Life is unpredictable. Try to keep tabs on it, try to plan out each and every step, and you’re destined for failure. It might not happen immediately, and it may not even happen all at once, but eventually the threads of your plan will unravel unless you can grow, adapt and make good of the pitfalls that you’ll eventually face in your life.
In my life, as 2011 has progressed, it’s become admittedly harder and harder to keep tabs on the 2K11 24/7. With anything you do in life, there is a point where it will reach a critical mass — you can only study for so long; you can only work for so many hours in a day — and while I’ve yet to get to the point where I’ve blogged enough for it to take another path, but it’s definitely changed into something that’s less of a project and more of a responsibility. A responsibility that should not be easily shirked, as I’ve set an expectation for daily posts to my readers who check them out regularly.
So when I missed posting yesterday after a day filled with reunions, data migration and life changes, I knew that I had to get back into my groove.
Even so, I’ve learned much from blogging this year — I’ve learned that there are a great deal of us in need of an encouraging word or two to get us through the rough patches in life. I’ve learned that there can be answers to just about every problem that we come across if we look hard enough and keep persistent. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been taking blogging a little easy as of late. I’ve made it more than 2/3 of the year, written on just about every topic that comes to mind, and have gotten to a point where I finally feel like a strong sense of direction is starting to form.
I’ve also learned that there’s something to blogging about life improvement that I can’t quite put my finger on — something that brings people together, helps them better themselves, and makes the world better, bit by bit, person by person.
So with 84 days left in the year, I’m not missing another day. I’m going to get 84 quality posts out on 84 different topics, leading the way into a year of new goals, with its own new challenges!
Be seeing you one and all,
