I’m slightly neglectful — I totally didn’t realize that my blogiversary had passed at all <hangs head in shame>. Granted, I had been under the weather since before the retreat, and the stupid virus just wanted to hang out with me after as well (I mean, I know I’m fun to hang out with and all, but I’m not fond of hanging out with icky viruses!) — hence the lack of blog posts for about two weeks after the retreat (coughing all night and not sleeping does not bode well for trying to string a few words together, trust me). I have no excuses since then….
But it wasn’t until my friend Kate posted this on her Facebook wall that I realized it had passed:
(thanks Kate! – You should check out her blog!)
So I started to write a blog post…. but never finished it until now. I’ve had some great ideas for posts… so watch for some in the near future. I know, you won’t believe it until you see it.
I remember when I first posted my blog I was talking to a good friend about it and he said “Knowing you like I do, your challenge will be to apply the philosophy of your first post to the blog”. He nailed it on the head. I struggle with the fact that I don’t necessarily have a focus, which then circles back to the whole “perfect” issue.It’s time to apply the ‘what the hell’ philosophy.
A while back I saw this card:
I bought it and have it in my room. It’s reminded me that taking chances is a good thing. I mean, that’s how I ended up buying a one month membership to a boxing gym — I said “what the hell”. So far it’s been good. I have a draft started…
So, here’s to ‘what the hell’.
Happy Blogiversary… better late than never.
