#Reverb14 – Day 21: Ending with Certainty

Day 21: ending with certainty

Today, I’d like you to revisit what you wrote on 1 December on the first day of Reverb14.

How does that compare to where you are now i.e. what can you say today with certainty?
Then, without thinking too hard about it, grab a pen and some paper and finish the following sentences:

In 2015, I am open to… 

In 2015, I want to feel…

In 2015, I will say no to…

In 2015, I will know I am on the right track when… But when I find myself veering off course, I will gently but firmly…

In December 2015, I want to look back and say…

Looking back at day one and looking at today – I can say with certainty that the things I wrote then hold true today. That is a good thing! :)

In 2015, I am open to anything that comes my way that opens the channels of creativity – that expands my presence and my world in ways that helps others and nourishes my mind, body and soul.

In 2015, I want to feel creatively fulfilled. I want to not just scratch the surface of my potential but peel it back and bring it out into the wide open.

In 2015, I will say no to things that I know will not be in the best interest of my health or family. I will do so without guilt over feeling I must please everyone all the time.

In 2015, I will know I am on the right track when I am consistently doing the things I know I should be doing. But when I find myself veering off course, I will gently but firmly pick myself back up and start fresh without beating myself up and feeling like a failure.

In December 2015, I want to look back and say, “What a frakking awesome fun-filled, creatively juiced, happy, adventurous year this has been!”

***I want to thank the phenomenal Kat McNally for all the time and effort she puts into Reverb. I’m sad to see it come to a close this year. It has been a joy to look forward to each day’s prompt. I really needed this to kickstart my writing again.

I am ever so grateful for our blogging community. I have met some of the most wonderful, kind, dear, dear friends through Reverb over the years so I hold a special place in my heart for this annual event. Thank you, Kat. :) And thank you to those who contributed to this year’s prompts.

#Reverb14 – Day 20: Space for Joy

Day 20: space for joy

One thing I learned in 2014 was how to make space for joy and levity, even in the midst of challenging circumstances or sad times. 

How could you make space for joy in the year to come? How could you protect it?

DSCN6579

For me it is a matter of allowing for joy – by not trying to force it – by not trying to plan for it but rather by accepting it in any form – no matter how big or small it might be.

Joy can come when least expected. It can come from the tiniest of things – the smell of lilacs hitching a ride on the breeze or the scent of cedars as I walk down the driveway at the farm. It is the first snow  – as those delicate works of icy wonder fall from the sky and kiss my face.

It comes each and every time my child hugs me and says “I love you, Mommy.” It came when I watched her perform in her first Winter Concert with her first grade class this month. I thought I would burst with joy and pride at seeing my precious daughter up there on the stage.

Joy is in the simplicity of life and it is the acknowledgment of it. Even in the darkest moments, joy is there – waiting in the wings.

We need only take the time to notice it.

#Reverb14 – Day 19: Signs and Symbols

Day 19: signs and symbols

Today, I invite you to consider: what sorts of signs and symbols have recurred for you in 2014? Think: repeating colours, shapes, people, sayings, music, images, ideas. Where could they possibly be leading you?

This year, my color has been orange. I’ve always liked the color but this year, it seems to be the predominant shade I have been gravitating to. I’m not certain what it means, really. I just find it very warm, inviting and comforting. It’s a happy color to me.

I’ve also experienced several episodes of déjà vu this year. It’s actually been a while since I had any déjà vu. It can be years between episodes. For me, it is a signal that I am where I am supposed to be or on the right path. Years ago when I first started dating my husband, I had A LOT of déjà vu. I never had it so much as I did in the early days of our relationship. It has never been a negative thing for me. It has always been an indicator that I’m going the right way.  I find that comforting.

I’m sure there are other symbols that have popped up this year for me but right now I am drawing a blank. It’s not unusual for me to have a lot of “coincidental” sort of things happen to me throughout the year. I take them in stride and apply it where need be.

I do think this year has been a very peaceful sort of year for us which has been a long time coming. I see the color orange and the déjà vu as being part of that. I pray it flows with us into the new year.

#Reverb14 – Day 18: Nourishment

Day 18: nourishment

In the busyness of the everyday, taking time to nourish the soul doesn’t reach the top of the ‘to do’ list as often as it should. 

What nourishes your soul? How would you like to incorporate more of this into your life in 2015?

Nature Lover

Hugger of Trees

Yes, I know. I used this picture in an earlier post. But since this prompt is about nourishing the soul, I thought I would show you one of the things that nourishes my soul – hugging trees.

Hugging a tree, I can feel its warmth – its life. I am transported to a haven of tranquility as I close my eyes and rest against a tree. The energy coming off it is indescribable. Hugging trees is something I highly recommend to everyone.

