Day 31 for SOL #15 busy life

It felt as though I struggled to be consistent with my writing.
I posted and commented almost every day.
Some posts were early, other near midnight and once after the bewitching hour.
I read lots of other amazing posts and thoughtful comments.
I struggled to make meaningful comments.
But the business of life sometimes got in the way.

People told me it's only a month, no big deal.
That was about staying on a 28 day cleanse.
I made the shakes in my hotel room during conferences.
I ordered approved food items when I had to eat out.
I logged miles walking at the conferences.
But life got in the way and I didn't complete a perfect 28 day cleanse.

Last year I accepted a challenge to Draw My Awesome Year.
Sometimes I struggled to journal and draw every day.
I didn't complete all the drawing assignments.
But I still learned so much about drawing and writing.
I have a colorful journal filled with memories of that year.
And this year I sorely miss the monthly guide to draw and journal my life.

I hope to continue writing a slice of my life.
I pay attention to my life.
I reflect about my life.
I appreciate the small things.
I look for nuances.
I am more present in my busy life.

  1. Every challenge has its ups and downs, and I think participating in any challenge makes us stronger. Hooray for writing this month!!

  2. Life does take precedent because otherwise what would you have to write about? It's been a great month and Tuesdays are just the right speed for a busy life.

    1. I'm going to try it. If I didn't, I would miss this writing group too much.

    1. Thank you so much! I think awareness of the importance of being present will nudge us.
