the be(thoughts)tween

I'm over halfway through this month of nonstop blogging. That's what posting everyday feels like to me. Nonstop. When I began the month, I had ideas teeming in my brain. Like a spring overflowing. About 2 weeks through the challenge of daily blogging, the spring started drying up.

Oh no! I began to feel anxious. Then I realized the title of my blog was what it was all about. Just my thoughts.

But would my thoughts be enough? Then the second realization hit. My thoughts are as valid as anyone else's. When that thought hit my mind, it had a strangely calming affect.

Ok, I thought to myself. I can do this. Because I had seriously considered giving up. Twice before I have attempted a daily blogging challenge. And twice before I had stopped when life got busy.

Well, guess what? Life will always be busy for me. So if I am going to complete this month's challenge, I have to just move on through it.

That is what I intend to do. Move right on through it. My parents didn't raise a quitter. They taught me that anything worth doing is worth doing well, and I believe the truth of those words.

I hope you will hang in there with me. Allow me to share my thoughts with you. And share yours with me.
