Throughout the month of December, I’ll be participating in #reverb12: celebrating the successes of 2012, honoring the challenges of 2012, and planting the seeds for a rich and rewarding 2013. December is the perfect time to reflect on the year that has passed and start to manifest dreams for the new year.
Day 1 – How Are You Starting?
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?
I feel excited at the start of December, the freshness of the month, the cusp of the holiday season that I love so much. I’m going to do my best to enjoy each and every day of this month.
My body is a bit of a mixed bag. I’m feeling great in terms of my weight loss, which has been going so well for the last couple of months. My foot, however, is really painful. Dealing with plantar fasciitis and now the torn fascia has been really challenging. I am not going to let this injury stop me from working out, or achieving my goal, so I’ll be doing a lot more swimming this month.
My job has been wonderful lately, even though this time of year (the end of the semester) brings a ton of grading to do, I’ve worked out a system that will let me get it all done, but still maintain the work-life balance that I’ve tried so hard to achieve.
Creatively things have never been more fulfilling. I have so many fun projects that I’m doing in December:
- decorating the house and my classroom for Christmas
- #reverb12 posts
- #idearoom 2012 December Photo-A-Day Challenge that I’m posting on FB & Twitter
- Christmas craft projects I’ve found on Pinterest
- taking up/learning how to crochet
My heart feels so full of peace and gladness as I begin this month. I cannot wait to see all the possibilities unfold as I embark on this journey.
