Healing #reverb10

What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?

Whoa — this is a tough one, depending how I was to take it.

Healing and I have a strange love hate relationship. Some of the reasons why may well be obvious. The various churches that I have been into have also increased my scepticism and nervousness about this issue.

That’s if I take a traditional response. But, I’m not going to, am I?

Healing for me this year has been very much a drip dry healing, as it always is for me. Healing of my own anxieties, a settling of my moods, hearing of relationships (and I’m including with myself) and although it might not always be evident a renewed sense of “the piece that passes all understanding”.

I still have the health challenges, but even with regards those I’m still active and involved. And I’m calmer at some level that I would not have expected.

I found a level playing field with relationships. I know my limits better, and I’m better able to respect and noticed other people’s limits without having to run into them like a brick wall first. Not that I had bad relationships mind you, but things can always be improved.

The fun thing that I’ve healed this year is my love of reading and it seems of writing.According to  my book reading log I have read something like 25 books this year which in addition to the work-related reading I do isn’t bad.

#reverb10 Lesson Learned: my own company

I haven’t done this for a while, but I like this question and I want to think about it.

What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?

(Author: Tara Weaver)

I’ve learnt a lot about myself, or at least I think I have. My problem now is I can’t exactly remember any of them with enough clarity and motivation to report on it here much less live it next year.

I think I’m proudest of learning that I can keep my own company quite well. I always liked being both with others and myself. But I now use that time well. I do good things with it. I’ve built good things with that time. I’m not scared.

#reverb10 – Make

Growing up I always came late to the good fads. I was among the last to know about friendship bracelets, cabbage patch dolls etc etc.

In that vein, I’ve only just discovered #Reverb10 of blogging opportunity to review the year that was in a series of daily posts. I will try and catch up over the course of the month and do the five that I’ve missed out on. In the meantime however; today’s prompt is;

What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?
(Author: Gretchen Rubin)

This is a difficult one for me as in the classic sense I don’t really make much, not in the tangible messy but fun sense. I mean I make a mess (see my earlier post), I make friends, etc. In the tangible sense, the last thing I made was a risotto. In the more ethereal sense, the last thing I made was a commitment to another person. I’m proud of my ability to buy in large keep commitments and build my energy levels around usage around the commitments that are already there. It had been always worked, but I’d like to think it has been appreciated.

This year all other things being equal I’d like to make myself into a lawyer. I would really like to finish that even if I never really use it. So close and yet maybe so far. I also need to make some decisions about where and how to live because I’m restless here and I have other options.

In a more tangible sense I’d like to learn to make nice salads.
