Anyone heard of this?
I hadn’t, but then again there is no way I could have finally heard about everything right? I mean imagine that.
Anyway, I got an email today about this and briefly looked into it and then hastily decided to jump on the bandwagon. Hopefully making this quick decision won’t come back to bite me in the butt.
Even though I allegedly have time to blog now, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with it. Too much to talk about and can’t figure out how to organize myself, my time and my thoughts into things that make sense. I normally like to spend a lot of time on posts, crafting them into little works of art that I am happy with. I’ve been thinking lately I need to just kind of “go with it” more and just get stuff out. I think this might be a good way to jump start that and really get the juices flowing.
Here is what I found when I Googled “what is NaBloPloMo”? <—-Click that for info. There you go, I saved you some time. And we all know time is $$$ (I take checks and VISA). Thanks.
The basic gist of it is….you post something every day during the month of November. Every Day. No back posting. Can be about anything really, but there are some prompt questions if on any particular day you don’t know what to write about. I don’t think I will really have that problem, but I do love answering questions so I might include them in the daily posts just cuz (I know thats not proper, just roll with it) I want to.
I am still planning on Seattle Sunday’s, Movie Mondays a few WIAW’s thrown in and of course the very exciting 23Paws for this month on the 23rd (Chloe’s birthday) still super excited to share her big news!
So that’s whats going on. A post every day of this month. I’m already tired just thinking about it. Kind of jazzed at the same time.
If you already roll your eyes and click delete when my post emails hit your inbox then this would be a good time to just “unsubscribe”.
Just keeping it real.
Question #1 listed on the prompts:
Tell us your favourite quotation and why
“Everything will be ok in the end, if its not ok, then its not the end.” ~Unknown
I still remember the first time I heard this quote. I was in an office with one of my besties, Amanda and I think this was on a magnet that she had. I love it because I feel like this is really how I have approached life for a long time. Anytime I am in a difficult situation or things just aren’t going well, I have always told myself “someday in the future this will be over, or not happening, or different”. And I look forward to the day when I won’t be feeling (sad, angry, disappointed, frustrated…) any more. Because I know that time is coming. May be the next day, may be a month from now. But it will come. Just as its not possible (or realistic) to live in a constant state of “happiness”, neither is it to live in a constant state of “everything is awful”. Tough times come and go, they ebb and flow, they teach us SO MUCH and help us grow.
And now I’m a poet.
