While I was making a comment over at Loud Waterfall Photography, I got to thinking about the topic. The month of June has been a month of challenges for me, both personally and professionally.
I signed up to blog every day for 30 days.
I signed up for a 4 week course on writing for magazines.
I challenged myself to train for the Golden Olympics.
What am I thinking? With my current 5k time, I couldn’t meet the minimum requirement for an 80 year old, much less someone my own age. No disrespect intended to anyone in your 80’s; you inspire me.
I challenged myself to a 30 day AB workout… that I’ve yet to start…
And finally, I’ve challenged myself to earn more as a writer by sending out 30 query letters in 30 days with Mridu Khullar Relph.
My realization is that although these challenges are quite difficult to maintain, I don’t think I’ve ever felt more ALIVE!
In an article by Sophie Lizard at Be a Freelance Blogger, I found a quote that I’ve repeated often since reading her post.
