The Big 5 0

This post marks the 50th daily rant of a Stoic.

I don’t know what amazes me more – the fact that I have accomplished writing 50 blog posts in 50 days or the fact that 50 days have already gone by since I undertook this challenge.

I have to admit, when I impulsively made this new year’s resolution 50 days ago, I didn’t fully grasp just how much of commitment this would entail.

Between raising a family, rebuilding a business and learning the law, the last thing I needed was an additional daily task.

Believe me.

Little did I realize just how therapeutic “biting off more than I can chew” could actually be.

The sense of accomplishment is empowering. Now that I’ve made it to 50, I know I can make it 365. Every day I am just one blog post closer to feeling like I can conquer anything.

Since I was a child I’ve been deriving pleasure from capturing a day’s thought on page. But having the chance to share these musings with my kids takes that joy to an entirely new level.

This blog is not just a challenge I unwittingly agreed to accept. It is a daily reminder of how fast time moves and how precious the moments truly are.

50 down – only 315 more to go…
