December 19 – Healing (#reverb10)

December 19 – Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? (Author: Leoni Allan)

I’ve reached a stage in my life where old hurts and slights are not worth my time anymore. I don’t think about them, dwell on them or let them get me down. I don’t know if it’s a function of age or just a maturing process that we all must go through in our own time. Perhaps it’s a little of both.

It took me years to get here, though.

In 2011, I’d like to see a new, more confident me emerge. I want to let go of my old insecurities and accept myself as I am - whether others accept me or not. I want to feel more comfortable in my skin. To know who I am and what I stand for without a need to justify or explain myself, or even worse, apologize for things I don’t need to be sorry for.
