WordPress set up a post-a-day challenge that will offer daily topics to inspire more blogging. I’m sure I won’t always want to write exactly what they suggest I write about but it may come in handy once in a while. Today’s topic (or was it yesterday, I’m not sure..) is to answer the question: What is the single most important thing you accomplished in 2010?
Of course there’s no way I’d be able to answer that in a word. I wouldn’t even be able to answer it in a sentence or a clear and concise paragraph. This question can be answered so many different ways. It could be the wise financial or personal decisions I made. Those have long term effects on my life. But I think I’m going to go with my gut instinct on this one and say my greatest accomplishment of 2010 was a willingness to explore, to question and to ignite possibilities. My greatest accomplishment was a willingness to read Thoreau, to blog and to reach out to long lost friends and colleagues. It was to get back into acting and writing and making art. It was a willingness to commit when commitment was inconvenient and painful. My greatest accomplishment was to follow through with the seeds that interested me. It was reading a book because someone suggested it or making baskets because I wanted to know how. It was jumping on a gaited horse when I didn’t know what gaiting was. It was hitting the trail and facing steep cliffs when I was afraid. It was going down open roads without maps. My greatest accomplishment was to face the world with arms wide open.
What about you?
