December 1st - #reverb12
you will notice the lovely multi-coloured badge on the right hand side of my blog... I was super pleased to find a #reverb12 group. You can follow along by checking out I Saw You Dancing and read all about the process and history here.
Day 1: How are you starting?
Grateful - that I found this group. I stumbled on #reverb09 back when Gwen Bell was omnipresent on the internets... I became part of the larger group in 2010.. things changed and 2011 was more of an individual attempt - I still used December as a time of personal reflection but, I missed the common purpose and group interaction. I follow Debra on twitter and she led me back to Kat and here we are.
Damp - I walked in a parade today. It poured rain. I was volunteering for work.
Full - of popcorn. A treat and munching on it in moderation seems to have no negative repercussions on the digestive track.
A little sad - I am not going to pretend that everything is grand because it isn't but then whose life is not messy. I am much more comfortable with the messy bits. So, that is growth. But, I still am sad for lives not lived. Choices that are being made. Reconciling myself to the fact that I have very little (if any) control over my children's choices.
word of the year
it is that time again
this year my word was strength
a lot of things happened this past year.
at this point I have no idea what my word for 2013 will be
I am hoping this month of reflection will bring something into focus
