Flying the Coop

Another chapter, a new adventure…

One hundred posts!

It’s weird to look back on the past one hundred days, but that’s what I’ve found myself doing over the past week. Why have I been doing that? Well, as the title suggests, today marks the one hundredth post in my daily blogging project. It’s crazy that amount of time has passed already! So much has changed over that time.

I’ve been thinking of what to write in this post for the past week and I still don’t know what to do. How about we do a quick evaluation of my progress? Kinda like a report card or something.

Note to self: Don’t be too hard on yourself!

Have I met my goal?

I started this project for several reasons, and one of them was to capture my day-to-day adventures so I can have a written record of what I’ve been up to. While I have posted something every day, I haven’t been too insightful or detailed. But I think that I have done a fairly good job of being creative. That was one of the points that I outlined back in May. I wanted this to be a creative outlet as well as a journal, and while there’s always room for improvement, I think that has been accomplished.

Writing every day has been such a weird exercise, but it’s a fun challenge! So yes, I have met the goal thus far.

I forgot something.

When I reread my first post from May 15, I was reminded that I had created a list of prompts for the days on which I don’t have something to write about. In fact, I haven’t utilized any of the tools that I set up to help on my bad days. Oh well! There’s been a new post every day regardless of that, which is a win! Moving forward, I’ll keep these tools in mind.

Anything else?

I’ve been wanting to write a daily blog for a few years now, but I hadn’t done it until this year. Why? I’m not sure. Probably because I didn’t think that I was “ready” or something. Yanno? So for me, the larger lesson here is if I want to do something, I should… just do it! It’s led to this semi-big accomplishment. It’s something that I sometimes struggle with, especially when I’m lacking energy and creative inspiration. Sometimes it’s good to focus on being sick or preparing or whatever, but eventually action needs to happen. I’ve also learned a lot of other little things, but that’s my main takeaway for today.


Let’s wrap this up. I need to get to bed soon! 😴 I hope that you’ve enjoyed my blog so far or gotten something out of it. I haven’t shared it with many people, but for those of you who have kept up reading what I write… thank you! I really appreciate the support and all of the comments that have been left. It’s really been a fun project for me, and I hope that it continues!

Here’s to the next one hundred days of blogging! 😄

Sweet dreams, my friends.
