Celebrating Freedom: Day 10

Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginning’s End – Seneca

As this 10 day blog challenge draws to a close, I reflect back on my 9 prior posts. It’s hard to choose one favorite so I’ll choose 2: Finding My Tribe: Day 6 and Adventures at Starbucks: Day 8.

The reason those two in particular stand out in my mind is because I had the most fun writing them. I was a little irreverent in my delivery. And if nothing (or no one) else, I at least amused myself.

I’ll admit that there were days that I dreaded HAVING to write. But in all honesty, most days I actually looked forward to having something TO write. This challenge gave me a reason to write. A purpose. And although the assignments were to write about a prescribed topic, I had the freedom to write about them in my own voice. As twisted and unconventional as it may be at times.

Key Takeaways & The Big D

What this lesson has taught me, nay…reminded me, is that I love to write. And I love to be funny. And probably curse a little too much. And also say things others deem inappropriate.

It has also reinforced the notion I have to write whether I want to or not. Because it’s all about the BIG D. No. Not that big d. Although, that’s good, too. Like really, really good. No, the d I’m referring to is…

Discipline!

Discipline requires that you show up every day. Oddly enough, this has been quite a revelation for me. Having trained for marathons and triathlons, you would think that this knowledge would be commonplace for me. But for some reason, it’s been a real eye-opener. I can’t just be disciplined for this endeavor or for that. But all. the. freaking. time.

It has also taught me that my friends are growing tired of my randomly asking them shit like, “what three words would you use to describe me?” and “what would you say are my strengths?”

On the plus side, I’ve learned they kinda like me. Well, some of them, anyway. And that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
