Slice of Life #4
Ok. It happened. I was not naïve thinking that I would come to this Challenge and just be able to be successful. No, it was Friday and I did.not.blog. It was Friday, I came home actually looking forward to writing about my day and it did not happen. Every day I had felt a sense of accomplishment for being brave each night and blogging about things that I usually do not say. But this morning, even my husband asked what I blogged about and I had to say it. I did not blog. I did not write about anything. HE even seemed disappointed, “so you broke the trend you had going already,” Yes. I know the how a habit is formed, you make whatever it is a ritual, rain or shine, day, or night, you just have to write. But I did not. It reminded me of how disappointed I feel when I do not follow through, and instead of coming back more determined to continue, it does completely the opposite. It makes me feel like there is no way I can keep going. What is different about the SOL challenge, is that it has become my little corner in the blogosphere. I really appreciate those of you that read my words. It has given me the liberty to play with words, to turn small moments in my life and turn it into a story. I read a quote recently that stated that we are made up of stories. we look for those around us that share similar experiences that are brave enough to share. I will keep writing.
