Five Months_Five Things

Gold Five Or 5 3d Number Closeup Representing Anniversary Or BirthdayToday marks the end of my 5th month of blogging.  Five months of life lessons, laughter and lunacy.

Coming up with an idea is easy, following through is hard

I knew this about myself going in but it’s even more real than I thought.

Planning stuff is fun.

I like to think about what needs to be done, do a little research on how to do it, gather the materials and then start the project.

When it gets challenging or inconvenient or boring I would rather move on to something new.  This time, however, I had to go and put it out there.  On the Internet, of all places. Told a few friends and family members that I was going to do a blog.  Me and my big mouth (or, more literally, my Apple computer).

The first day was scary, the next 152 were … still scary

One hundred and fifty three days of letting people know how crazy I really am can be intimidating. But I have thrown caution to the wind.

What’s the worst that can happen?  Oh, I know.

Family and friends can disown me.

That is highly unlikely since they knew me before this blogging thing and didn’t run away.

 I want people to read this blog but I’m hesitant to ask people to share it

It’s a weird thing.  I’m writing, hoping people will read and be touched or inspired or encouraged.  In other words I am attempting to be an encourager but still I hesitate.

Go figure.

There is a lot to be learned from others’ blogs even if I’m not particularly interested in the subject matter or if I disagree

It will shock you to discover everyone is not like me.

Not everyone holds correct opinions like I do. (Wink. Wink)

I can gain knowledge from people with whom I disagree.  There is even the off chance that I might actually change my opinion after giving careful thought.

I still think blogging is like making your own pizza.

Go ahead and click on the word blogging above to see what I mean.


Feel free to leave a comment about any or all of the following:

  • Follow through is often more difficult than beginning.
  • Does a process or project remain  somewhat frightening?
  • Are you hesitant to share your talents or gifts?
  • Are you able to learn from those who view life differently than you?
  • Do you think ANYTHING is like making your own pizza?  Besides making your own pizza.  That doesn’t count.

Thank you again for taking time out of your very busy schedule to read this blog.
