#reverb 10 belated/action and more

December 13 – Action When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step? (Author: Scott Belsky)

my next step is out the door and into the kitchen to make dinner for my son who has been sick almost all week.
my next step is to grab a book and read, then watch the news, then sleep.
my next step tomorrow is my appointment at the pain clinic, the one i have waited for so long.
my next step is to pick up my son from school tomorrow and to make plans for the holidays with him.
and while i do this, i will be thinking about where i am going and how far i have come this year-

i am the queen of small steps. but the next one is always the biggest.

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? (Author: Victoria Klein)

I can`t possibly reduce it to one thing, although i`m probably ruining the exercise right now:))

I am grateful for my son, for him being in my life, sharing jokes and tears with me and being the wonderful kid he is.
I am grateful for my partner, who is lovely and gorgeous and brave and funny and wise and who is there for me when i need him and here to share our life together.
I am grateful for my parents who support my decision to go back to university with such verve and understanding and who have helped me become who i am.
I am grateful for my friends whom i love dearly and who love me back in a way that touches my very soul.
I am grateful for being alive, for being able to smell cookies and snow and for being able to watch the sky as it changes.

I try to express this gratitude by loving back and giving back and by being there if somebody needs me. ( and by baking:)) )

the next step is always the biggest, and often the hardest, but we take them anyway.
