Reverb 11 | Prompt 31 | Clean Slate

Some of my absolute favorite ladies Sarah and her partner-in-crime, Meredith are leading a December blog series called Reverb.  I can’t explain it nearly so well as she does except to say that it involves reflecting on the life you’ve lead over the past year.  The highs, the lows, the changes and your hopes for the year to come.  I told her I would love to join in for a post or two when the prompt felt right.

Prompt for December 31:  Clean Slate.  Tomorrow is a new year.  What do you want to do with your clean slate?

2011 was a year of plans.  Of follow-through.  Of always having an end goal in mind.  Of keeping my eye on the prize.

2012 is a blank slate in the truest sense of the word.  Tabula rasa.  A new leaf.

I can see a few shadows in the fog, but that’s where it ends.

The outline of the picture frame, but not the details of the artwork it contains.

There are so many things I could try to force into that picture, but I’m not quite ready yet.

Instead, I’m going to live presently.

I’m going to act.

I’m not going to squirrel things away for the most convenient time or the ideal situation.

I’m going to cling to the idea of opportunity.  To the hope of possibility.

To the promise of dreams brought to life.

What are you going to do with your blank slate?

What are your New Year’s Eve plans?
