#reverb12 is a prompt-a-day series for the month of December that is meant to give us all the chance to reflect on 2012 and the opportunity to write down our hopes and dreams for the coming year. Through December 31st Meredith, Sarah and I will be posting each day with a new prompt. Join us by writing, or join us by reading. No matter what you choose, come with us.
Do-Over: Of the things that happened this year, if you had the chance to do X all over again, what would it be?
On June 17th, Allison gave me a do-over.
Today, we start fresh.
Starting fresh. It felt good. It felt right. It felt like the siren song of an unfamiliar time.
And on June 17th, I needed to hear those words. That it was okay to wake up, walk it off and look forward instead of back.
End of story.
Yes, there are times this year where I wish I had relaxed a little bit more, been more assertive at work, had more patience with myself and others.
But as I look at the measure of my days in 2012, I wouldn’t want to change or even relive any of it. I’ll save that chit for another day.
