Reverb 10 – Day 31

December 31

Prompt: Core story. What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.)

Even though I just wrote about it in my last post, I believe that the central story in my life is love and relationships. That does not automatically equate to the “romantic” side of it all, but it does have to do with the love I feel for people and the relationships that I’ve formed, maintained, strengthened, or discontinued with people. In fact, I believe that less than half of how I feel has to do with the romantic side of it, but that’s neither here nor there. This year was all about getting back in touch with people, and finding my niche within certain groups of friends. Everything isn’t perfect, so unfortunately, there are certain places that I don’t fit, but I have been blessed and fortunate to find some places where I’ve found a niche. No matter the situation between me and someone else, if I loved them once, I’ll always love them…the type of love just evolves and changes based on our situation. I’ve learned this year that sometimes you have to love people from a distance, and that everyone isn’t meant for every aspect of your life. I love the interactions I have with people on a daily basis, and I’m always hanging out with one person or talking to another or trying to help someone out…that’s how I share it with the world. If I consider someone a friend, they become extremely important to me, and I make it my business to let them know that. I think that this year has taught me that people deserve to know how I feel about them, and that positivity goes a lot further than negativity ever could. I’m making it my mission in 2011 to continue what I started in 2010: to make myself happy, to try and exude positivity as much as I can, and to help myself and my friends/family to reach their full potential. That’s been the theme of who I am for as long as I can remember, and now it’s time to really put what I want to do into action…it’s been a hell of a year, and I wouldn’t have traded any experience, positive or negative, for anything in the world because it’s made me into who I am today. I hope everyone reading this has an amazing New Year’s Eve, and has a productive and successful 2011. Thanks for accompanying me on this journey of self-realization and self-discovery!
