Take a Deep Breath [Blog-a-log-a-ding-dong! Day thank-God-it's-over]

Ahhh...the sweet smell of victory. That or the odor of the mango chicken sausage we had for dinner has permeated every fiber in the house. Either way, I stand triumphant! I have done the impossible! Ok...the improbable. Alright...the not likely. How about the not-such-a-big-deal-but-good-for-me-anyways? 

As you recall [and since you probably don't, click here] one week ago tonight I set myself the audaciously spectacular goal of posting every day for one week. And I have. I'm proud of myself and I feel great. And I'm NEVER DOING IT AGAIN!! 

That was way too much pressure and worry. It was like an itch in the middle of my brain that I couldn't scratch all day long because I had to remember to post. It actually took some of the fun out of blogging for me, and I need to hold on to the fun right now. I've got a lot going on now, mostly on the inside...lots of questions that need answering, lots of feelings I wish weren't there, dark moods I'd rather not be in. Blogging has been a breath of fresh air...no...more like pure oxygen. Oxygen is good...except if there's a lit flame...then there's explosions, and no more oxygen. Pushing myself to blog everyday rather than letting it flow naturally was like thumbing the Zippo wheel.

So here's celebrating this small victory. And here's hoping each of you have your own tank of oxygen somewhere. Also thanks to Wonder-Rachel over at My Crazy Life for the Blog-a-log-a-ding-dong title; I was truly drawing a blank for this one.

See ya soon.

You did good! I've managed ONE blog post this month. One PSEUDO-blog post even. Good job on making the goal! I hope I can get close to my goal!
