Tomorrow is the last day of June which means that the Blog-A-Weekday challenge is wrapping up its fourth month. This is something that I’m really proud of.
It is no secret that late in 2007 I was mired in the murky swamp of self-doubt. And like the mud that splattered my face as I tried to dislodge my gum-booted feet, personal insults also boomeranged back at me. One of the more frequent accusations claimed that I lost interest with everything once the novelty wore off.
Since then, this fear has plagued me. How will I ever have any lasting, lucrative jobs or interests?
But I am slowly becoming someone who sticks with something once the novelty has worn off. The Blogathon is a testament to that. I no longer have to equate the fade of newness with the advent of a stalemate.
Opportunities can arise when the grey area widens.
