The Finish Line {31 days}

Can you see me waving my hands excitedly and jumping up and down?

I made it. I chose a topic, wrote about it for 31 days, and didn't give up. Some days, it was easy to write and push out a post. Other days, it was challenging and tedious.

But, my goal was to finish and to get back to writing more regularly here. I think that this practice--the discipline of writing daily--has reminded me that it's possible (even with a baby) to whittle away time for writing and creating.

I think that I've also learned more about myself and that I can write more bravely--even if (maybe even especially if) it exposes some of those not-so-good places of my life. If sharing bits of my life will encourage others and be life-giving, I want to be braver in it.

So, today, I'll leave you with the final list of all the posts. The most read ones were:
A Different To-do List, Stretched, Weary, An Equation for Rest, and Bedtime is Not a Team Sport. Some of my favorites are: Rush, I knew this place, and Unhampered Joy.

  1. Congratulations!! I was so stretched during these 31 days, too. Some days I literally didn't crank out a post until 10PM, but I did it! It was such a great challenge, and hooray that we finished!
