Goals made and met!! That is exactly what I am grateful for as I write this post today! I have always been a goal oriented person. I think of an idea. Get a vison of what I want to see happen in my head and set the goal(s) that need to be met. Fortunately, I have been mostly successful with those goals I have set. This one, of writing every single day for thirty days straight, weekends and holidays included, was a bit of a challenge.
First of all, writing every single day proved to be daunting for me . . . .I think because I just hadn’t made it part of my daily routine since I started this blog. Also because although I am so very grateful for so many things, some are personal and I didn’t have the desire to share them on the internet so it was a bit of a challenge some days to think of something I could write here.
Second, I was hoping when I started this challenge, to improve my writing. Quite honestly, I don’t think that was achieved. I take a good amount of time to think through the posts I write and get my thoughts just right and edit them and do everything I can do to make it a good experience for all, from start to finish. There were plenty of days I found myself more panicked about meeting the midnight deadline than writing a quality post.
One of the things I do feel successful at accomplishing is attaining more readers and followers. I have met some really great people out there in the blogging world! Some have a great sense of humor in their writing, some share the same outlook on life as me, and many give me multiple things to think about as I move forward in this world. Thank you to all!
So my first #NaBloPoMo has come to an end. My primary goal of taking on this challenge was met. Some of the smaller hopes I had for myself, not so much, but overall, this whole experience was a win in my books! And today, I am most grateful for the ability to set goals for myself and to meet them, both here and in other aspects of my life.
