Reflecting on 2010: Reverb10, Day 1

How is your year "wrapping" up? I ran across this today - one day into the "Reverb 10" prompts.

Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative that lets you reflect upon your year and "manifest what's next."

"Use the end of your year as an opportunity to reflect on what's happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10 - and the 31 prompts our authors have created for you - you'll have support on your journey."

So, I've decided that I'm going to try this. Thirty-one days of blogging. Thirty-one days of thinking about life in 2010, and getting ready for 2011.

Dec. 1's Prompt From Reverb10: One Word
Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you? - (Author: Gwen Bell)

My word(s) for 2010 - I never can seem to stick with one word, were: Thanks to Spell With Flickr)

I've spent the last year trying to look at life differently. To see life, not as half-empty, but rather, half-full. I've also spent time, since reading Mary Beth Chapman's memoir, to see my life though God's eyes - through his expectations (and gifts).

I'm not sure if my outlook on life has changed. But I'm trying. Yes I know, trying isn't "doing," but I'm making an effort.

I know God has a plan for my life. I'm trying to sit back and SEE what that plan is, rather than trying to "MAKE" it happen.

I'm already thinking about next year's word (or at least the word that will start my year.) I'm not sure what it will be. I'm tossing around a few ideas, but nothing has "claimed" me.

What word would summarize 2010 for you? What word do you want to capture your life at the end of 2011?
