December #reverb11

Hard to believe a whole year has gone by ....
I am going to participate in #reverb11.   Still not quite sure of my game plan.   The idea is to use the month to reflect on the past year to help steer yourself forward.

If I could describe this last year I would say it has been less turbulent overall.  I have made some definite gains health wise.  My guiding word for 2011 was stretch and I have done that. 

I have stepped out of my comfort zone and I am actively involved in two projects.   I have other ideas percolating. 

I participated in a couple of online courses. 
I have made some new friends.

I feel more at peace with the whole being a parent of teenagers.

I have read some good books. 

But, there have been tough moments.  Moments where my heart ached something fierce by the recognition that I was not ultimately in control.  That I could not save anyone.  Tears of frustration, anger and disappointment hung on my cheeks.  I have suffered through a bit of a dark night of the soul.

I am ready to start again.

And, here, in December, it seems as though, with struggles and gains, you are where you should be?
It seems so to me - ready to start again.

You are a strong person. Recognizing that control is a myth is so powerful. Freeing really. Love to you.
