December 23 – New Name. Let’s meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why? (Author: Becca Wilcott)Hello, I'm Cheri. I'm rather fond of my own name and have never been one to want another name. I couldn't even imagine what it might be if I were forced to choose.
I have already blogged about this, and used it in answer to another Reverb10 Prompt. You can read about it here.
December 28 – Achieve. What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today. (Author: Tara Sophia Mohr)There are many things I want to achieve in the next year, but I think top on my list, the thing I want the most is to be physically fit and healthy. But that isn't something that I "get" and then am done with - it is a lifestyle, a habit, a way of being that I will be enjoying for the rest of my life. And I intend to enjoy the journey completely - the getting there - and the being there - and the staying there! So starting immediately since I've already begun this journey... I am feeling lighter, freer, more flexible, more energetic, happier, more satisfied...
December 29 – Defining Moment. Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year. (Author: Kathryn Fitzmaurice)I really believe that "defining moments" are few and far between in a lifetime. And I can't say that I've experienced anything as momentous as a "defining" moment in the past year. Certainly not like some of the "defining" moments I can recall so vividly from my past. I've done a lot of reading this year that has changed my perspective on me, who I am, who I want to be. I've had a lot of trial and error experience in the health and fitness arena. And I've participated in a number of online classes and challenges that truly stretched my boundaries and helped me grow. I think all these things in combination created the change in my life this past year.
