a company that seeks to help others do the same. I focus on my health and well-being and that of my family. In this perspective I am quite literally living my dream. The trick is to stay cognizant of that fact and appreciate it every day.
What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2012?
Trusting myself, forgiving myself, believing in myself. All this is capable because I finally get it. And I have the most amazing people in my life. The most dedicated loving man I could have ever imagined; the most challenging, smart, creative, beautiful children; the best family and friends a girl could ever dream of. I am blessed truly and healed by love.
If a film were made about ONE thing that happened to you in 2011, what would the film be called? Describe the plot/story.
I’m going to take a by on this one. No idea where to start. Don’t really want to relive this year even in movie land. Loving today and looking forward to the future.
