Showing Up

I began 2020 intending to write every day.

On the first Friday (…yesterday,) I told myself, “Maybe just Monday through Thursday.” Weekends are unpredictable. My kids zap my energy. I’d rather indulge in leisure to rest and recover.

I justified not showing up.

This has been a challenge for me year after year. Showing up, and showing up consistently over time.

So, here I am on Saturday, showing up. I’ll write twice today, and maybe even twice tomorrow.

At the end of 2020, I’m hoping this blog will be a testament to progress.
