I’ve been blogging for almost a year and I’m reflecting on how far I’ve come.
I was just rereading my second post, ever, about will power.
It was one of those pieces where you write about the thing you’re trying to figure out. I was trying to figure out will power. At the time, I was sure I lacked it.
This piece – did I mention it was only my second post?! -turned into a three part “series”, and it really did help me get a handle on will power.
And that, in turn, helped me build a blog that turned into a living in ten months.
Still, I cringe a little when I read it. The use of the word “frenemy”. The mother joke (who was I???). The attempt to be…who? Maybe a blithe and cute girl version of Steve Pavlina?
And just look at the title. Can you believe it????
And, to be totally honest, I’m exhausted and a bit broken tonight. The words have gone to sleep and they’re urging me to follow. Hence the time-travel through my archives…
How amazing is it that I have an archive, now?
How amazing is it that I get paid to write, now?
How amazing is it that so many of you are here and commenting and have my back?
It truly amazes me. Thank you so much.
