Wow! I can’t believe today is the last day of this year’s Slice of Life Challenge.

I have sliced every day and commented on the posts of slicers.

My writing evolved in ways that I hadn’t anticipated.

My #OLW for 2021 is evolve.

Most of this month’s slices were about changing and growing.

My #OLW for February was create, which seeped into March because that seems to be my greatest challenge: to create.

And, as I write, I’m realizing that all of the stories I tell myself about who I am and what I am capable of will continue to stop me from doing the one thing we are all put on this Earth to do: create.

We are all creators of some kind or another. And, each of us needs to find our own special contribution and leverage that as lovingly as we can.

As I work on evolving this year into the best version of myself, what I create will bear testimony to who I am and the gifts I bring to the world.

My sincerest hope for all of us, as we move forward into Pandemic Year #2, is that we uncover our special gifts and unleash them onto the world.

Who’s with me?

    This line gave me so much to think about “As I work on evolving this year into the best version of myself, what I create will bear testimony to who I am and the gifts I bring to the world.” I could really linger with this thought, thinking about what I’ve created, what I’ve written does it truly share my heart, the person I want to be, the person I’m becoming? This statement can really be a reflective question. I love it!

    • Thank you! I feel so blessed to be part of this community. To share my writing and to share in the lives of others. Wouldn’t it be great to meet everyone in this community in person? As my granddaughter says, “One day…”

    This is such a great reflection! I need to examine the stories I tell myself too. I hope that the next year really brings you opportunities to evolve.
