Inventory

#Reverb12, Day 17:
How will you continue to make a difference in 2013?
 

253538653992343085_PYBUvK6B_cI will continue being myself in 2013 but a little older, a little more weary yet more open. I will continue working towards forgiveness and healing while still being a pinch jaded.  I will be more hopeful and bright-eyed, more charitable and kind.

I will move forward.  Yes, forward — wherever that might be.  2013 is dawning and I don’t know where I will be in its afternoon. I will stride towards Understanding. Of what?  I don’t really know yet, but I know the answer is out there.

I neatly circumvented the first part of this prompt which was how I made a difference to someone else. I suppose it is possible I did, but it is not the reason why I do this, my life. All I want to do is to end each year a little better than how I started it.

And so I take inventory of myself at the end of 2012, I see where I am and how I need to grow. I take down those notes and measurements, and tuck it all away. I will dust them off around this time next year and hopefully, if I am fortunate and honest, I will see some improvement.

I will make a difference in 2013 by striving for positive change in me.

  1. You make a difference to me. You make me smile and laugh. You drop little notes to me just to say you like me (a feeling that is entirely mutual, I assure you!). You encourage me to keep doing this thing called life with as much dignity and humor as we can muster… just by doing it yourself. And you proudly go through life being the wonderful woman you were designed and intended to be, something that spurs me on to do the same.

    You’re precious, you’re loved, and always remember you are exactly who you’re supposed to be. A badass unicorn. 😉

    1. You are biggest cheerleader and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Big hugs and kisses!

    Yes! I love the determination in this post. And I also LOVE the cartoon.

    Well done! The cartoon is indeed badass and the idea of moving forward – as a badass unicorn – sounds marvelous.

    1. Oh doesn’t it, Lesley? I love the idea of being a badass unicorn.
