2007 Tuesdays Review Meme (for newbies like me)

I've only been blogging for 10 weeks, so I can't pick the 1st post of each month to do the 2007 meme, but I can share 1st line from each Tuesdays post, just as I shared Mondays at Small Reflections earlier today.

Week 1 - October 23rd
Inspired by Carla's example & open invitation to participate in our own ways, I promised to begin a Sacred Life exploration once I managed to set up a blog of my own.

Week 2 - October 30th
"We need to let go of everything that no longer serves us.

Week 3 - November 6th
I'm resting today ... to recover my health ... hoping that these respiratory symptoms will pass without wreaking havoc on my body.

Week 4 - November 13th
I do my best to strive for balance.

Week 5 - November 20th
1st Post - In Carla's Sacred Sunday post this week, she wrote of EGO as "edging God out" ... something I'd heard before, but forgotten.

2nd Post - I just watched an inspirational presentation that really touched me and I wanted to share it.

Week 6 - November 27th
I found this Cherokee Story at Peajay's Blog and thought I'd share it with you here since she invited readers to pass it on.

Week 7 - December 4th
I received this in email today ... laughed out loud until my sides hurt and tears flowed ... then decided I needed to pass it along because there's just so much WISDOM here.

Week 8 - December 11th
"SUCCESS is not found in what you have achieved, but rather in WHO you have become.

Week 9 - December 18th
This snow globe plays "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" and was a gift from my

Week 10 - December 25th
you and yours
from me
Molly and Ms. Kitty
here in Southern California
to wherever you live.

Week 11 - January 1st
I've only been blogging for 10 weeks, so I can't pick the 1st post of each month to do the 2007 meme, but I can take 1st line from each Tuesday's post to see what happens.

Well, it looks as though I wound up with 12 entries with 11 Tuesdays (counting today, ending with the opening sentence of this post) plus a 2nd post on November 20th. So there's my 2007 review, complete with links for anyone who wants to read more. If you're a "Blogging Buddy" and haven't snagged a "thank you graphic" ... read on.

With Happy Feet, I'm dancing for joy and wishing you a Happy New Year! May 2008 bring peace, prosperity, joy and wonder to all.

Hugs and blessings from Molly, Ms Kitty and storyteller


Michele said...

Great job on the meme!

I dropped in to say I left you a little link love on my blog today.

Happy New Year!


storyteller said...

Michele - Thanks for the visit, compliment, best wishes for the New Year, smiles and the link-love! All are much appreciated! I'll visit later when I finish clearing out email.
Hugs and blessings,

Karen said...

Congratulations on a fantastic (if abbreviated) year!

storyteller said...

Karen - Thanks. I enjoyed the retrospective process and practicing creating links that open a new tab (something I learned recently from Smiler and Melissa), but was surprised at how long it took to do THIS one compared to the one at Small Reflections. Things were very slow in the Blogosphere in the evening as compared to mornings, so I'll keep that in mind for the future when clicking back and forth to retrieve (as in find, copy, and paste) information like this.
Hugs and blessings,

Sounds like a very good year, indeed! I'm psyched to have met you and look forward to more contact THIS year! And if you're going back to New Mexico, let me know!!! Seriously.

Maude Lynn said...

EGO = edging God out. I have never heard this before, and it's brilliant! Thanks for sharing this.

storyteller said...

Dream - It HAS been quite a year of change for me. At this time in 2007 I had no inkling I'd be Blogging, but here I am ... off and running (with my fingers that is). I assume you're speaking of Taos ... and I guess I've not given a return visit any thought yet, but one never knows.

Mama Zen - I thought Carla came up with a good one with that too ... though she might have gotten it somewhere else. I'm glad you liked it.

Hugs and blessings to both of you,
