31 Silver Linings – A Writing Challenge {Day 31}

It’s incredibly hard for me to believe that the writing challenge is coming to an end.  I decided to do it on a bit of a whim and I’d be lying if I told you I knew I’d make it through. When I commit to a person, I do my best to move heaven and earth to complete whatever I’ve said I will…but when it comes to being accountable to myself, I often fall down on the job.  I am the queen of excuses and justifications in that regard and though I had high hopes, there was a little bit of me that wasn’t entirely convinced I’d follow through.  Yet here we are – and I’ve written or designed something (Silver Linings Sundays) each and every day.

As I said earlier this week, each post was certainly not a masterpiece.  Some were better written or thought-through than others.  Some were well received by my readers, and yet often, that didn’t correspond with what I thought was my best writing. But when I revived the blog at the beginning of the year, struggling deeply to figure out what my theme was, who my audience was, what to write about…well, I decided that I’d just write for me – and if anyone came along for the ride, super.  To those who have, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It really means so much to me when you comment or share something I’ve written.  It reminds me that deep inside, the little girl who loved to write stories in her spare time, who got such a kick out of writing papers, who absolutely loved writing for the school paper, is still in there – and I’m eager to see what she wants to do next!
