i know i'm super far behind here...

...but this has been a really hectic holiday season!!
we're on our 4th day of steady rain! 

Dec 16 Prompt: Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?
i would have to say my friend dan. he and his lovely wife cynthia and i, were having this most expansive and interesting conversation regarding having friendships with the opposite sex, trust and altering our behavior to please another.things abraham-hicks has been saying all along too but a light bulb went off in my head with something dan said that evening and i really got it...you can't change (and shouldn't) your behavior enough to please another.

Dec 17 Prompt: Lesson learned. What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?

hmmmm...i would say my level of compassion has really shot up this past year. Lazaris says you can't be a compassionate person until you have felt sorrow. I believe that to be very true. I have done many things in my life that i am truly and utterly sorry for and can never take back, so i've had to do a lot of self-forgiveness work and have lots of love and compassion for who i was at the time. but because of all that work i feel so much better about myself and have seen the evidence of my more compassionate self!
Dec 18 Prompt: Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn't go for it? 

one word: zumba!!

Dec 19 Prompt: Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?
anyone who's been following my blog for awhile knows that i've been doing alot of healing these past 2 years and it's definitely a "drip-by drip evolution." altho ever since i got back from africa it has sped up tremendously...in fact it feels like a whirlwind right now!! but that's a good thing!
Dec 20 Prompt: Beyond avoidance. What should you have done this year but didn't because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)
definitely finances...i made a lot of headway this year but confess that i've been a slacker lately with being so busy. There are adjustments i need to do with quickbooks and paypal that i haven't gotten to, so it's made the whole process right now sorta time consuming. but that's one of my huge goals next year is to keep up with my bookkeeping and stay on my budget better. and...YES...i will do it!!

I can relate to the 'avoidance' prompt!!

I'm usually VERY on top of my finances down to the LAST PENNY, but since the paycut this year, dealing with my bills/checkbook is only a reminder of how little $$ I have coming in...happily, some sales on Etsy are changing that!!

I can answer that bonus question in the same way - YES, i will stay on top of it and remember what i DO have coming in =-)
