#reverb10 - Day 3 - Moment

“December 3 – Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).” (Author: Ali Edwards)

I have not lived an incredibly vibrant life. The majority of my current existence has been dull, muted and sprinkled with splats of darkness. However, throughout 2010 I have begun to stretch, breathe and grow. I began to come alive when I started the process of transforming my blog, Kreative Notions, into a real life business. It was something I had thought about, talked about to the point of exhaustion and wanted to do for at least two years. I’m certain my husband was thinking, “Shut up and get on with it already.”

Receiving a sellers permit, business license and seeing the fictitious name statement published in a local newspaper was exhilarating, exciting and mind blowing. I finally did it. I finally gave birth to Kreative Notions. I held the printed papers within my hand, stared at them, read them, admired them, embraced them and framed them to hang on the wall. I carried copies into the bank and bashfully stated that I wanted to open a business account. A plastic card resides in my wallet boasting the name Kreative Notions.

Now I’m just waiting for my call from Oprah. :)

I’ve faced some challenges; granting thirty-year-old fears a hall pass and meandered through the garden of desire. I attended my first Zumba class, greeting my fear of groups with a newly found desire to put myself out there and live the life that has been given to me and has granted me the gift of BEing alive.

Perhaps my life has not always been filled with bright orange walls and lively green pastures and bowls of Cheerios….but now it feels so good to be present, breathe, stretch and grow.
