The innovative (and very lovely) queen of social media, Gwen Bell, has put together a community project for December which I think you’re gonna love. According to the website, Reverb10 is “an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what’s happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10, we’ll do both.“
Sounds good, no? There’ll be daily prompts we can respond to with “a post on your blog, through a tweet, with photography, or however else you desire.” As this month is going to be a continuation of the last month for me–writing, writing and more writing–I’m going to use Reverb10 as a low-pressure way to reflect over the last year and think about what I want to achieve in the new year. I may not respond to every prompt (gotta save some writing juice for the big stuff) but it will be fun to see what everyone else blogs!
Would you like to join me? Head over to the site and add your name – nearly 1,000 people have already signed up!
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: For me 2010 has been all about OPENING. Opening my heart to let a little boy in, opening my arms to embrace new friends and opportunities, and opening my mind to what I am truly capable of creating. It’s been painful at times, but I guess all growth hurts a bit at the beginning. It’s been a year of opening and growing pains and walking more confidently in the world.
2011: I’ve already chosen my word for 2011, and I’m looking forward to writing about that on the last day of the year, so I’m choosing a different–but still connected– word today. LOVE. I truly hope, with all my healed heart, that there is (even) more love in my world in 2011.
There. I said it out loud :)
What word encapsulates your 2010?
