365 Letters to Myself
October 24th, 100 and counting...
Letter 100… A milestone, right?! How do I gage the ‘experiment’, the ‘exercise’? I am encouraged but not satisfied. I know I can do better…but I am trying to celebrate the getting to this number, realizing my writing (grammar) might show small signs of improving. I like the accountability of saying things out loud-because I will do them. I embrace the insights some letters bring up. And it’s about the discipline, the commitment to post daily (other than a few slips).
I do worry how I sound even talking to myself. I am concerned about repeating myself. I want to live up to an image I would like to portray, be associated with – that at the very least is authentic, has integrity, is kind, empathetic, interesting, strong, inspiring – not for my ego, but to make a difference…to write words that matter. So that I may discover, is there a book to write, as has been suggested and something I wrote on my ‘lists’ decades ago? I can’t answer that yet – I haven’t convinced myself I have found the best, truest voice. Good thing I am only at 100 with 265 to go!!
Hmmm, 265 to go…day 100!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
