April 11th - 250 and countdown...
Yesterday I posted my 250th letter… so how is this all going? Are my goals being achieved?
I wanted to work on my writing skills – this continues to be a work in progress, but I am noticing improvement in vocabulary, grammar and storytelling. Sometimes I surprise myself with the satisfaction I feel from a written sentence or the complete letter.
I wanted to find insights – this I give highest grades. Though, ever so subtle, I allow an insight to show up in my writing quite often. Inside myself, some of the ones I have noticed and experienced there’s a significant impact on my continuous self-discovery. Questions answered. Doors open.
I wanted to be disciplined – this I am both happy and disappointed with. I vowed to honor my integrity and post every day. Then I go in spells where I don’t for a couple days, a few days, almost a week. But is it the daily task or the commitment to 365 letters? I choose the number and start making up for my skips.
Giving myself a C+, A- and D… admittedly, I am a tough evaluator, but these seem fair. As a mostly 'A' student, time to step it up in the last trimester countdown.
Merit-based rewarding delivers a mindset of giving and being our best.
Hmmm, making the grade…day 251!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
