I was honestly terrified of this writing challenge. When I signed up I found myself in a struggle with what portion of my mundane life I would share with “the world” <insert chime-like, echoey bong>. I was tempted to back out. I came up with a variety of legitimate reasons:
- my knee hurts so concentrating is difficult
- House of Cards is starting soon and I’ll be too distracted
- publishing your writing is haaaard and scary
- I have dinner to cook, books to read, the list of excuses is endless and ridiculous.
But I didn’t talk myself out of it. Instead, I decided to change the title of my blog because this writing, while published for all to see, is really just for me. I can do this. I can share a piece of my day and be at my sassiest or be at wit’s end-but in the end, it’s for me.
So, that’s how ended up here, writing my first SOL blog post while standing in line waiting to exercise my right to vote. Because life is about choices and I choose this challenge. Go me and GO YOU!
