Reverb 10 Challenge: Day 4 & Day 5 (Wonder & Letting Go)

The Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next.” First thing to do is use the prompts that the Reverb 10 website dictates. There are prompts for each day of December 2010. This is my post for December 4th and December 5th, 2010!

How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

I have a natural sense of wonder, a childlike innocence that’s part of me and the person I will always be. Therefore there hasn’t been one specific experience that helped me cultivate this innocent curiosity.  I’m fortunate that it comes naturally.

What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

I let go of a certain few that I mentioned on my December 1st Reverb 10 post, but mostly I let go of expectations. Don’t get me wrong. I still have needs that must be met (ask anyone who really knows me and they will agree). Difference is I don’t expect everyone I encounter to be as loyal, as reciprocal, or as clear in their expectations, beliefs, and ideals as I am.

Bottomline, my momma was right when she stated,”Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres.” Direct translation: Birds of a feather flock together. Keep it real translation: If you’re friends are shady/miserable, the shady/misery will rub off on you! I have let go of individuals and situations that do not align with my ideals. If you lack self-control and live in a constant state of sorrow, I will listen and support you, but unlike before, I have set limits. I no longer invest my energy and hours upon hours of my day pulling a friend out of a (usually) self-imposed funk. Cause funk spreads, pepitas!

Now, I happily cultivate relationships with folks who understand and appreciate who I am because they contribute to the relationship with positivity, love, and reciprocity. Those who have the habit of spreading shade and misery can stay at a distance, no matter how long the person has been a part of my life.  I have released so much internally this year so I’m not turning back. 2011 will be that much better due to my new found freedom.
