Reverb '12: Day 31 ... Happy New Year, 2013!

Closing a month of Reverb '12 with Kat @ I Saw You Dancing... Day 31.

I end this project with mixed feelings knowing it is not an end at all ... I have loved creating an image a day for 31 days in response to Kat's prompts, but it takes time and inspiration that I am relieved to take a break from for a bit. I hope you have enjoyed my journey and that it has inspired you to consider your own.

Day 31: Where are you now?

Think back to where you were all those moons ago, on 1 December when you started #reverb12. All the way back then, I asked: "How are you starting?" Now quickly and without thinking too much about it, finish these five sentences:

2013 is going to be MY YEAR because
... I deserve it! I've weathered the storm. I've done the right things. I've learned new skills. It will be my year because I am and I want it to be.

In 2013, I am going to do ... good work ... both in my next job and in my creative work. I am going to honor the promises I make to myself just as I honor promises I make to others. I want to learn Illustrator.

In 2013, I am going to feel ... joyous, happy, and fulfilled.

In 2013, I am not going to ... constantly chip away at the good I offer by thinking I have to be different.

In December 2013, I am going to look back and say ...  I did it! I created a better life for me and for those I touch. I brought joy to others through my writing and photographic creations. I did a good job.
