For the month of December I will be participating in Reverb10 which is 'an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what's next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what's happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10, we'll do both'.
So here goes . . .
The first prompt: December 1 One Word - Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?
My word for 2010 has to be moving. I talked about it, thought about it, worried about and finally did it. Moving house, moving countries, moving, moving, moving. To those readers who stuck with me in all my many complaints about the process and to my long suffering friends and family, thank you!
Moving encapsulates more than just the physical up-sticking we have gone through though. My work has started moving in directions I am happier with and excited about and even my online presence has been moving away from the shops here there and everywhere to what is, hopefully, becoming a more coherent, centralised space.
As for 2011 I'm going with progress. I can be a
faffer cautious decision maker for all sorts of reasons whether lacking confidence, being a little overwhelmed by choices needing to be made or passing butterflies distracting my attention. Now that the big "brave" things like leaving my job and moving are out of the way I would really like 2011 to be a year of progress.
