A DAILY BLOG POST? I’m not the type for that kind of thing, I thought, when the Postaday2011 challenge was getting underway in January 2011, though I’d been posting fairly regularly since 2006. But I chatter away (silently) to myself non-stop, when I’m not chattering away to others (vocally), so on 1st January you can guess what my Resolution was. Likely to be broken by the end of the week, I thought, but here I am, still typing up a daily post, six months – and a new keyboard – later!
Six things I’ve learned in six months: 1. That I enjoy writing even more than I ever thought I did. 2. That over the years I must surely have forgotten more things that were not recorded in writing than I could ever have believed possible. 3. That a daily record, even – on some days – just the tiniest snapshot of a record, has improved my memory and enriched my life beyond all imagining. 4. That reading others’ daily reflections has proved a great blessing. 5. That the evidence of my record suggests a life full of personal richness and blessing for which I am truly grateful. 6. That the first six months have engendered real enthusiasm and a sense of hopeful expectancy for the next.
