So it seems I have not touched Reverb10 in 10 days…which means you get an awesome 10-for-1 blog 🙂
December 18 – Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? (Author: Kaileen Elise)
The one thing that I wanted to try in 2010 was to finally self-publish my book…Everything else got in the way but I know that 2011 will be the year! (Hopefully).
December 19 – Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? (Author: Leonie Allan)
There was a lot of healing done in 2010 and it was definitely drip-by-drip. I would like to think that I’ve healed and grown enough that unless something hits me in an awful way in 2011, I won’t have that much healing to do.
December 20 – Beyond Avoidance. What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?) (Author: Jake Nickell)
Things I should’ve done this year were get a job I love, travel to the west coast & write more. I’ve found my footing and 2011 will be the year that I will do all of this & more!
(I will do the Future Self prompt by Jenny Blake in its own blog)
December 22 – Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year? (Author: Tara Hunt)
I finally traveled to another time zone (Texas), went to visit my bff in NC a couple of times and finally went up to NYC (and fell in love with it!) Next year, I will finally be traveling to the west coast! I’ll be going to Seattle in January & California (hopefully in the spring). Of course, there will be maaaaaaaany more trips to NYC & everywhere in between!
December 23 – New Name. Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why? (Author: Becca Wilcott)
Considering I went by ‘Jordan’ online for so long, I love my real name and wouldn’t change it for the world 🙂
December 24 Prompt – Everything’s OK. What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead? (Author: Kate Inglis)
I don’t know if there was *one moment*. The second half of my year has been filled with moments where everything clicked, and my heart felt at ease.
December 25 – Photo – a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you. (Author: Tracey Clark)

My future, revealed.
December 26 – Soul Food. What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul? (Author: Elise Marie Collins)
Beef ribs in Austin, TX. It was an experience shared with two of my best friends, during a weekend full of bonding. Since I don’t eat pork, I’d never tried ribs before and these beef ribs were quite possibly the most amazing things I’ve ever had.
December 27 – Ordinary Joy. Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year? (Author: Brené Brown)
Spending time with my family; watching TV on the couch after a long day with the Boy; having a cup of coffee with a friend where we sit and chat for hours; walking around in the city. All of these may be ‘ordinary’ moments but they all bring me great joy. I happen to cherish the ‘little’ things and it’s when I’m the happiest.
Oy…Now that I’m all caught up on MY blog, I have YOUR Reverb10 posts to read for the past 10 days! I’ve missed you all…See you on the flip side 🙂
