The Power of Determination

99 days ago, I challenged myself to start a daily blog. Had I foreseen what a commitment it would be, I never would have done it.

While I admit that it has been cathartic, I’ve been kicking myself every day since I undertook this little pet project.

It is not so easy to find something to write about that is worth reading. Often, when I am at a loss for words, I get into my car, turn on the radio and drive around aimlessly in a desperate hunt for some kernel of inspiration. Sometimes I find it. Other times I come up short.

Regardless, I force myself to type.

Truth be told, I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t feel like walking away, reneging on this silly promise to myself and just deleting this entire blog.

But, I never do.

It is just a meaningless blog. Yet, I can’t bring myself to quit.

This marks my one hundredth post. I never imagined that I’d make it to 100. I didn’t even believe I would have made it to 25.

But, here I am.

Exhausted. Frustrated. Annoyed. Unwavering.

Never underestimate the power of determination.
