2010 was the year I…

Last night I talked to two of my friends and the subject of the upcoming new year came up. With one of them I reflected back on their year and the craziness of it. We looked at where we were last year and the things that had changed in our trip around the sun. With the other there was talk of looking forward to the new year and being out of the clutches of this past one.

So what happened this year? Good, bad, ugly, worse? I had a big year. There are moments that I would not trade for the world and moments I hope to never experience again.

2010 was the year I…

  • embraced talking to strangers.
  • earned too many free Starbucks beverages thanks to the Gold Card.
  • spent more time with myself than anybody else.
  • felt abandoned by God.
  • officially declared my belief in true love.
  • stopped biting my nails for a few months.
  • became too opinionated for my own good.
  • met Matthew Gray Gubler.
  • became more discerning, thanks to the Holy Spirit.
  • played the piano and sang in front of people. a few times.
  • moved to California.
  • turned down things I’d always wanted and accepted things I’d never desired.
  • became friends with Papa Caleb.

What about you? I want everyone to respond to this with a few things about what’s happened to them in 2010; not necessarily long, dramatic paragraphs, but just a quick list recapping the past year’s hangups and triumphs, laughs and tears, randoms and planned. oh. and it does not/should not be exhaustive. πŸ™‚

  1. This year I had money to give Christmas presents. (I don’t always)
    I spent many Saturday evenings on the water singing praises while a praise group led us. Beautiful experiences with dolphin and manatees and the Lord.
    Like you, I spend more time with myself than any one else.
    I’m loving writing a blog I just started this year.
    I lost 20 lbs and found them again.
    I saved up points for $20 in gift cards. I’m learning to be frugal.
    I’m learning to forgive.

  2. What a great idea! I think i’m gonna try this… although, the beginning of my year was not so worthy of talking about. I did alot of running from the Lord during the first 6 months of this year.
    Merry Christmas, and Happy New year!

  3. Remember your chains
    Remember the prison that once held you
    before the love of God broke through
    Remember the place
    you were without grace
    when you see where you are now
    Remember your chains
    …and remember your chains are gone. πŸ™‚
