For the last couple of year's I've embarked on reverb - an annual reflection of the year of past and intention setting for the year ahead - and while the original inspirations behind the project are no longer spearheading this annual writing event, I'm jumping on board with other writers. You can too. 

I will be sharing some posts and if you'd like to share, too, here are the prompts I'm going with this year:


December 01 | One Word (the original first question)
Encapsulate the year 2012 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 2013 for you? (Author: Gwen Bell)

We often learn our limits the hard way. Were there any limits you realized this past year? Alternately, what self-imposed limits were you able to move beyond this year? (Author: Carolyn Rubenstein)
December 03 | Remember
What is one thing you did this year you think you'll remember for the rest of your life? (Author: ?)
December 04 | Fear
When were you most scared? Why? How did you respond? How do you wish you would have responded? (Author: Mary Churchill)
December 05 | Worthy
Who have you taken for granted? Write to them a handwritten letter expressing how you truly feel about them. Then mail it. (Author:?)
December 06 | Change
If you could change one thing that happened this year, what would it be? Why? (Author:?)
December 07 | 7 Minutes

What is the greatest compliment you could give? Are you worthy of the same praise? (Author: Me)
December 28 | Space
We all surround ourselves with the things we love. A few favourite things - a blanket, a lamp, a piece of art, a chair, a lovey - something inanimate that brings us happiness. What do you have in your personal space that brings about happiness? What is the story attached to it that has it in your sacred space? (Author: Me) 
December 29 | View
Imagine that you can view yourself from above. Watch carefully. What are you doing? What are you trying to accomplish? As objectively as possible, are you going in the right direction? (Author: Me)

December 31 | Moving Forward
Close your eyes and imagine yourself on January 1, 2014. Where do you want to be - in your heart, in your soul, in the world? (Author: Me)
And with that, my month of reflection will come to an end and hopefully enough energy and ideas have been manifested to bring me into a full and rewarding 2013. What about you?)
