For several years, I’ve read The Nesting Place blog. Not all of The Nester’s posts apply to me – and those I’ve felt free to mark as read and move on.
Others stand out. Stories of changing, growing, learning and adapting. Lessons in forgiveness, starting over and coming to terms with what is.
And one thing that she’s done for several years is to challenge fellow readers to participate in a 31 Day series.
Quite simply, it’s 31 days of writing about whatever you want to write about.
Challenging myself to focused thinking and directed writing seemed a good idea to me. Good enough to put on my 101 list. And good enough to make this year the year I participate.
Beginning tomorrow morning, I’m writing about Change.
I don’t intend to write a novel every day – just thoughts that have come to me over the last near-decade of change in my life (and massive change within the last year+).
If it doesn’t relate to you, feel free to mark each post as “read” and move on. Otherwise, I hope a little of what I’ve learned will mean something to you.
Perhaps, that it might even help you as you go through change.
Perhaps, that it might even change you in the process.
