I don’t know what it is but these last 2 reverb posts are hard. Everything in me does NOT want to do them and it’s simply because I’m stubborn about my label of being a procrastinator. I am one, dangit, and no internet web writing challenge can change that.
This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year?
I’m not going to lie. This pregnancy thing is beautiful and miraculous and life changing. Blah, blah, blah. But the boobs? The boobs are awesome. For the most part anyways. I mean, the whole “if air so much as touches these things I will curl into the fetal position and die” part of pregnancy boobs sucked. But actually filling out an entire cup o’ bra has been a dream of mine since I was 12.
What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.)

I really don’t know. I’ve thought about it for a while. And I hate ending this writing challenge in such a weak way, but I don’t know that there is a central story. Whatever the story is I always to try to share it in a lighthearted and still honest way. We make things so serious and heavy all of the time that there are days when I feel it’s my personal mission to remind people to lighten up. It’s not that serious.
So my central story? Sunshine Bear. Because no matter how bad something seems there’s probably a reason to smile. Promise.