Anytime I spend out in the woods rejuvenates my spirit for a good two weeks or so. It settles me and helps me see things more clearly.

Other ways I nourish my soul:

Music – either listening to music or playing the piano and singing.

Photography – being outside – taking pictures – time vanishes and I am in heaven.

Reading books that enlighten me helps feed my soul as well as my mind.

Anything creative nourishes my soul. Whenever I spend time drawing, crocheting, sewing – making something for someone else – I am nourishing my soul.

Allowing myself to be still from time to time is nourishing – embracing the quiet and allowing our minds to just be in the moment without distraction.

I hope to do more of these things in 2015 and remember to slow down and just be in the moment rather than rush about.

#Reverb14 – Day 16: Wonder

Day 16: wonder

In 2015, is there something you’d like to try harder at because you believe it would make all the difference? 

Conversely, what is something you could stop trying so hard at that might actually help you manifest what you’d like?

In 2015, I would like to really zero in more on the business my friend Gwen and I have – Impsy Creative. We are a website design/graphic design/copywriting business. Business has been slow but I feel that if we keep our focus on the three things I listed, we’ll be able to do more.

I need to try harder at being consistent. Sound familiar? That word pops up a lot with me. I did a lot better this last year at being consistent. I need to do even better with that this next year.  I feel that by maintaining consistency, a whole bunch of other things will fall into place for me.

Something I could stop trying so hard at is trying to do it all. This is where my mantra, “one thing at a time” comes in pretty darn handy. Here’s to keeping that mantra going strong throughout the next year.

#Reverb14 – Day 15: Do It Anyway

Day 15: do it anyway

What are you really proud that you made happen in 2014, despite the gremlins? And what will you do anyway in 2015?

This is something that is difficult for me to write about because I’m not one of those who likes to brag about the things I do. I don’t do it for applause. I do it because I enjoy helping others. That is one of the things in this life that gives me great joy.

There are several things I’m proud of. Proud because I was able to help in some small way and make a difference. Could someone else have done it? Of course! It’s not something anyone else could not have done by any means.

One of the things I did was arrange for our local Girl Scout Troop to meet with our congressman so they could earn their Government Badge. A friend of mine is the Girl Scout leader and I know our congressman so I just helped facilitate the event for them. That made me feel good – especially when I heard how much fun the girls had and how much they learned from meeting the congressman.

I am also on a committee at my daughter’s school that has an annual basket raffle fundraiser – Family Fun Night Event – to raise money for our school. The baskets are amazing. They are huge and elaborate and the families at our school are fantastic in helping with donations and volunteerism. The event is family friendly where we have games, music, refreshments and of course, the raffle. This year we arranged for ten percent of our proceeds to go towards care packages for local military personnel who are serving overseas. We raised nearly $7000 from the basket raffle. We had a superheroes board with the names of people in our community who serve in the military, police or firefighters. This is such a great event and it makes me extremely proud to serve on this committee that tries to give back. I’m grateful they asked me to be a part of it.

Tomorrow, I’m going to do something I have always wanted to do – especially with my daughter. Another friend of mine, my daughter and I are going to ring the bell for the Salvation Army at one of the department stores tomorrow night. I’ve always appreciated what they try to do for the community. And I’m excited to be a teeny tiny part of that.

A year ago, I would not have been able to do this. I would not have wanted to leave the house. I would have had a panic attack. It feels so good to be out of that dismal fog. It feels incredibly good to be out and about doing a little bit to help others and give back.

I plan to continue this throughout 2015 and beyond.

#Reverb14 – Day 14: Roots and Anchors

Day 14: roots and anchors

The idea of rooting down into your own personal beliefs and center of truth is an ongoing process, and many things can serve as anchors or roots as you move through life.

What rooted or anchored you in 2014?

And where do you want to put down roots in 2015?

As always – my family. That’s always first and foremost. It sounds cliche but it is true.

And then I have to add nature. Being outside amongst the trees – hugging trees and feeling their energy – breathing in the scent of the cedars – that grounds me immensely and rejuvenates my spirit.

One thing that truly anchored me this year – because I lean towards a scattered mind brimming with too many thoughts that all decide to fight for dominance at one time – is my mantra: “one thing at a time”.  I tell myself this when life gets hectic and too many things start popping up at one time. I tell myself, “one thing at a time” and center myself so that my focus clears up and it works. It has been helping a lot.

