#reverb10 – day 1 – one word

Better late than never to officially start Reverb 10, right?

One word to describe 2010 for me would have to be OPEN.

I guess it flows over from 2009 as well, but 2010 has been a year where I’ve found myself 100% confident and able to be open about my life. I think I spent far too much time living a life that was, while still pretty awesome, didn’t allow me to live as openly as I should have. I wouldn’t go back and change anything at all about it, but I’ve noticed that over the past year, I’ve been able to do that unabashedly. I don’t know if I used that word right, but I know it’s spelled right, so that should count for something.

I thought about making my word for 2010 WILLING, which is greatly inspired by my dear friend Gina. But that’s her word. And for me, being willing is being open. So there.

One word I hope 2011 will encompass is FUTURE. I’m at a point where I’m pretty sure I’m an official adult now. After all, I had wine one night for dinner that didn’t come with a screw off cap. And I can fry potatoes on my very own. I sometimes listen to public radio. If that’s not grownup, I don’t know what is. I also co-parent a 13 year old, but sometimes he’s more of an adult than me. Like right now when he’s wiping the walls down with this t-shirt. (I don’t know either.) It’s a good time to make some solid plans about family, finances, career, etc.

    WILLING has been a fantastic word for me for 2010 – I can’t believe how much my life has changed just from remembering that word. I think OPEN is just perfect for you! I guess it’s time to start thing of one for 2011…
