Reverb 12 - Day 1

How are you starting this last month of 2012?

Take a moment, close your eyes, take a deep breath and 
ask yourself the question: how do you feel...
... in your body? in your mind? in your day job? in your 
creative life? in your heart?

With a broken down car ... I'm going nowhere fast ....but then looking past that ..... I'm starting out with blessings.  

Blessings of family and blessings of good friends, a wonderful job, a better attitude towards my physical health.  The physical health could improve more, but I'm working on it and things are getting better. 

My heart is full for I've realised that I have so much in my life to be grateful for.  I have many blessings.  Wonderful friends who care about me and people that I care about.  Some people don't have that.  They are lonely.

I'm starting out knowing that I've learnt great lessons in the past month; lessons that will help me move forward in my life.

I'd like to be more creative and I will be.  I think of all the projects I'd love love love to start, but don't seem to have the time to do, so I don't start.  I see all the beautiful projects that people do and display on their blogs and I think I wish I had the time to do that.  Then I think maybe starting a small project would be the way to go and would give me the incentive to go on and do something else.  Then I think does it matter.  This is where that old friend 'self-talk' comes in, particularly GOOD SELF-TALK.

I'm not EVERYONE else.  This is not a competition.  I don't have to do the same thing or be as good as anyone else.  I just have to be me and do my own thing.  So I'm starting out this last month of the year ..... being ME, and learning to like and love who I am and find the best in myself .... becoming the best person that I can be.

I don't normally put photos of myself on my blog .... but this is me (I'm the one on the left) with my twin sister.  Does this mean I'm reaching a point in my life where I actually like who I am and  am comfortable with who I am?  Well that's a good start to the last month of 2012.

Good for you! Being comfortable with who you are and who you are growing to be is so important.
