Wow, I’ve not been doing a very good job at this ThinkKit thing…Here are a few highlights from the days I’ve missed. Let me know if there is one of these you’d really like to know more about and I’ll create a different blog to expand:
December 9:What completely surprised you this year? Was it good…or not so good? Tell us a story!
I’m not sure, honestly. I don’t know that I’ve been blown away or truly surprised. The thing that I guess has surprised me is how much the Storyline Conference has affected me and challenged me to grow as a person and really figure out the role I want to play and the story I want to tell with me life. I expected it to be a good conference. I didn’t expect it to be still lingering in my heart and mind all these weeks later. I didn’t expect looking at my Storyline materials to give me a little stress because it is still sitting there unfinished. I didn’t expect for writing the simple sentences to answer the questions to be such a challenge – or such a heart-opening experience. I was surprised to find that my passions were okay right where they are and that the story I’m supposed to tell is the one where I can be the best version of myself!
December 8:What did you make this year? Whether something personal, like a song or some art, or a work project, share your process and the end result of your creation.
My friend Libby asked me to make a fun creation for her blog. It’s one of my favorite quotes. Here you go:
What do you want your life (or your kitchen, your job, your ____) to look like? Create your own inspiration board.
This one is going to take some work. Check back later 🙂
December 6:How do you want to get involved in your community this year?
More time being involved at the Library! More time doing local theater. More time feeling like a part of the community I’ve lived in for years and years. I feel like, in some ways, I’m already really connected to my community because I work for a place that is so involved in the community. But, when I really think about it, I know very few people who don’t come to Sherwood Oaks. I know very few people who think differently than I do, believe different things than I do, and have different priorities than I do. And, I believe those things are so important to a happy, healthy life. I feel like being around people who are not just like you is the key to help define exactly WHO you are and WHAT you are.
December 5:Interview at least one other person about their favorite moments of the year. Share what you heard.
Yeah, this one is going to take awhile, too… In all actuality, the beginning of the month is going to take awhile. I might get back to them; I might not. At least I’m trying to get caught up…right?
