Reverb10: 11Things

What 11 things your life doesn't need in 2011?

December 11 – 11 Things, What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life? (Author: Sam Davidson)

1. 75lbs: plan weight watchers, work out watching what I eat.
2. Debt: plan make a debt reduction plan to eliminate all debt in 2011
3. Compulsive shopping: plan when I get the urge, learn how to walk away
4. Over eating: plan learn to stop eating when the signal to stop says stop
5. Beating myself up: Plan when the thought occurs to me stop and change it to something encouraging. 
6. Self sabotage/ Self doubt: plan realize that when I stop doing something I love or I don't even try something new, or when I stop doing something that feels right because I don't think that its good enough I will realize that it's self doubt/sabotage and by believing it or allowing it to sink in it will not serve my best interests and I no longer want to allow fear to rule my life.  7.Broke: plan to replace that word with plenty! Leave the broke mindset forever. It has no place in my life. 
8. Worry: plan when I begin to worry stop acknowledge what I am worrying about and ask myself why am I worrying remind myself to have faith and trust in the Universe and myself.
9. Overly Sensitive: plan to learn like the 4 agreements take nothing personal.
10. Inconsistant physical activity: plan and follow thru on a real livable work out plan 5 days a week. 
11. Regret: plan learn to trust my decisions, if I make a decision accept it and move on.

Reverb10: Wisdom

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

 My wisest decision was to move across the country with my son to Syracuse NY. I live in an apartment now with my boyfriend, I am happy most days but it's an adjustment and making friends has been a challenge along with the weather. My son seems to really be thriving here which is great. I am enjoying a new place, new scenery but have yet to find my niche I do realize that it takes time. Part of me is enjoying living a type of lifestyle I never had before but another part of me yearns for something different. The play out is still new and up in the air. I moved in June and it's been 6 months and my son said so how long will this life fulfill you. He knows me I said not sure yet but at least till your a junior in college.

ReVerb 10

I'm a little late in coming in to the Reverb 10. Here is my catch up.

1. One Word: Change

Change, because I moved across the country, I left my husband it may have been a short marriage but it was my only one and I truly did love him and it was horrible, hard and sad to leave. I moved out of my mom's house where I lived with my son during my marriage, I quit my job when I moved. I left all my friends and family except my son he came with me, Thank God he is a lifesaver and my biggest supporter.

2. Writing:

What do I do each day that doesn't contribute to my writing and can I eliminate it. I putz! Putz around the house anything to avoid doing things I love to do like write, collage, photograph, create. Like I will sit and watch the news for hours or wash the one dish in the sink or put some paper away or look for that one thing you know the thing. I can eliminate it, I must.

3. Moment:

One moment Jan 17, 2010 Sunrise at the Bosque del Apache NM to see the Snow Geese fly out freezing cold still quiet and then they start honking like a train and lift off all at the same time. It is magical, life changing like nothing else is happening in the world and all you know and feel are the geese. Life stands still.

4. Wonder:

Cultivating my sense of wonder is to look at the world as photographs something new you've never seen before even your same route to work if you see new photographs it is always new. New scenery I am always searching for a new place to visit everything can be fresh under the sun.

5. Let Go:

 I let go of my job the security that it provides and also moved away from my mother and the security she provided. That was hard very hard. I would say my husband too but he didn't provide security. He was a sweet man just not ready to be married.

6. Make:

I made our Christmas tree ornaments, well I bought ribbon and tied bows to the balls but I made a travel collage in my Art Journal about 2weeks ago.

7. Community:

I found community in the AAHL Booster club here in Syracuse but I'm not a huge hockey fan so it only really fits me partially. Since I moved I haven't found the artistic photographic community here yet. I have joined a photography club but I'm still new. I would like to be part of an online community and have yet to find that. I would like to be more involved with online communities in Art Journalling, photography and fashion fellow bloggers like myself.

8. Beautifully Different:

Wow I wasn't sure about this one but I believe that my difference is fearlessness in some areas. I travel and will often go by myself. I do want I want I don't really regard what people say or think I'm very independent and in my family that is very different. My family tends towards security and doing what you should do. Where I am always doing what I want to do what makes me happy. What makes people light up, that's a harder one. I always think that they know I will show up, I will dance at their wedding and bring an appropriate gift if invited. I will comment on peoples outfits and be humorously drunk but not embarrassing.

9. Party:

Party of the year hands down AAHL Booster club convention jello shots 1st night! Casual clothes costume contest cartoon characters buffet dinner Howie sang New York, New York good DJ even if a little light on the music and then jello shots and pudding shots in the hospitality room. The cookies and cream OMG!!!!

Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to Transform?

                                                   What do you wish to Transform?

I wish in this Holiday Season, the last month of the year, of the decade, to Transform myself. I wish for the transformation to let fear fall the wayside and allow the power that I do possess to shine through. I wish to transform into a thinner more athletic adventurous self. I wish the transformation will eliminate all self sabotage. Allowing myself to transform into my true self.

Thank you Jamie Ridler,  for the great prompt.

I am preparing to create my Full Cold Moon dream broad. I have been tearing thru magazines and catalogues pulling any image I love. I have no idea what it will look like until I start creating it. Full Cold Moon is on the Winter Solstice!! Thanks

What do I need this week? Weekly Intention.

I need to Believe, that I am worthy of loving relationships, financial wealth and everything in between. That is what I need this week. To truly BELIEVE it!!

I have taken a break about 2weeks from blogging regularly, setting Intentions, Wishcasting and even photographing and the gym and yoga and artist dates. Getting caught up in Thanksgiving, errands and being a stay home mom and shopping way too much. Back to normal which means photographing, journaling, Intentions, Wishcasting and Art. Back to normal and see what happens. This avoidance to what I love to do means that I have a block so I need to meditate, yoga and journal it out of me.
