# Reverb10 - Catching Up

Day 8 | Beautifully different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different - you'll find they're what make you beautiful.  (Author - Karen Walrond.)

Seriously? What doesn't make me different? 

I'm a natural blonde - meaning I have blonde eyebrows and eyelashes.

I have a scar on my left knee from falling off my bike as a kid. I have scars on my belly from gallbladder surgery and a c-section. 

I freckle and burn very easily.

I'm very candid about what I think (some call it blunt - semantics).  

I'm NOT photogenic. BUT  I have a creative soul. 

Both my big toenails are still growing out from the Breast Cancer 3Day walk in October 2008. 

I hate dirty dishes in the sink.

I have zero tolerance for rudeness, incompetence, and waiting in lines. 

I love the ocean. And sunsets. And my family and friends. 

And it is a package deal. All or nothing. The good with the bad. It's all who I am. And isn't that beautiful?

Day 9 | Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)

I am the consummate stay-at-home-body. An introvert at heart.  I do not care for large gatherings such as the cocktail parties I am occasionally called upon to attend for work.  One night of being "on" for hours on end, chatting it up with people I barely know, can leave me physically and mentally exhausted for days after. So I can readily assure you that no socks have been rocked in 2010.  Now... put me in a room full of my tribe and I'll be telling a different story! I never said I don't like to have fun!

December 10 | Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? (Author: Susannah Conway)

The wisest decision I made this year would have to be deciding to get serious about my health and fitness. And I'm not going to bore you with a dissertation on the why's and how's. You can read all about it in my Fitness Friday posts!

I'm so impressed that you can keep up with this, and really enjoy your honest approach to these prompts. I think you should print out your responses and put them in a little book.

Your post today makes for very interesting reading Cheri :) I love your honesty and I think you should turn your writing into a mini book too
