commitment, perseverance, writing, blogging, the race

A Short Look at a Long Race

Day 10.

Tenth article in a row, out of an eight-week challenge to write one every day.

Tired. Hit a wall this morning for sure.

I have so many ideas but squeezing them out of the brain-housing group and onto the page is a bit tougher this morning than the last week.

I actually wrote a piece this morning that took most of my time but decided to bleed here a lil instead. The first piece just isn’t flowing like it is between my ears so I figured I’d write this for now.

If you take anything away from this short, disjointed article today, it’s this…

Starting the race is always fun. It’s exciting. People, or person, or maybe just yourself, is cheering you on as you blast from the starting blocks.

Then reality sets in and the work takes effort and pain and sweat and commitment, and I think I might be in tears soon.

But, there’s a finish line ahead, and that’s what counts. Right?

And…at the end of today, we’ve put one foot in the front of the other and kept going.