In 2015, I want to be more centered. I want to create more and truly anchor myself to finishing something. I flit about too much with my productivity. I want to sit down and finish my book. I just have to figure out which one I want to finish first as I have several on the burner. See what I’m talking about? My inability to finish has been plagued by self-doubt and second-guesses. I need to get over that and just push forward and not expect perfection right out of the gate. So my roots need to “still” me. That is what I am aiming for.

#Reverb14 – Day 13: My Brave Year

Day 13: my brave year

Step one: set the timer for 5 minutes and write down as many answers as you can think of to the question: ‘When and how was I brave in 2014?’ Note: remember the private, intimate and small ways in which you were brave as well as the big public ways.

Step two: Choose one of more of those moments of bravery and write a letter yourself back at the beginning of 2014, letting you know how brave you are going to be that year.

Step three: Write yourself a short reminder to tuck into your wallet or post above your desk of just how brave you can and will be in 2015.

All clear.

 

My “act” of bravery: (I apologize for the lengthy explanation)

A few years ago, I reconnected with my father after several years of non-communication. There is a reason for my having nothing to do with him as he is the equivalent of a psychopath. I exaggerate not. And yet, being the good Christian daughter I try to be, I decided to give him another (of way too MANY) chance(s).

He seemed different this time. More like his old self – the father of my very early years. Mind you, I kept both eyes open where he was concerned. I was never under any allusion that his “change” was remotely permanent – although I hoped.  This was his final chance. And he did okay – for a very short while. As usual, it did not last. I felt the change in the wind literally just a couple weeks before it happened.  I just knew and I told my husband about it.  Of course, just like I thought – it happened. His old-evil-bombastic-nasty-self reared its ugly head and it was all downhill from there. My husband finally got to see first-hand what I was talking about.

I can’t possibly get into all the details as to why my father is a monster or how he is or what he did-  we’d have a book. He is one of the most intelligent people around. He is the guy you want in your group in a survival situation. He can survive with NOTHING. He can build anything out of nothing. Think tanks wanted him. But no matter how intelligent he is, it can never make up for the bastard of a human being he is. If the devil walked the earth in human form – he would be my father.

Okay, so now you have a bit of a picture of him. Well -combine that with several other toxic people in my life and I basically shut down when the proverbial shit hit the fan. When he finally left to move to Montana with his soon-t0-be fourth wife – same woman he had an affair with behind my mother’s back years and years ago – I had my husband cover the two long narrow windows on either side of our front door. I didn’t want anyone seeing in and I didn’t want to look out. I was constantly afraid my father would show up at my door. I wanted him nowhere near our daughter or us. I looked over my shoulder whenever we were out to be certain he truly was gone.

So here is where my act of bravery comes in. Finally – at the end of February of this year – after four years of having this film on the window – after losing that toxic black sludge I posted about earlier – I decided to remove the film from the windows. And I did. I ripped it right off and it felt good. It felt freeing. I no longer needed it. Another weight had been lifted from me.

My letter to me regarding this:

Dear Me,

You moved on. You don’t need him in your life. He is nothing to you. And you are better for it. No more hiding. No more looking over your shoulder. You win. He loses. Never forget that.

Lovingly,
Me

My reminder: No looking back – only forward.

#Reverb14 – Day 12: A Love Note

Day 12: a love note

It all starts with kindness. Everything I have learnt, everyone I have interviewed, every word I have studied has guided me to this simple but profound conclusion: true happiness begins and ends with self-kindness.

No more guilt. No more shoulds. No more comparison.

And the very best way to give your weary soul some kindness at the end of this year? A love note.

Write a letter from you to you… filled with forgiveness, love, and a big bear hug.

Dear Me,

I wish I could go back and change things for you. Not everything, just the shitty, unpleasant stuff that made you doubt yourself all these years.  I wish I could give you insight to what you know now that you did not know then. I wish you had had the confidence and the realization that you are enough — that it’s okay to like yourself just the way you are and you don’t have to try to be anything or anyone other than you for anyone else.

I wish I could have muted your father when he cut you down and said all those awful things he said to you years ago that made you think you were less than. That was and is on him. Not you. He is the one with the problem. You are more than that. You are beautiful. You are intelligent. You are fantastic just the way you are. The hell with him. You are so much better off without him in your life.

You have come so far these last few years – especially this year. You are alive again. You are reaching beyond yourself and not closing others off. You are allowing yourself to breathe and to understand and know your own mind! Those dreadful echoes of your father are gone. And although he still tries to claw at you from afar, he no longer holds any power or sway over you.

You have just come to the realization lately that you like yourself just the way you are. That was a HUGE thing for you. You asked yourself one day, “What if I liked myself just as I am?” It was a profound thought for you!  You needed to get to that point – finally after all these years!  I’m proud of you. Keep it up. Keep striving and pushing. Acknowledge your strengths. Live and be you as only you can be.

