Sometimes, I need to look back to see where I have been, what I have learned. As I thought about how my word showed up in November, I realized that my daily thankful posts let me DWELL in gratitude. And as I look toward December, I want to DWELL in joy. Every Single Day.
Emily P. Freeman had a simple set of questions for looking back and looking ahead that I will use to frame my dwelling in adventure.
1. Name something you miss. I think most of all I miss the simple act of being close to people. Sitting on a couch or across a table without distance and masks. I miss not always thinking, thinking thinking – is this safe? I have grown so weary of always being on guard.
2. What was a moment of celebration in November? November was a great month for knitting and writing. Along with my daily posts, I worked on a small book of daily pages.
3. Name something you hope for in December. I am hoping for good news about the vaccine. I am hoping to continue my daily practices of writing and making pages in my Advent book. I am hoping to document moments of joy.
Thank you Honoré for hosting our 2020 one word reflections (and for introducing me to daily pages).
