I’m participating again in the A to Z Blogging challenge for like the 4th or 5th time. I tend to do a broad theme but this year a theme jumped right out at me.
I Ain’t Dead Yet!
Lately I have been having a bad cause of Am-I-Too-Old-itis. Who has time for that nonsense? I started looking into people who completed their life goals later in life. Admittedly part of me is sad several of them were in their 30’s but on lists for people who made it later in life. From my side of the 40 fence, 30’s is still very young. I’m taking a look at various people mostly authors, artists and actors but throwing in a few unexpected and possibly unheard of accomplished people. I guess I’m supposed to be writing my blog for my readers but in this case I’m writing next month for me. I’m reminding myself I’m not dead yet. I still have plenty of time to write the novels rolling around in my head. I have a chance to perform on Broadway. I could walk away with the Oscar I’ve dreamed about since 5th grade when I watched the Oscars from my tiny farm house on the Kansas Prairie. First I have to write 26 posts in April but afterwards the world is my oyster. It’s not too late. I need to pound this into my stubborn head. How did other people get past their obstacles? What drove them? Why did they wait so long? Did they suffer the same issues of procrastination and self-doubt I do?
There you have it. My goal and theme for April. I hope it is as enlightening as I hope to discover. There tons of people joining in the challenge and it is a terrific way to find new blogs to enjoy. I’ve included the schedule in case you want to pop in into your online calendar and set alarms. I would hate for you to miss any of the fun.
