Well, I’m plunging in again to the 2017 Write 31 Days Challenge.
Friday night we went to a high school football game. At half-time we watched the marching band and dance team perform. One of our friends shared that she played the trumpet in marching band in high school. My sweet husband then proudly told our friends that I was on my high school’s dance team. Lest they be too impressed, I held to my value of authenticity and confessed that I was only on the team my senior year – AFTER trying out and getting CUT my freshman AND sophomore AND junior years.
They were at least impressed that I’m not a quitter (well, in some things).
Sharing that story reminded me that I do have the capacity for determination and perseverance within me, even though I can get discouraged by repeated failures. I wish I could succeed and soar the first time at everything, but I don’t.
That’s why I’m participating in Write 31 Days, EVEN THOUGH I tried to do the Write 31 challenge the past two years and did not follow through (ahem). I’m trying again. I’m not going to quit writing in life because I love to write and it’s important to me.
So please join me for my MESSY ME Makeover during the month of October!
