Dear 31 for 21 Blog Challenge,

By about this time of the month every time I do this, I’m drained.  You kick my butt every single year.  Not that we ever have a quiet month, but holy guacamole is October busy!!

The interesting thing about this part of the month is that while I’m limping toward the finish, I’m also freaking out a little on the inside about how I’m going to get it all in.  It’s a funny thing, this writing business.  The Type A in me sits down in late September and makes my list of topics… and then oh!  look!  wait!  no, that thing!

And I’m off track.

There are only 11 days left – and there are two already written and at least one more from John that he needs to write and the girls and my husband of course, but I’ve got a zillion others on my mind that I have to somehow fit in and like I said in the beginning, I’m not going to get them all.

That’s part of why I like you, Blog Challenge.  I love to write.  And you are like a little Personal Trainer for me, pushing me to get through and then then keeeeeep going.  I write because I think it’s so important to demystify our life for others.  But I also write because it’s good for my soul.  I’m allowed that one thing, aren’t I?  And when I stretch the writing muscle, I keep going.

So thank you, 31 for 21 Blog Challenge, for pushing me to pause and reflect, to center myself, and for giving me a chance to delve into some topics that are important to us.  Thanks for introducing me to so many other moms who write.  Their stories continue inspire ours.  I’m shaking my fist at you tonight, but kindly, because in truth, I am thankful that this Challenge exists to reignite my fire.

Best,

La Lay
