December 5: Interviewing Others

December 5:  Interviewing Others

Today’s prompt for Think Kit is: Interview 3 people about their favorite moments of the year. Share what you heard.

1. The first person I spoke with had a fond memory of the Indianapolis Fire Department being called to help cut a child’s head out of a lego table. Apparently it is much easier to get stuck in a lego table than to get unstuck from one.

2. The second person I spoke with was my Madre. One of her favorite memories was rushing to Terre Haute on my nephew’s birth day. We planned to meet family and friends in the Haute for a baby shower, but instead met Anderson, my lovely nephew, for the first time. Mom said that she and Dad arrived just in time to hear the lullaby being played on the intercom in the maternity ward to announce his arrival.

3. The third person I spoke with is an awesome new friend from Twitter. Actually, I think he may be from Carmel, but it’s all relative. He shared three favorite moments:
“- Singing on stage with Madonna at the Super Bowl. (Wowie wow, huh?)
– Getting a new job that I love (even though it drives me crazy). And…
– Turning the corner with my 2-year-old niece from her being afraid of me to loving on me. Man, I love my nieces and nephew!”

This has been MJH reporting from Indianapolis. Over and out!

P.S. – Please feel welcome to share your favorite memories of 2012 in the comments!


December 4: What was the wisest decision you made this year?

December 4: What was the wisest decision you made this year?

Besides accepting Chris’ wedding proposal….? 🙂

Another wise decision that I made this year was to participate in Project 137: A community of amazing people who want to love well, live fully, let go deeply, and make a difference. Each day for 137 days, we have received prompts encouraging us to love well, live fully and let go deeply. There have been writing assignments, day-brightening assignments, meditations, dares and double-dog-dares. And often in the same prompts.

While I can’t say much about it at the moment, one of the things that I did as a personal challenge was to reach out to a colleague I’ve admired for years and asked her about her career and educational paths. She was ready to share and has been very encouraging since. It took a little to get my out of my comfort zone to reach out to her, but I’m thankful that I did. Project 137 helped motivate me.

Today is Day 111.


December 1: Your Year in Photos


December 1: Your Year in Photos
Your year in photos. Did one photo encapsulate your year? Maybe it takes a gallery. Go out and take a new one that represents your year if you need to. Let’s see those photos.

It was a year of change, growth and beginnings.
