I could get bogged down in the fact that I am still behind on #BLOG365. I could count the days I am actually behind (I really don’t know). I could beat myself up about the days I missed and the posts that weren’t as good as they could be.
But, I am not.
I am not going to do that because I am just going to be happy in the knowledge that this is my 200th post. It is a huge accomplishment considering work and family life, a job shift, and volunteer work.
I am not going to beat myself up because thousands of people have viewed my blogs and I have been able to share with people I don’t even know, as far away as Asia and Australia.
I am not going to worry about the fact that I am behind because my son, my 11 year-old, reads my blog. Almost every day. He sees that I have set a goal and worked through it. He reads what I am passionate about. He connects what I write to our daily life. And better yet, he is a blogger now.
I am not going to count the number of days I have missed because it really doesn’t matter. From the start this was about the process. It was about the reflection. It was about reaching a goal I set for myself. It was about growing as a professional and a writer. 200 days into and I am already #winning!
