This month I’m participating in #Reverb12 which is a daily prompt I will try to respond to every day or when I feel motivated to respond to it at least! Check it out because it’s pretty cool.
Prompt for December 12: Unexpected Passion: What new hobby or interest piqued your passion this year? Or did you think about an old passion in a new way?
I’m not sure if this is really a hobby, this year was about discovering new things and new places. Some days I feel like all I do is go work, go home and do it all over again. While living in Atlanta, I attempted to go out to all the different areas of Atlanta and discover new places. I loved going to almost every single park in the metro Atlanta area, Little Five Points, Buckhead, Sandy Springs, midtown, east side, west side, downtown and SO much more.
I took the time to go to all kinds of places and really live in Atlanta. I wanted to be a part of it and I wanted things to be different. This really inspired me to really do different things every single day instead of repeating my days over and over.
Prompt for December 13: Do-Over: Of the things that happened this year, if you had the chance to do X all over again, what would it be?
I’ve gotten this question a few times lately. I think there are always things I regret or wish I had done differently, but I also believe our mistakes and failures are what teach us the most. Sometimes I wish I had graduated sooner, wish I had been a better girlfriend, sister and friend at times, traveled more, spent less on trivial items, took the time to learn more, etc. Though I think these things sometimes, I’m also trying to let go of wishes and things I wish I could change.
I can try to change for the future and I can try to mend… but that’s about all I can do. We can’t change our past, only make things better for the future.
