When you're an adult, time flies so much faster. I'm booked through February already.
Remember when it felt like 100 million years between when you got out of school and when Christmas Day arrived? Like, it was literally painful. Now, I'll be 65 in the blink of an eye.
But, let's bring our focus back to right now.
After 2011, here are some of the biggest inspirations of my year:
1. Keiko Lynn
|sign me up for this dress.|
2. Jon Acuff
3. Sleeping At Last
|September cover of their Yearbook project|
|I want to fight crimes like Olivia Dunham|
5. Catalyst Conference
This year I went to Catalyst Conference for the first time with our Kairos team at work. I've heard good things about it, but going was beyond anything I could've expected. The theme this year was "Be Present" which was simple to say but tough to actually live out (so it inspired this blog). I got to hear from people like Blake Mycoskie (sounder of TOMS shoes), Andy Stanley (pastor of North Point Community Church in Atlanta) and Judah Smith (pastor of City Church in Seattle, WA)- people dreaming, imagining, doing and being a little ridiculous. It was nice to just be present. It was nice to hear from the big guy. It was nice to be surrounded by a lot of people trying to figure out the same things I am. And for that, Catalyst, I salute you. For your ferris wheel outside the conference center, I again salute you. For your kissing contest before the start of the conference, I demand reimbursement for the price of my breakfast.
So that is certainly not an exhaustive list, but definitely some milestones for me on Inspiration list. And know that I have a lot of things lined up for 2012. I'm Mayan, so it's my year.
And you? What were your big inspirers in 2011?
