#reverb13: Day 21

reverb13Reverb13 prompt: “It’s hard to believe today is the last day of Reverb13! …without thinking too hard about it, grab a pen and some paper and finish the following five sentences: 2014 is going to be MY YEAR because… In 2014, I am going to do… In 2014, I am going to feel… In 2014, I am not going to… In December 2014, I am going to look back and say…

2014 is going to be MY YEAR because who else could I or it possibly belong to? I am going to inhabit, embody, live IN 2014, be present for my life, be in my body, awake in every moment I can be.

In 2014, I am going to do a lot, even though I always say I’m going to slow down, pace myself. And yet, my intention is to focus more on my experience, how I want to feel rather than what I accomplish, so maybe I could also say that in 2014, I am going to do less.

In 2014, I am going to feel free, more at ease, grounded and centered, loved, joyful and grateful, rested and energized, satisfied.

In 2014, I am not going to diet or weigh myself. I am not going to “should all over myself” or smash myself to bits. I won’t abandon myself, won’t apologize for myself, won’t give too much of myself away.

In December 2014, I am going to look back and say “thank you, that was amazing.”

Project Reverb prompt: “Encounters | What thing did you keep encountering this year over and over again?  Was it something you learned from or just a strange coincidence?”

The message that I am enough, that I can trust myself. The idea that I have the right to have the life I want. I don’t have to earn the right to be here, to take up space. I already am what I long to be.

Besottment Reverb 2013 prompt: “What did you change your mind about in 2013? Did you have a change of heart about anything? What was it, and why?”

This is related to the previous prompt, because the change of heart was I used to believe I was broken, needed to be fixed, had something wrong with me. I thought I needed to change, be something different. I was so wrong.

      Good things are happening for us. We’ll both have new boys, although mine will be hairier than yours. 🙂

      Thank you for hosting this, for being so present all the way through. xo
