In It

It’s January 18th and, according to WordPress, this is my 50th blog post. This is exciting because, when I started this blog a while back, I was really concerned about stalling out after a handful of posts. While I’ve certainly had my blogging dry spells, I’m proud that I haven’t completely abandoned this site all together.

But, I have to admit to having this fleeting thought:

Darn. Woulda been cool if my 50th post was a New Year’s Eve wrap-up.

You know exactly the kind of post I’m talking about because you likely read a dozen of them three weeks ago. I could have revisited last year’s New Year’s resolutions, talked about everything I learned in 2014 and then set goals and commitments for the coming year. And it would have been post 50, which is such a nice, fat, juicy number.

But, honestly, I don’t know where I would have started. And, 19 days later, I still don’t. The truth is that I’m so IN IT, that I just can’t step back far enough for that kind of reflection. I’m not winding down or gearing up. I hopped on a running treadmill a couple months ago and I am just trying to keep myself from slipping off the end of it.

He had it.
He had it.

But, it’s all good. This momentum feels good and right, and I think it’s fair if the particular rhythm of your life doesn’t match up with the calendar.

In the spirit of all that, I’m going to leave out a thoughtful conclusion to this post and jump back on the treadmill. (But, I’ll take a cue from George Gray and face forward.)

Question: Anyone else IN IT?

  1. Congratulations on your 50th post! I’m a fan of your blog and your writing in general. Those “New Year’s posts” are gimmicky (I can say that because I wrote one!), so good for you for getting on a new “treadmill” and overcoming the discomfort of doing so. Here’s to 2015!

    1. Thanks, lady. And don’t get me wrong – I love goals, resolutions and reflection. I love reading those posts (yours included!). Maybe I’ll feel ready to write one…in June?
