Month's End

So here I am at the end of my first month of this project. And I think it’s going pretty well. I’m loving the excuse, or better, the need to write every day. I’m loving the feedback I’m getting. I’m loving what’s floating to the surface and onto the page. And I’m thrilled that I have 11 more months to do this.

Upon reflection of the last month, I’ve pushed my own writing envelope further than ever before. Mostly in the act of sharing it with you, but also in forcing myself to sit every day and put into words whatever the day holds. Whether that be through looking backwards at what the past has taught me or relating my uncertain, passionate, crazy and joyful days.

But what I really want to know is what you’d like to read about. Do you have certain topics you wish I’d write about? Would you like to see more pictures included in the posts, to illustrate, to make my words more tangible? Is there something I’ve touched on that you’d like to hear more of the story? Would you like to hear more postulations about the future?

I’m asking because I want to keep moving. I want to keep challenging myself. I figured that if I made it through my first month, being brave enough to share whatever was most important that day, that I could do, write, anything. So here I am, 31 days into this and I’m exhilarated, emboldened and excited to see what comes next.

On this journey I’ve embarked upon, I’m grateful for the opportunity to share it with you. I’m grateful for the ability to create more history that will ground me, keeping me real and immersed. How often do we give ourselves the chance to recreate ourselves? How often do we allow ourselves to be so utterly honest that we find ourselves flying?

So, bring on the requests dear readers! I’m looking forward to the next chapters of this path I’ve chosen. Working, loving, sharing, breathing, believing, writing. Getting to bring you along with me is an added bonus, for which I’m thoroughly grateful. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds.

The thrill and intrigue of your posts comes from the uniqueness of you. When wanting to get ideas from others, it seems that others are persuading your uniqueness. Just keep writing on your spontaneous ideas!
