The End | Day 31

I did it!

I've written thirty-one posts for the month of October and it was most certainly a challenge.  Each week my urge to give up would increase a little more than the last.  Especially towards the end there when I was so close to finishing.  As I've mentioned before, I don't always finish things and I actually thought from the very beginning that this would be one of those things that I didn't finish.  I thought I'd make it a week at best.  But look at me, here at the finish line.  I feel quite proud!

A few takeaways:
  • Thinking about what to write every single day is tough.  It can be done, but it's tough.
  • If I really wanted to, I could write 2-4 post per week.  If I really wanted to.
  • I have the ability to encourage myself.  When I wanted to quit this challenge, I forced myself to write another post.  I need to apply this ability to many other areas in my life.
  • I've wondered how my audience views me.  I wonder if they think I'm overwhelmed or unhappy, a pessimist or complainer.  I hope I've just come across as real, content and human.
  • I've wanted to hone in on every little thing.  Be the best at everything.  Get everything done. 
    But, ultimately I've found that I need to stop being so hard on myself and extend myself some grace.  
  • Lastly, I thought a lot about how I spent my time as I went through this process. Time is valuable. Spend it wisely.  
I hope you've enjoyed this series.  I most certainly have.  
Yet, I'm thankful that it's over.
