All The Things I Didn’t Blog About


Poem by Amy Turn Sharp

Today I recorded an episode of Elise’s podcast to wrap up this 100 Day Project. In it, I shared that I had a long list of blog posts to write and it never happened. This honestly feels like a really great, literal metaphor for my life. I have a lot of ideas and I don’t share them or let them come to fruition. Instead, I can get into some sort of routine à la Groundhog Day. So many books that I want to read, new restaurants that I want to try, languages that I want to speak, tv shows I should watch. I get sucked into the focused, tunnel vision shit and the next thing I know, 100 days pass.

But you know what I did during those 100 days? I ate whatever I wanted, I allowed myself joy and tears. I was present. I spent time with family and friends.

So, here’s to new beginnings. Tomorrow is the last day of this challenge and in a way, I learned a lot about myself. I’m glad it’s (almost) over but I’m glad I did it.

In case you were wondering, this was the list of posts I never wrote:

  1. Post-Candida Diet thoughts
  2. What I’ve learned from Strengthsfinder
  3. Do I need to be passionate about my job?
  4. Thrifting finds
  5. Creating a painting for over our fireplace
  6. Branded photography
  7. Finding Time For Myself (boundaries, one weekend day free)
  8. Do I Need/Have a Hobby?
  9. My Relationship with Painting
  10. The Responsibility as a Designer
  11. Turning down work is exhausting
  12. Asian Cultural Appropriation
  13. Celebrations
  14. Cookbook reviews
  15. Do Something Different
  16. Trying things from Pinterest

Maybe these will get created. Maybe not. I’ll always have tomorrow…
