December 31 Core story.
What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.)
Here’s the story as I see it.
I naively set myself back with a choice I made in 2002. 2010 was finally the culmination of the work required to make up for that choice as well as reaping other rewards that resulted from that work.
Up until now, life was more focused on what.
In 2010 I made a big leap in the way I view the world and what is important to me. Life going forward from here is going to be centered around living more consciously and deliberately per that world view.
From now on, life should be more focused on how.
I chiefly share it through this blog and through tweets. I share it with Missy all the time. I occasionally share it with friends in actual face-to-face conversations. I’d like to do more of that. I know a lot of cool people doing cool things; all are working through these same issues.
This #reverb10 writing exercise has really helped me crystallize these themes. I don’t know why this is surprising to me. I’ve had many of these thoughts swirling about in my head but haven’t been able to articulate them well. Especially not on command (i.e., when asked). I am really grateful for this particular bit of clarity as we transition into a new year.
For the month of December, I’m participating in a project called #reverb10. You can read the creation story yourself; the short version is that it’s a month-long exercise in reflecting on the year and manifesting what you want for next year. There’s a daily prompt to which you respond as you see fit. View all my #reverb10 posts.
