reverb10 day 19: healing

Today's reverb10 prompt comes from author Leoni Allan:

What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?

OK. This is how I'm going to approach this.

I am not going to say that I needed healing this year/was healed this year. I read lots of blogs and know lots of people who went through some true healing or need true healing as a result of real physical injury or sickness, emotional or spiritual issues, marital or relationship problems, deaths of loved ones, severe depression- things like that. I have needed to heal in my life before, but I am not going to pull something out of 2010 and say it healed me or I need to heal just for the sake of answering a prompt.

Instead, I will say I pointed my life in a new direction this year, and will continue to do so in 2011. A more positive direction, physically and mentally, and one that was much needed, as I have covered extensively in previous reverb10 posts. And this new direction will hopefully help me to be a better person, a more caring person to myself and to others, and will help make 2011 as impactful as possible in a really positive way.

Brilliant take on this and I'm glad that you didn't feel you had to adhere. I don't think today's prompt necessarily is something that applies to me like that either so I shall see where I go with it. Thanks for the inspiration <3

Living more positively really can change your life :) I think it's all about your perspective on things.

This was just great. I hope that good foundation carries you through into yet another year without the need to heal!
