Throughout the month of December, I’ll be participating in #reverb13: Reverb is a way to reflect on the past year and project into the next year with a prompt a day for 31 days. December is the perfect time to reflect on 2013 and start to create intentions for 2014.
Day 21: Strange Encounters
Encounters | What thing did you keep encountering this year over and over again? Was it something you learned from or just a strange coincidence?
This prompt wasn’t an easy one for me to answer. Nothing jumps out at me as coming up over and over again throughout the year. I mean, I could of course talk about weight loss or fitness, but I’ve already done that so much in the other prompts, that it seems a bit repetitive.
I guess I’ll say this… As I’ve lost weight and posted progress photos on Facebook, this blog, etc, or when people have seen me in real life, they keep saying the same thing. That I’m glowing, that I look so happy. And while I think I’ve always been a positive, happy person, even at my highest weight, my true happiness might have been overshadowed by my frustration with my weight. Now that I’ve shed so much of that frustration along with all the weight, I do feel that my outward appearance finally fits with the person I’ve always known I am on the inside.
So I guess I keep encountering a happier me, and it definitely is no coincidence.
