Reverb 10 Challenge: Day 30 and Day 31 (Happy 2011!)

DECEMBER 30 – GIFT PROMPT: This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year?

Only one? Well then I have to say the greatest gift has to be Nila! I’ve droned on and on about her but I love her so! She’s shown me a different side of myself. People have often doubted if I had a maternal instinct. I even doubted this at one point. Nila has shown me that I am nurturing, loving, protective, and that I will be a wonderful mom. There is no greater gift.

DECEMBER 31 – CORE STORY:  What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.)

I looked through all my reflections for the month of December and my central story is clear. I am a talented, resourceful, loving, pepa™ and Nila obsessed Dominicana who has many aspirations. I also doubt my ability to fulfill my dreams. Whether its due to fear or indecision, I am the only person holding myself back. I know this. I always have but these 31 prompts/posts have brought that to light for the world to see. The most important thing I have discovered about myself is that no matter how often I hesitate, no matter how inconsistent I can be at times, I have a fire that cannot be extinguished.

Today is January 1, 2011. Today I cancel plans with others and follow through on my passions, my craft, my journey, and I do it for me. It begins today.
