31 Days: I Must Be Crazy
I've been toying with the idea of starting a new blog for roughly two years now. I actually did set everything up. But I kept it private. I was afraid...I was afraid that I had nothing to offer; that the world didn't need another blog because there were so many amazing ones already out there. I was afraid I would fail; that I wouldn't post enough and leave my followers hanging or that I wouldn't even have any followers.
So I might be crazy but here I am starting another blog. And just in case this wasn't test enough for my sanity, I'm starting with a 31 day challenge. I've joined with The Nester along with many other bloggers to write on a specific subject for the month of October.
I've choosen 31 Days of Intentional Living. What does that mean? Well I know it can mean very different things to all of us but what I'm sure of is that we all squander lots time in our daily lives. I don't want to live like that. Up until recently I said I didn't want to live like that but I didn't mean it. But recently I've had less time for squandering. Between my husband working nights, us choosing to cancel our cable, and many new hobbies and relationships, I've really had to stop and consider what matters most. I'm certain it's not tv shows and I'm convinced it has something to do with relationships. I'm convinced it has little to do with possesions and a lot to do with memories. I know it has nothing to do with society's definition of success and everything to do with eternal impact.
So here by the grace of God go I. This may be a complete bust or a lfe changing endeavor. But if nothing else the next 31 days will be a challenging and exciting adventure.
In the next post I'll be more specific about what the next 31 days will look like.
