And Away I Go...

Life lessons come in many different shapes and sizes; when my friend Jan suggested I try blogging for 31 days in a row in the 2011 Blog-a-thon, I agreed. I have never been successful at blogging, finding time to write on a daily basis is tough enough. I cannot even successfully schedule a thirty minute walk on my treadmill, the idea of submitting a meaningful daily post seemed daunting to say the least. But I wanted to try.

I am not sure where I will go with each post. I have a feeling that “life lessons” may be an underlying theme as lately, I am experiencing many new revelations about life, on a daily basis.

In fact at times I feel like I am standing in front of a pitching machined with hundreds of different “balls” being thrown at me all at once and I am trying to handle each one, successfully, while simultaneously being pummeled by those that I miss.

In some ways, I think that is what life is like, solving little emergencies, problems, “opportunities” and life moments to the best of our ability; sometimes successfully and other times, not so much…the real importance is showing up and giving it your best shot.


  1. What a great start, Melissa!!! I am so excited for you and the next 31 days. I'll be praying for you, and anxious to laugh-and maybe cry- along side you! It's life, after all, right? Thanks for being such an inspiration to me, and I hope you have a fabulous bogging journey!!!

  2. Thanks Davi for your support. It is really a very exciting prospect. I am thankful for your prayers. You, too, are an inspiration to me. Let the race begin...

  3. You can do it! Yes you can! I am right there with you!
