DIY WTF Wednesday:
 I Dare You

It feels wonderful to create and share these weekly glimpses of and gratitude for the fabulous people who make my life. And to watch the effects ripple in and out.

Digging thru old photos, recalling beginnings, reliving memories, noticing patterns and boiling fun and fondness down to the habits and attributes that give each relationship a special space in my own journey. The satisfaction of expression. The glee of no-holds-barred imagining of a fabulous next adventure.

And the immeasurable enjoyment of witnessing the other witnessing my dim and honest reflection of themselves.

When I kicked off this project, 26 weeks ago, I really hoped that the huge and multi-directional benefits of these weekly celebrations would make them contagious. So far, they haven’t been.

So…. now I invite you directly. Grab my format and fill in the blanks! You can book a week here on our blog. You can send me a link to your own.

I dare you. You’ll be sooo glad you did.

Sometimes you just gotta say WTF….

    These are indeed beautiful tributes. I went to a funeral last week, for somebody I really cared for, and I wished I had let him know, more blatantly and more frequently. Having said that, I am still unlikely to do one of these tributes, as I don’t blog – unless I use your space.

    I do want to tell you that I love you and appreciate your friendship and I admire what you are doing here, and I love reading about your family progress on your blog and on facebook.

    Keep it up, you lovely person. Hug your family for me.

    • Aw, thank you so much Janice. I am so sorry for your loss.

      I am so grateful for our friendship and for the online world we can share.

      You are most welcome to share your gratitude as a WTFW guest post, if you ever feel inspired to do so.

      Lots of love to you xoxox
