Two months ago, I accepted a challenge. A challenge to write 60 blog posts within 60 days. Yesterday marked day 60. And this is my 60th post since that time. It is just about 2 hours past the technical deadline, so I suppose I just missed it.
But does that matter to me? Not really. Yes, I am bummed I didn’t get the last 2 posts in on the final date, but guess what? I didn’t quit. When I was down by 8 posts just 2 days ago, even while juggling birthday party preparations for our daughter and balancing all our summer fun, I never gave up.
Once the deadline passed, I could have said “Oh well” and quit right there. But I didn’t because that’s not who I am. I’m staying up to hit “Publish” on number 60.
Am I glad I took on this challenge? You bet.
Have I learned anything from it? A whole lot. I have gotten a lot more practice. Practice in the technicalities as well as practice in just making time to sit down and share.
It has been a challenge. A challenge I was afraid to take on in the beginning. But a challenge I knew I needed.
I look forward to continuing to share my journey with you…but I’m looking forward to getting back to doing at my own at my own sometimes casual pace 😉
