Reverb13 Day Twenty-One: The End Of It
The previous two times I did the Reverb project, it continued through to the end of the month. And since there are usually multiple sources for the Reverb prompts, some of the other Reverbs are in fact continuing through to the end of the year. I thought about doing so along with them.
Unlike last year, however, I’ve stayed with the same source of prompts for the entire month. In deference to that, I believe I will bow out on the 21st as well, with thanks to Kat McNally for organizing and sending the prompts I followed, plus her comments on my various posts throughout the project.
So the final prompt is a look back, obviously:
2014 is going to be MY YEAR because… I’m going to insist upon it.
In 2014, I am going to do… do more, and wonder less.
In 2014, I am going to feel… Tired, frankly. And worried. Confused and more than a bit annoyed and frustrated. But such is the case with me when I try to do new stuff in a world that doesn’t give me much help.
In 2014, I am not going to… Over-analyze. Consider, ponder, and get on with things. If I screw it up, I guess I will deal with that.
In December 2014, I am going to look back and say… it was worth it. Let’s do it again.
I followed several sources for last year’s Reverb, so looking back on it isn’t exactly the same. But in general, I think I let a few things get ahead of me in 2013 that I didn’t intend to last year this time. I laid a solid foundation for thinking more creatively, more proactively, but I didn’t execute as often or as often as I would have thought I would had you asked me in December of 2012.
On the more positive side, however, I’ve created more art than I perhaps thought I would a year ago. The work that I’ve done in certain areas had been of better quality than I might have suspected back then. And I’m more willing to embrace intentional change, not just simply accepting that life itself is gradual change. I think I’m more willing to believe I can sometimes a control the change…to be deliberate in it. For the better.
Am I right? I guess one will have to tune in during December of 2014 to know for sure.
Thanks to any fellow Reverbers who may have read my posts this year. They were a challenge, as always.
I may write a few more blog posts here and there before New Year’s but if not, enjoy your holiday season, everyone.
