beautifully different (#reverb10)

Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. Use the end of your year as an opportunity to reflect on what's happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10 - and the 31 prompts our authors have created for you - you'll have support on your journey.

Prompt: Beautifully different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different-you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful

I am a 5’10” vegetarian, pseudo hippie with naturally curly hair and size 11 shoe who laughs really loud, has furbabies instead of real babies, drives a scooter to work when weather permits, and wears red shoes whenever possible. I can perform a mean time step (thanks to 20 years of dance class) and say “I love you” in six languages, one of which being sign language which I am fluent (but a bit rusty).

This picture displays my big feet, curly hair, and my 2 cats and 1 dog all on the couch with me. You can also see a picture of me at age 2 with my curly fro in the background.

I am sure my mother would have a ton to add about how I am different.  She doesn't really understand where I came from.  If I only had a dollar for every time I heard her say, "Nat, where did you come from?  Whose daughter are you?"


  1. Nat, you ARE my beautiful daughter with a heart of gold. Never asking for anything, but always giving freely! Yes, you are our "love child" conceived in San Francisco! I love you so much that I copy everything that you do (haha)! xox

  2. Beautiful, Natalie. Thanks for showing me what my blog post *should* have been :).

  3. All kinds of awesome, there.
