like catching onto the idea that i am a creative being (at age 45)
but it is the starting that counts
and i see the cool kids are doing this project called REVERB10
and having words for the year has been a powerful force for change in my life
- 2 years ago my word was adventure - that year i went to Borneo
this year my word has been congruence - and i am much more on the outside what i feel on the inside...
so the prompt for day 1 of reverb10 is
December 1 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? (Author: Gwen Bell)
2010 in one word is shift - i have shifted more into the life i desire, i have shifted into my powerful truth
i see (pottymouth that i am) that that word contains shit and f - i think i have told a lot of shit to f off in my life and that seems appropriate too!
one year from today - 2011 Decemeber - i am sitting at my computer, the girls should be getting ready for school, am i am looking outside at green ... and i see this years word is gratitude
i know that living in deep gratitude for the treasure of life, family, abundance, this beautiful planet allows me to experience more of the magic of synchronicity, the calling of my deeper purpose, love and wonder to flow in
who wouldn't want more of that.....
day 2's prompt is December 2 Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it? (Author: Leo Babauta)
i don't write everyday because i don't make space for journaling... i could make space but then it becomes one more thing on the list of things to do -
i like the way this blog is there for me when i want to express something i have been chewing over in my heart...
The colour of the sky *the ocean * Elizabeth and Maeve * people who reach beyond the ordinary * genuine generosity *good food * watching things grow * the miracle of birth *a woman's power *tenderness in all its forms * the cycle of life * courage * people with a sense of fun * compassion * beautiful jewellery * art that is made from the heart - without a view to the purchaser or the market but made because it has to come *Clarissa Pincola Estes * grace
LIKE SANDS THROUGH THE HOURGLASS THESE ARE MORETHINGSTHATITHINK
i welcome you with warmth and love to the thoughts that grab me .... and the way they come out of my fingers when i make the time in my day as a mother and artist and poodle walker to write them down.....
