31 Days

This October, I’m going to get in the habit of blogging by joining bloggers (including one of my favorite women in the world) in the 31 Days Writing Challenge.  Choose a theme.  Write every day.

31 ThingsWhy this theme?  Because, like any other human, I’m always learning lessons that at some point I haven’t learned yet, and I often wonder what my life would be like if I could go back and tell my younger self what I know now.

My definition of “younger” here is any age that’s younger than I am in the moment I’m writing. So if one day this month I want to say something to myself from the day before, I will. There are no rules, people! Here we go…

Day 1: Trust Your Inspiration
Day 2: You’re Going to Be Single When You’re 40…And It’s Not So Bad
Day 3: Stop Procrastinating!
Day 4: Sometimes You Have to Take a Day Off

Day 6: It’s Okay to Say No to a Second Date
