Thirty Posts In Thirty Days

Back on the 1st of November I said I was up for the challenge and this time around I am proud to say that I made it. Yes I did. For the first time in three years I met the NaBloPoMo challenge and actually blogged every single day in November. And while making it here has been rewarding and I have a sense of accomplishment, I am mentally exhausted. Yes exhausted.

Most days I love blogging. Sitting in front of the computer for a few minutes and jotting down whatever comes to mind is relaxing. It is an aerobic workout for my mind. Until it isn't that is. There were a few mornings this month when just the thought of having to write something was painful. Like going to the gym on those mornings when you'd rather just stay in bed. While you know it will be good for you and that you will feel better when you are done, it is simply the last thing you want to do. It would have been easier to not power up the laptop and instead focus on the bazillion other things that over fill my days. But even on those mornings I powered through and accomplished what I set out to do. (After all, if I skipped a day I'd have to wait an entire eleven months before I could get a "re-do").

So yes I did it. And now that I've met my goal I'm going to turn off the computer and focus on what the rest of the day has in store for me. At the moment that includes decorating the house for Christmas........maybe I should just write some more instead!
