Rather Be Reading (one of my ALL TIME favourite blogs) are participating in WEverb this year. According to the website, WEverb is a series of questions and prompts that allows you to reflect back on 2012 and look forward to 2013. Each day in December, there's a new prompt.
8. respond [LISTEN]: Do you actively listen to your inner voice/conscience? Describe a time this year you heard and responded to it.
I consider myself to be fairly in tune with my inner voice. It's hard to think of one exact time that I heard and responded my conscience, but I think that I have been better this year at being at peace with myself. Sometimes my teenage insecurities rear their ugly heads, and I worry excessively about what others think of me. This worry then turns inwards and makes me feel bad about myself. But this year I think I've been much better at remaining positive, and not worrying so much about others' perceptions. It's hard, and will always be a lifelong struggle, but one that I take one day at a time -- because, really, that's all we can do, right?
