#Reverb10 is a movement to encourage folks to tackle a daily prompt with the intent of reflecting on their year. If you’d like to get involved, it’s not too late! You can backtrack to previous prompts or simply jump in where you are. If you’re interested, you can see all my #reverb10 posts here.
Dec. 20: Beyond Avoidance: What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?) (Author: Jake Nickell)
Honestly, the only thing I probably should have done this year that I didn’t actually do is get my house in better order. How boring an answer is that? But as I’ve covered in a previous #reverb10 post, I’m a big advocate of actually doing things you want or feel meant to do rather than putting them off for “some day.”
So, while a Responsible Adult probably shouldn’t have seven Chipotle sacks sitting beside her desk, or eight pairs of shoes acting as an obstacle course in the hallway, or stair railings masquerading as clothes-drying devices or coat/scarf/hat/random canvas bag racks, I’m not going to bemoan my failure at living up to that title too much because of what I’ve gained: writing time, workout time, movie time, hanging-out-with-friends-(though-not-at-my-house-because-it-looks-like-a-hurricane-hit-it) time, adventure time, etc.
That being said, I do intend to make some efforts in this area before the year’s out because it’s sort of driving me batty (and anyone who could see the state of it would probably think me batty anyway).
