“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.” – E.L. Doctorow
Today is 600 days of daily blogging. When I first got past the original thirty-day challenge I told myself to continue going for as long as I could. Little did I know that would mean over 600 days.
So much has happened within the past 600 days, including but not limited to:
- Living in four different houses and two different states
- Buying a car
- Starting a handful of new jobs
- Became an intense plant mom
- Started solo traveling
I know that I personally have grown a lot since I’ve started daily blogging. I hope you have as well too. I’m so happy that I started on this journey. Because of it I have many memories to look back on and a tremendous amount of documentation. Because of daily blogging, I can look back and see the change, I don’t have to guess what happened or trust my memory.
When I started I was so hesitant. I had analysis paralysis, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, and everything else that could be holding me back all within me. I was waiting for it to be perfect, but I eventually had to accept that it would never be perfect. This mindset started in my writing but it has traveled to the rest of my life and I couldn’t be more thankful for it.
