Reverb10 Day 11 Prompt:

Things. What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011?

1. Patriarchy. I’m tired of this game. Why play?

2. Wearing the ‘Consumer’ label. “Be a global citizen with your money, rather than a consumer.” ~Lynne Twist

3. My rose-colored glasses. Time to ditch these babies and see what’s really going on.

4. Dance belongs only on the dance floor. I’m takin’ it to the streets!

5. Stuff I got because it was cheap or on-sale. Time to fill my home and adorn my body with only what I love.

6. The ‘Being brilliant, audacious, and beautiful is vain’ Story. A funky old story (thank you Puritans).

7. Being careful. This isn’t full of care, now is it?

8. The Rules. They’re just made up, anyway

9. ‘Spiritual = Nice, passive, push-over’. Hat tip to Andrew Harvey and his Institute for Sacred Activism for lighting a fire under me on this one!

10. The dimmer switch in my heart. ’nuff said.

11. Being a writer and not an author.

Wonderful list. I especially like number 6!

Oh my, numbers 10 and 11 are so spot-on.

I LOVE #11. As soon as I read it, I thought WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT! So, I’ve decided to appropriate it as my #12, if you don’t mind.

Great list. xo

Hell yes, Julie! I’m freaking in love with your list! #3 has my twitching in my seat … which means I need to address that in my own life. I want so much to see the good in everything. Which is great, except when I don’t see what’s real. Oh my. Yes …. this needs some addressing, for sure.
