Looks like we made it! Congratulations to everyone who has taken on this true challenge to blog and share for 31 days.
The last day always reminds me of the last day of camp or school. Goodbyes in the air and promises to keep in touch. The end of a chapter and the start of a new one.
Personally, the challenge WAS challenging for me this year. The start of March collides with a few thingsI coordinate and made the first few days stressful. Early in the month I received some news that was upsetting but nothing I could blog about which also was hard. Navigating that while preparing for my daughter's birthday, then completing report cards all made the month a difficult one for for me for my best writing and sharing. I did not get to read so many posts I wanted to.. I plan to circle back and try to comment more even when the challenge ends.
For the first time in 6 years, I missed two days of blogging this month. But instead of focusing on that failure, I will celebrate writing for 29 days in a hard season. Life isn't perfect and I'm not perfect. I did my best and for that I am proud. I'm hopeful next year I can write more eloquently and visit more blogs to read and comment.
I hope you are proud of your collection of writing, for showing up on the hard days or coming back in if you couldn't show up. I hope you found community here and friends. I hope you come back on Tuesdays- weekly blogging is cake after daily blogging!
I also hope you find rest and new hobbies and time to explore something new now that our monthly writing challenge comes to an end.
Until next time....
