Of course I am always behind with things like this. Well, not always, not with NaBloPoMo last month, but here. I am going to try to do Kat McNally’s #Reverb challenge this year. I’ve tried to do this challenge before but I’ve never finished, because guys, it’s INTENSE. It’s the kind of journaling prompt challenge that cuts deep and really makes you dig out the good stuff and get all the feels, and usually I stop halfway through the month because things get a little too personal and I end up revealing things about myself that I don’t want to and BLAM. Quit.
So, trying again. Reverb asked, on the first day,
what can you say right now with certainty?
- I can say that I love my kid more than anything else in the world and that everything I do I do with her in mind, and I think that’s the best measure of good parenting there can be.
- I can say that I’ve been doing a pretty okay job lately taking care of us, and taking care of myself and my own needs
- I can say that I’m not quite satisfied with where we are or where I’m going and I need to figure out how to change that
- I can say that all things considered, I don’t have much to complain about, and that’s a good thing.
I think this proves that there isn’t much in life I am certain of right now. And although, like I said, I don’t have much I can complain about, I don’t have much to boast about either, other than things to convince myself and other’s that I am doing reasonably okay.
I keep reminding myself that this time last year I told myself that 2014 would be the year that I publish my first book, and I wrote hardly a thing this year.
Maybe #Reverb will do me some good, making me reflect on the past and look more closely forward to the future. We shall see.
