Okay, maybe it’s an obvious title. Yes, I am running with the WordPress herd. This whole thing is new and I am learning just how easy it is to get off track. Or, if you are a glass half empty kind of thinker, just how hard it is to make blogging a part of your DNA. So, for all of you who are honest and find that life can be hard to take a day at a time, this is for you.
I made a commitment to complete the Blogging 101 exercise with y’all. Without burdening you too much, after a fun start and some good feedback, life was still happening (divorce, flu, etc…) and all of a sudden a week and half had gone by and guess what? That’s right, I failed.
To some that can sound harsh…I failed. But to me, failure is just another part of life. If I am not failing then I am not reaching, trying to do something I have never done, committing to Ingwaz or the actualization of my potential.
I hear too often the cliches that surround success and failure. Flash news break…. LIFE IS NOT A CLICHE! Embrace your experiences, use them to feel what happens and how it affects the way you think and act. If I will become that which I want to become, I must do things that are uncomfortable, that scare me and that may result in failing.
I know there are some who will say this is arrogant. You know what? It is. My life is too important and I have important work to do that will impact the world as others see and live within it, to not move forward even if I am scared. I spent a large part of my life living in quiet desperation and the result didn’t change anything for anyone. I’m done living in the background. I will have an impact.
To all my fellow Bloggin101’ers, don’t count me out. I have stumbled but have risen from my knees to start moving forward again. Thanks for being there.
