What’s next? I’ve spent a lot of my life looking at what’s next. It’s so easy for me to get wrapped up in the next because I anticipate and plan to the high heavens. Sometimes, I miss the present. It flies right by my eyes and I don’t see it. I don’t get the chance to experience it.
But, what’s really next, except for looking forward to a great evening celebrating another quick trip around the sun with some friends, is that I’m going to just rest my head a little bit.
I don’t need to think so much. It robs me of all of the fun.
I don’t need to plan so much. I have all those lists that basically plan for me.
I don’t need to worry so much. Because I know that everything just works out for me.
Here, written out for all to see in my reverb posts are the answers that I’m looking for. The key to who I really am at heart and all that I want from my life.
Thanks for taking this month long journey with me and still liking me at the end of all that honesty. Or liking me more, perhaps.
I knew that I could write. Always could from the first time we had to do book reports in grade school. And I’ve known for some time that I’m far better at writing than I am at talking. Silly introverts! But committing to writing every day about things that made me think and be creative and express myself has really helped me… unload. I feel better. I feel more whole. And even though I know myself really well, I feel like I’ve gotten to know myself even better.
Thank you, Sarah, for inviting me to join and encouraging me to write. You’re an incredible friend and I hope to always join you for reverb each year and any other writing challenge you throw at me.
I never officially make new years resolutions, but I resolve to write more. No, no… write more is goal averse. I resolve to write at least once per week. That’s a minimum of 52 times in 2014 and you can hold me to it. So check back here to keep up with me. Love to you and your families in the New Year, I hope it is the most special one yet.