Much love and hugs,
Me

#Reverb14 – Day 11: Ritual and Routine

 Day 11: ritual and routine

What tiny rituals: signal that your day is starting; help you ease into a creative project; give you closure from an intensive task; or mark other significant milestones in your day? What new rituals would you like to create in the new year?

I’m definitely on more of a schedule this year now that my daughter goes to school all day. I’m up by six -sometimes earlier. I like to be up a wee bit earlier than the rest of my family so as to have a tiny morsel of time to myself to clear my head and prepare for the day. I find it calming and then I feel less harried later on.

It’s the usual sort of activity in the morning once everyone is up. Heat water, grind coffee beans, prep the French Press and wait a few minutes. Prepare breakfast, empty dishwasher, hurry my daughter along as she tends to dawdle in the morning. Get her ready to head out the door, walk her to the bus and then walk home. Grab a second cup of coffee or reheat the current one, head downstairs to the computer and then it’s time to play some World of Warcraft for a couple hours with my friend Gwen. We Skype as we play and chat about a variety of things – our business, life, the game, etc… . She heads off to work, I queue up whatever project I’m working on and get to work. Sometimes I throw in a load of laundry or pick up the house. Over the course of the day, I workout with my kettlebells and/or walk/run on the treadmill. Lately, I have been crocheting as I watch television. I’m working on several Christmas presents.

I would not say I have a set ritual. Perhaps that is the problem. Maybe I need to set more of one to get me more focused. I was thinking about this the other day. I would like to have more of one. Perhaps it would make me seem more “official” in my own eyes. I find I have a difficult time taking myself seriously when it comes to my writing/work. How can something I do enjoy be considered work? I’m not sure if it comes from years of my father constantly hammering on about how you don’t have fun when working. Work was not something to be enjoyed. I don’t believe that but I wonder if subconsciously, that is there in the back of my mind – getting in my way.

In the new year, I would like to establish more of a routine/ritual. I think if I incorporate it slowly and do it consistently, it will stick. :) I love reading about the rituals/routines of other writers. Sometimes I find myself hoping perhaps their ideas will rub off on me and correct whatever it is I’m doing wrong.

#Reverb14 – Day 10: Generosity

Day 10: generosity

Look back at the last year and consider: how did generosity open your heart? How can you cultivate generosity in the coming year?

Growing up, I was always the kid pouring all the change from my piggy bank into my grandmother’s suitcase before she left for home after spending a week or two with us. I felt by doing so I was making sure she would be okay. I didn’t realize in my little child mind there was barely enough there for her to buy anything. But my heart was in the right place.

I love to help people. If I can make the next person’s job or day a little easier, I will do that. I don’t know how not to. I get great joy in seeing joy in someone’s face or knowing I made their day a little better.

This is something I’m teaching my daughter and she seems to carry this desire with her already. She loves to help others. Her teacher says whenever my daughter hears someone asking for help, she is the first one over to give them a hand. She too likes to share and is always making sure the kids or adults around her are taken care of. She comforts others when they are hurting and tends to them like a mother hen.

This is one of the ways I am cultivating generosity, not only in the coming year, but for life.

#Reverb14 – Day 9: Shades of Grey

Day 9: shades of grey

As you enter into the new year, what would you like to do/make/have/be more often? How will you bear witness and celebrate the tiny milestones? How will you respond on the occasions when your intentions do not come to pass?

I’m taking life as it comes. I’m embracing it for what it is and what it can be.

That said, in 2015 I want: (in no particular order)

-to have more fun.
-to be more present.
-to be more patient with myself.
-to spend more time outside.
-to be more consistent.
-to savour each and every moment.
-to allow myself to just. be. me. flaws and all.
-to laugh even more.
-to continue discovering and learning new things.
-to hug more trees.
-to focus on finishing writing at least ONE of my books.
-to live more fully.
-to open my heart and my mind even more.
-to have as much fun with my family as possible.

Celebrate each day and start each day anew even if we didn’t fulfill our intended goals. Always remember what Anne of Green Gables said, “Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it…”

#Reverb14 – Day 8: Connections

Day 8: connections

The hectic pace of our lives can make it difficult to remain connected to the things and the people that matter the most to us. We get wrapped up in our work or our busyness and connection falls by the wayside.

How have you created and/or sustained connections in your life this year?

This has been the year of cultivating friendships in my immediate vicinity. The last several years, it was about mainly online connections which have been and continue to be incredibly important to me. But I was reticent to reach out within my local community until this year. This year I was finally able to step outside the safety net of my home and make new friends and spend time with old friends I’ve long neglected. It’s been a blessing. This entire year has been a blessing in more ways than I can count.

