The  #reverb10 continues at its catch-up pace…. :)

December 14 – Appreciate

What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?

My health. And only because I’ve seen so many people deal with poor health this year. Moving mum into a nursing home sparked it, followed by lots of other friends and colleagues either having health issues of their own, or, like me, had to deal with their mother’s health.

Seriously, this year has been the year of caring for your mum. There are 5 of us in my immediate circle. Insane.

I need to start eating healthier and exercising more. I’m working on it.

December 15 – 5 Minutes

Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.

Getting married • the honeymoons • seeing George Michael in concert with Nicky • seeing Newton Faulkner in concert with Anna • Taking mum to be admitted into hospital • being Eliza’s Fairygodmother • kicking vodafone’s arse • ROBOT VACCUM CLEANERS! • 2hrs in the back lane talking to twitter weirdos • getting my baking mojo back • lots of crying, curled up on the floor in the kitchen • the support i’ve gotten from work • difficult freelance clients and awesome freelance clients • van and harry’s wedding • dancing at the basement • jaffle maker! •

In short – lots of love, tears, despair and hope. My year has been like Melbourne – four seasons in one day.

December 16 – Friendship

How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?

Can I say it was a bit of both? My friends have been absolute champions this year. They were a constant source of… well, everything… and then there were times when they would go above and beyond the call of duty. Some days it was as simple as just agreeing with me that things were being shit…

My friends are awesome :)

December 17 – Lesson Learned

What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?

I learned that it’s okay to be me. That I don’t need to always try to please everyone else.

I haven’t completed mastered it, though. So I’ll have to keep working on it.

December 18 – Try

What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

I gotta try to lose more weight. Cause while I was kinda successful this year?… I gotta try harder in 2011.

December 19 – Healing

What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?

I’m not too sure if I feel healed just yet… but what has gotten me to this stage is the love and support of my husband and my nearest and dearest friends.

Simple as that :)

All I want is for it to continue next year…
