#reverb10:Beyond Avoidance

December 20 – 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?) (Author: Jake Nickell)


I tend to address hard things, sooner or later, because addressing them is usually far less painful or onerous than fretting about them.

I was very anxious about pulling together my Lilly grant proposal, but working with a coach and tackling it piece by piece worked out well, despite the final answer from Lilly.

I have a quilt top that was a grand experiment that I really need to finish. I'm scared that it will look awful. Will I do it? Yes, most certainly, but not before Christmas....

When I read these prompts it is really clear to me why I am NOT doing this this year...LOL...It really is so much better to just tackle things head-on and get through it - but I really hope that you have fewer things to tackle next year.

grand experiments are the best! remember *ahem* i've heard "life is a verb"... so grand experiments mean you're living it! wooo-hooo
