As part of Reverb13, we get the following from Kat McNally today
Today’s post and image come from master wordsmith and craft beer connoisseur, Michael Douglas Jones. How Michael manages to make 140 characters come alive with all the glory and agony that it is to be human remains a mystery to me… you’ll just have to follow him on twitter to see what I mean.
Habits and addictions, some are silly, some serious; when we have issues without answers, they can hold us so tight that we stop moving forward with the life we intended.
Were you able to loosen those fetters this year, and if you were successful, how did you manage it? Did you accept outside help, or work alone?
If you still feel that grasp of addiction or hurtful habits, what will you do differently in the year to come?
I’ve done a little bit of work this year on feeling worthy – believing that it is OK for me to do well and be well and have a good life. Sometimes it feels like there are so many wonderful things in my life and I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop – for things to go bad, to fall apart.
I have begun to realize this year that in order to live a life of abundance, you cannot have an attitude of scarcity. You cannot keep holding back – waiting and afraid – if you’re going to get where it is you want to be.
And while I’m not there yet – I’m still struggling every day – it gets easier to believe that all of the goodness, all of the sweetness that is my life is something I deserve. I am not always waiting for something to go wrong.
Over at Project Reverb, today the prompt is
1000 Words: There’s the old saying that a photo is worth 1,000 words. Give us a photo with that impact that sums up some significant event of your 2013, or give us 1,000 words about a pivotal moment in 2013.
Not the best picture of us, but it seems like the right one. The two of us – together, on the beach, enjoying our time together.
