Day 21 of Reverb14 Ends With Certainty...

Today is 21st and final day of Reverb14, hosted by the lovely Kat McNally who blogs at I Saw You Dancing. It has been quite an adventure using these Reverb14 prompts to begin my own end-of-year reflection process and it's been a treat to visit the blogs of the many wonderful participants who are also amazingly great writers!

Here is what Kat has to share with us on this final day:

Today, I'd like you to revisit what you wrote on 1 December on the first day of Reverb14. 

How does that compare to where you are now i.e. what can you say today with certainty?

Then, without thinking too hard about it, grab a pen and some paper and finish the following sentences:


In 2015, I am open to...

In 2015, I want to feel...
In 2015, I will say no to...
In 2015, I will know I am on the right track when… But when I find myself veering off course, I will gently but firmly…
In December 2015, I want to look back and say...

In regard to the first question, I can continue to say with certainty:

I am a highly CREATIVE being and I will ALWAYS be so.

This, I know, will not change much in my life for the foreseeable future!

But as for the other questions, let's see what pops into my head as I look at them...

In 2015, I am open to MORE EASE
In 2015, I want to feel MORE JOY
In 2015, I will say "NO" to people that are NOT a right-fit for ME
IN 2015, I will know I am on the right track when I'm feeling good about my accomplishments...But when I find myself veering off course, I will gently but firmly refer to my accomplishment journal and add to it!

In December 2015, I want to look back and say:

What an amazing year of new friendships and creative income earning opportunities, with a great balance of fun, ease and relaxation combined with LOTS of reading and LOTS of hot buttered popcorn!

Many thanks to Kat McNally for hosting Reverb14 and sharing such wonderful and thought-provoking prompts with us all!

And many thanks to YOU for stopping by to read my reflections and thanks to those of you who left such wonderful and encouraging comments! I am really feeling that 2015 will be MUCH BETTER than 2014!

Kat has mentioned one last treat for us, so be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what she has in store!

Yes, I've enjoyed doing Reverb14, too though I came in late. It's a good exercise to reflect back in the last month of the year. Enjoying reading you and your creativity and energy.

I've loved following along as you've reflected on these prompts Monica. And I'm wishing you a 2015 that's indeed filled with much more ease and much much more joy! And I am truly grateful 2014 brought us into each other's orbit.

I love the idea of an accomplishment journal!!! I am going to have to copycat you on that (if it's ok)!

I just wanted to swing by and say thank you for all of the encouragement you gave me during Reverb and that I am following you on bloglovin' so that I don't lose track of you!

I hope that in the year to come, you will continue to be the awesome (and beastly!) creative person that I've come to know and adore and that the universe will swing in your favor in increasingly delightful ways! <3<3<3

Thank YOU Monica. The journey would not have been the same without your earnestness, your humour, your zesty spirit and, of course, your creativity! xx

I hope that's exactly what you'll be saying at this time next year!!!! May all your wishes come true and a beautiful 2015 Monica!!!
