A little crochet update to end the year, and the last of Kat's Reverb 12 questions. I'm having so much fun with this new blanket and even though the colours are not what I usually work with, they are a refreshing and fun change. Girl 2 loves the colours, but does keep slipping in other brighter colours and I keep the balance with cream! This could be dazzling by the time it's finished.
What daunted me and how am I going to overcome those fears in 2013?
I think one of my greatest fears is that I'm not going to get done everything I hope to get done, and the only way to overcome this is to get in and do it and do it now! In a nutshell.
What word did you select to be your travelling companion in 2012?
I've never selected a word to accompany a year, even though I do rather like the idea of it. I think I've been daunted by a single word influencing my entire year, or not choosing the right word, so I've thought about selecting a word a month (or a little longer if needs be). So a list of words is required. How I love a bit of list making! 45 words later, I'm bamboozled as to which word I should choose to start me off for the year ... adventure, achieve, balance, expand, notice, stretch, sparkle, wonder. All fabulous words that sing to me. Will sit quietly and choose one. Are you going to choose a word as your travelling companion in 2013?
What can you celebrate now about you?
I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. I am creative, and find inspiration at every turn. I have had moments when I have sparkled and shined, and others that have been bleak, but the combination of all these moments have brought me to who I am now. I celebrate all that I have done and welcome what is still to be achieved [and secretly applaud that I can even write this paragraph and send it out into the world].
Where are you now?
I am at the very end of a busy, eventful year and I love sorting it all through and packaging it up to reflect on, but right now I'm too exciting about all the new and wonderful possibilities that are in store for this new year coming. I have already booked in for yoga and piano lessons. I will be taking a new role within our family business that is exciting. My eldest daughter is starting secondary school, youngest in Grade 5. Oh, and I will be feeling fabulous due to all those walks I'll be taking!!!
Wishing you a wonderful last day of 2012.
