#Reverb10 – Day One: One Word.

I decided to participate in this year’s #Reverb10.

Last year, I heard many, many wonderful things about #best09 from Cali and because she is part of the crew putting on the #reverb10, I was even more anxious/excited to jump head on into this challenge.

What’s it all about, you ask?

Reverb 10 is a daily blogging challenge throughout the month of December. Each day, participants are given a prompt which will spark stories and reflections on the past year. It’s also designed to put you in a mindset to manifest ideas for how you would like to start off 2011. Sound cool? Join the challenge!

Prompt: One Word.
Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

In thinking about the last year, the best word I can think of to describe it is simply new.

New job.

New relationship.

New friendships.

New music.

New blog.

New experiences.

New car.

New goals.

Visiting new places.

The last year was good to me. Sure, we had our ups and downs, 2010 and me, but I believe if you continue to look to the future and keep your chin up, you can get through nearly anything.

Now, for the word that I’d like to describe 2011… brave.

I want to be brave to build on the amazing things that have happened this year. Be brave enough to finish things I start. Don’t let my fears hold me back. Don’t let my procrastination hold me back. Don’t let anything get in the way of me accomplishing what I know I’m capable of — and more importantly, what I deserve.

Well, here’s to beginning this journey. I’m looking forward to tackling this challenge and meeting others through it. Cheers.

    I think it's brave just saying you want to be.

    saying it out loud (or typing it out loud?) is the first step- you're well on your way to your goals!

    I love this reverb10 business! It sounds like your year really was filled with brand-spanking-newness, and I'm glad that in that I got to call you a new friend! You're lovely, and I wish you the brave-ness you're setting as your intention for 2011 – come see me in PDX :)

    I can definitely identify with the word 'new.' I also had a year filled with new beginnings! I can't wait to hear more about your year as you take big, brave steps on your journey. Great post!

    Thanks! “New” is anything but boring, and that is something I just can't handle. Here's to a wonderful new year and more new things coming your way :)

    You are one amazing new person that came into my life this past year – and now I have to let you go again! Why??? :)

    Plan on seeing me in Portland soon! I think you have an amazing journey ahead of you, young lady. Enjoy every. single. moment.

    Thanks so much, Leonella! It certainly isn't easy.

    I think you are absolutely correct, Shawna. Now that it's in writing, I have to hold myself to it! Crap.
