Yes, I completed it! I finished my very first National Blog Post Month challenge, the NaBloPoMo. I made it through thirty straight days of blogging successfully. I showed up every day with a new post, just like I promised at the beginning. It was definitely a good exercise for me. Like daily homework for my students. Even more.
“Life can be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” — Soren Kierkegaard
Two-thirds of the challenge I signed up for has been completed! In the midst of all I had to do and chose to do the last twenty days, there were times when I got to thinking – even just for a moment – about many things. What do I want to do in my days? What are my priorities? What personal relationships do I want to work on? How much time I want to devote to different activities, including writing of this blog?
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” — Albert Einstein
For me, reading is an essential and beloved activity. It has always been and it always will be. I used to read a lot as a kid, as a teenager often late into the night, as a college student on crowded streetcars and buses, juggling the book in one hand and holding on to the rail with the other. I still do – all of the above. My days don’t feel complete unless they are finished with reading.
