It’s hard to believe I am 30 days into my 365 day goal of blogging! It’s been eye-opening, liberating, empowering, frightening and amazing all at the same time. As I hit the one month mark today I’ve realized the most important piece of blogging is to stay focused on writing for yourself. Meaning, keep your eye on the prize and don’t be distracted by what is or is not happening around you. There may not be much encouragement, or even constant support. Many may read, few may comment, and you may have those that support you everyday but are reluctant to share that. It’s a world and a hobby that only others who love blogging just as much understand. As I journey on towards improving my personal knowledge of blogging best practices, fine tune dreams and stretch myself creatively I summarize the last 30 days into the following;
(1) No matter how wild, crazy or far-fetched something may seem. If you want it, go get it!
(2) What other people think of you (or your work) is underrated. Creativity is meant to be interpreted in millions of ways, shake off what you don’t like and keep the rest. =)
(3) Blogging is much different from writing down thoughts in your notebook at home. Ha!
(4) Having something “for you” is a wonderful way to continue spreading happiness and love to your family, friends and others who need you!
(5) 30 days just might be the habit-forming recipe? It drives me crazy when I am not in a position to log in and type away!
Well, on to the next 30 days! Thank you to all who’ve supported the journey thus far and welcoming all those who want to join in!
Is there anything worse than coming out from a meeting or lunch that ran late and having a parking ticket on your car? Well today, as I was parking, I noticed the meter maids lurking about on the street. I also noticed the car beside me either didn’t bother to pay parking (which is always a possibility) or he was in fact running late (it happens). Whether they paid parking or not didn’t matter to me and we have to take this attitude more often in life when opting to do a good deed. I paid for my parking, and I also dropped another 30 minutes into a perfect stranger’s meter. Again, whether the perfect stranger realizes their tardiness was covered doesn’t matter to me. I’d like to think I just reserved a small piece of good karma somewhere in the universe. Perhaps in the form of my very own perfect fairy day maker? Let’s face it, the meter maids are a lot faster than we are! We could all use a little help from time to time!
You too can be a Fairy Day Maker! It’s the little gestures that make a big difference.
