Slice of Life- 27/31-Bummed and Ashamed

I can’t believe it…only four days away, and I missed my post.  And I feel like a real heel.  My friend lost her dog this evening, and I was consoling her.  I tried to post from her computer, but it wouldn’t work fast enough for me to complete my post.  Here this lady is, so upset, and at this point, all I can think about is that I missed my post.  What does that say about me?  Nothing good.  And what does one do when they have failed the challenge at this point?  Quit writing?  Write anyway?

Sorry for the venting…just bummed.

  1. Keep posting. In my opinion, you did write during the day you were awake. You were gathering ideas during the ordeal. Be encouraged. This experience is to get your ideas going, to play with words, to know your voice is heard. Bravo for you to help your friend in need AND still write something. Your day didn’t end until you posted. Keep writing!!! Your words matter!!!


  2. I think there’s only good things to say about you – you posted even though you were bummed. You put real relationships first, even if it was begrudgingly! I’m so proud of you, even though I don’t know you!!


  3. Just wanted to post again to you, in case you don’t post again today – to tell you how very much I’ve enjoyed your writing this March! I think you did an AWESOME job, and I hope you feel very proud, proud, proud!!!


    1. Thanks so much, Adrienne. The way this challenge ended really got to me. Every time I thought about it, it made my stomach ball up, and I teared up. I guess I was so frustrated that I had invested so much of my march to this and was not at all expecting to not finish. I couldn’t make myself write those last days or even read the post. I am trying to figure out what I have learned about myself in this process, because this really should not have affected me the way it did. I really appreciate all your supportive comments and encouragement and look forward to working with you again next year.


  4. I hope you didn’t get discouraged and kept on posting and will keep on writing. Sometimes we are called to do something else and be somewhere else. You were where you needed to be.
