I told Hun that I think I’ve lost my mind. Why?, he asks. Well, because I found two other things that sound fun out here in the blog world and I think I’m going to do them. No additional information given. I mean, I did get a little catching up done after finishing out November NaBloPoMo . But, challenges I like. I’m feeling a little re-invigorated right now, this evening. I do think I’ll only do one challenge right now though. Sometimes it’s hard enough getting one post done a day, let alone two.

By the way, it wasn’t much after this conversation I answered Hun’s question, “Why won’t you let him (Baby) play with this?” by saying that he’d make a mess! Yep, my sanity is gone if the one thing Baby has been pining over for weeks (DVDs in a basket) seems to be the end of cleanliness, when I’m constantly picking up other things he’s spread about the room and under the ottoman.

I digress. Here is my (late) post for Day 1 of Reverb 2013 with Elephant Journal.

1 word for 2013: Change.

Many changes came about for me in 2013. I entered the year pregnant, which was a change. Baby was born back in April, another change. I was instantly an active mother, more change. A few weeks later, I quit my job to be a full-time stay-at-home mother, more change. Oh and I suddenly (in another moment of insanity) decided I could become a blogger, so I started my blogventure. Yes, that was a change. It was even a change just to begin commenting on others’ blogs, then to go and start my own. All of these changes have taken a toll on me. I’ve had a difficult time reorganizing myself amongst all these changes. I started to come out on the other side a bit a few weeks back, but I’m still in the process of reorganizing myself. If I was asked how I feel about it all, I still can’t definitively say. I’m still growing.

1 word for 2014: Calm.

I wish for myself more calm. I wish for more moments of clarity and less of frustration and confusion and doubt. I hope to keep my gratitude in the forefront. That act alone will bring me more peace, hence calm.

calm quote

By the way, the purpose of Reverb 2013 is to take a self-reflecting look at “the year that has passed and set intentions for the coming year”. Come along on the ride, join me in taking a look at myself through 2013 as I prepare to head into 2014.

    I like the idea of looking at where we have been and preparing for the days ahead. I also love that you are aiming for calm – that, to me, always seems wise after times of change. I look forward to seeing how you tackle the challenges you are choosing 🙂

      I *know* I can’t be calm when there are many changes. I mean, I’ve done better in the last few years, though there’s still some work for me to do (isn’t there always).
