So Many Posts! Did You Miss Any?

I've been posting so much lately. I wanted to just re-announce that I'm back to blogging at the happyluau for 2012, fast and furious and imPerfectly. Some posts are light and hopefully inspirational with quotes and videos. Others are deeper. I wanted to list them here so far in case you've missed any:

Word for 2012: ImPeRfectIoN
Listening
Radical Acceptance
Why I Changed My Name to Olivia
Word of the Year Box
Doing Art...ImpErFEctLy
One Year Ago Today

I have enjoyed and appreciated your feedback so much, and actually, the whole process of sharing imperFectly this year that I want to continue at this pace, so hold onto your hat. Or not--if you lose it, it's not the end of the world, as you can venture hatless and even disheveled into your day (as I have been known to do)...imPerfectly!

Hi Olivia!

Jane, Oh my goodness! I haven't heard from you in SO long! I think you changed your blog and somehow I lost it so I'm going back there right now. I'm sorry to have lost track of you. Great to see you, my friend! xoO

Hatless and disheveled, yup, that describes me some days. haha
Imperfection is actually quite fun sometimes. Enjoy!

Neat photo effects.

Thanks, Mary. I want to make it fun each and every day. Even when it is sad or I really screw up badly. Realizing that I'm human. Excellent is fine but Perfect is an illusion. I always would strive for perfection and then feel each day that I had failed--a sorry way to live. So probably "Fun Every Day" is an illusion as well, but it's something healthy to strive for, I think. Thank you for commenting, Mary, it is always good to see you :) xoO

Oh, my, yes I had missed some. I am not used to missing a post in just a day or two. What has sprung free in you?

Hi, Kelly,

You know I think it's my word "Imperfection". I am willing to be just as I am. My posts might be poorly written or well written, interesting or not, etc. and I have let go of all of that.

Another thing I have let go of Kelly, is who my audience is. In the past I've felt uncomfortable with being vulnerable to certain people who read my blog. My regular community is the most loving and supportive and amazing...so I've decided to just be vulnerable anyway, and let the others do what they do (since they will anyway). I don't want to lose the closeness I value with each of you.

Also, I thought about what I would regret if I were to die or say, the world ends in 2012 :) One thing would be missing out on the connections I value so
much.

So I decided to GO FOR IT :)

I know I've changed my rhythm...so I'm glad I posted this so that you and others can catch up!

Thanks for asking, Kelly. It made me think about this. I think I'll do a post on it in and schedule it to post in the future. I want to pace things so that everyone can keep up.

Love and peace to you today and every day, xoO