#Reverb14 – Day 7: Show Your Self(ie)

Day 7: show your self(ie)

This has been one of my favourite prompts for the past four years, so I cannot resist using it once again.
Please post your favourite picture of yourself from 2014, self-portrait or otherwise!

For bonus points: make montage of the selfies you have posted for the past four years or however long you have been participating in Reverb! #tbt (Throwback Thursday) photos also welcome.

I can’t find the 2011 picture. I’ve been participating in Reverb since 2010, so here is what I could pull up.

This year’s pic is special because it is the day after that weight was lifted off me when I was at my mom’s. Remember the last post where I wrote about the black blob coming out of my body and being absorbed into this white light in the ceiling? Well this pic was the very next day. I was at the farm, hugging the cedar trees at the end of the drive and feeling more alive than I can remember. That’s why this pic is special to me.

This is me.

#Reverb14 – Day 6: Biting Back

Day 6: Biting Back

Despite our usually sunny dispositions and dedication to the practice of “assuming positive intent,” we all occasionally find ourselves having to deal with an incredibly unpleasant individual.

While I’m sure you always handle it with the tact and finesse for which you’ve become so well known, I’m going to ask you to step outside yourself for just a moment.

Think back to such a situation: if the gloves were off, how you really would have liked to have dealt with them?

Oh boy. There have been more than a few unpleasant individuals I’ve had to deal with lately. This is especially true in the political realm I am part of. These people are the kind where you need to have someone check your back to be sure there is not a knife or ax embedded.

It’s that bad.

I would never do this but I would LOVE to knock their heads together and ask them what the hell their problem is. I would also like to kick them out of the organization and be sure they could never be involved again. These people – no matter your political affiliation – are the worst of the worst and are the type who are only in it for themselves and not because they want to effect positive change.

They do nothing to make things better. These are the sort of people I detest with every single fiber of my being.

My other vent is people who close their minds off to a person simply because of their affiliation without bothering to talk to the person and hear what they have to say. I’m sick of judgement. I’m sick of people whining – complaining about every little thing. Seriously. There are more important things in life than to be so darn critical of everything. I’m sick of the negative Facebook posts. I’m sick of hearing how horrible this world is and how bad people are. My goodness, start focusing on the good. I’m sick of stupidity and ignorance. I’m sick of labels. I’m sick of people thinking they know what really happened in a situation because the media reported something about it.

There. I said it. I vented. Now let’s move on.

Think on happy things. Be happy. Let’s focus on all that is good. Let’s work together to make things better rather than tear each other down. Happy Saturday.

#Reverb14 – Day 4: Conduits

Day 4: conduits

We are all lightning rods, conduits for that which the Universe wants born into this world. What energies did you channel this year?

 

Energy1

I love this quote by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. I read her book,  My Stroke of Insight several years back and it has stayed with me. It is about her personal journey through a massive stroke. The book is definitely high on my list of recommendations because there is so much meat to it that we can all benefit from.

Anyway, the quote – “Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into this space.” is one we should all practice.  We each carry with us energy that we give off. It can be positive energy or it can be negative energy and it DOES affect those we come in contact with and vice versa. It can drain us or buoy us. I prefer to buoy others and be buoyed.

A few years ago, I realized I needed to cut ties with the toxic people in my life. Their negative energy was sucking the life out of me. So I severed those ties and as difficult as that was – it was the best thing I could have done for myself.

This year I have been more proactive in protecting myself and others from negative energy. Back in February, I experienced something profound when we were up north for the weekend. One night as we were all sleeping, this white light appeared above me and I could see this inky black blob being lifted out of my body and absorbed into the white light. I woke up the next morning feeling like a ton of weight had been lifted off me. I could breathe! I felt like a new person – like my old self – and it was the most fascinating, fantastic experience I have ever had. That was a HUGE turning point for me. My panic attacks and anxiety were gone and I no longer felt like isolating myself from others.

The book, Energetic Boundaries by Cyndi Dale is a pretty good resource regarding the energy we carry with us. I don’t agree with everything espoused in the book but for the most part, it is very interesting. It helped me to see the path of negative and positive energy and how it affects us.

There’s so much more I could write about regarding this topic. Perhaps another time. But if you want to know specifically what energy or energies I channeled this year – watch the movie, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”.  Hands down, my favorite movie this year. The scene where Ben Stiller’s character is skateboarding down the highway in Iceland and the song “Far Away” by Junip is playing is the most perfect example of “showing” you how I feel and what sort of energy I am channeling right now.

Life is good. :)
