#98 – I’m so close!!!!

To my goal that is!  

 

 

Back in July of last year, the kids and I watched a fun show that inspired us to do something 100 times.  Curly Cook and Joy Boy decided to draw 100 images and GingerSnap thought she would color 100 coloring pages.  And I decided to write 100 posts.  Well, here I am, only 3 posts away and I go and take a couple weeks off from the blog.

 

Sad but true!

 

Have you ever experienced this before?  You are so close to fulfilling a challenging goal, only to pull back and almost not finish it?  I think we do this because we are mixed with conflicting emotions.  I for one am struggling to find the motivation to keep this blog up.  I realized a few weeks back that not many people even read this blog, yet I am not keen on the idea of promoting it.  Why? I don’t know?

 

I guess I am feeling that I want my thoughts and feelings more private, not for the world to pick apart and criticize.  Maybe I am also thinking it is just TOO much to sit down and read one day?  But then again, what else will I do when my kids are raised?  At least if I blog, I can look back in time and remember the days that are now past and far from short term memory.  And maybe, just maybe, one of these blogs might help someone, some day? 

 

So, deciding to keep writing has been challenging.  I was so motivated to hit 100 posts that I made a goal to blog every day.  Now I don’t know how often I want to blog?  I also don’t know if I should continue “Throwback Thursdays?”  They are a lot of work but then again, when else will I write about the past?  Argh.  So much to think about.  I hope I can find something positive and inspiring to motivate me.   

 

In the meantime, THANK YOU for reading these posts.  I don’t know who you are, I choose not to, but for those who do read them, THANK YOU.  I hope they have helped you as much as they have helped me.

 

98 down, 2 more to go!!!!

 

Thanks for listening,

    HI WENDY, THIS IS YOUR OLD NEIGHBOR DIANE COBURN. I JUST WANTED TO SAY HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR BLOG. I REALLY MISS YOUR FAMILY AND IT IS FUN HEARING ABOUT YOUR ADVENTURES. I HAVE ALWAYS APPRECIATED YOUR HONESTY AND YOUR WILLINGNESS TO SHARE THE GOOD AND BAD TIMES. EVERYONE HAS THEIR UPS AND DOWNS. I THINK IT IS SO HELPFUL TO VOICE THOSE FEELINGS BECAUSE MORE PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO THEM THAN YOU THINK. YOU ARE AN AMZING PERSON. YOU THINK SO DEEPLY ABOUT THINGS AND ARE SO ENGAGED IN YOUR LIFE RATHER THAN JUST GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS. YOU MAKE ME WANT TO BE A BETTER PERSON. PLEASE KEEP BLOGGING. I LOOK FORWARD TO THEM.
