Create + Soar

This year, I am participating in Reverb. For the month of  December, I will be participating in prompts that will help me to reflect and propel myself into 2011. The first prompt (yeah, I’m late):

Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?


2010 has been a year of self-development and creativity. I spent a lot of time alone (on purpose) being mindful and creating a path for me to develop myself and my talents. I spent the bulk of the year working on my film, which was a labor of love, and realized that I could, indeed, do it. For me, this was the first “real” time that I put myself on the line creatively. I literally had to stand alone with my work. Now that I have done it, I am dedicating myself to developing and using all of my creativity in every area of my life — professionally, domestically, and most importantly, as a mama.


I see so much coming together in the next year. Because of putting myself out there this past year, I know I am going to soar in 2011. It will be a year that more of my dreams come to fruition. Because of my film, I will be traveling and speaking more and I am determined to continue to push myself outside of my comfort zone. The more I do this, the higher I will fly.
