Happy November 1st, or Rabbit Rabbit as some would say at the beginning of each month!
For the past month or so I have been receiving a daily blog post in my inbox by the incomparable Seth Godin. Every single morning, when it comes time to check my email, his is one of the first that I go to. Sometimes they are very practical, sometimes they are beautifully deep and sometimes they are simply amusing. I look forward to it every day and it begins my daily information intake with something that often brings out inspiration and thought.
One of his latest blogs was challenging those of us who have our own, to post every single day for a few months. He was actually talking about getting to 1,000 posts, which would take just under two years and how it is a habit that produces magic. He says "even if no one reads your blog, the act of writing it is clarifying, motivating and (eventually) fun."
Another friend of mine, fellow yoga teacher and awesome social media content provider Laurel Beversdorf also recently spoke about how for the past year, she has made a commitment to post every single day. In that time she has seen incredible results in regards to her business, her teaching and mostly in her connection and interaction with people through the world wide web! Seriously, you should go follow her if you are into interdisciplinary movement, yoga with resistance bands and amazing badass women who lift weights up to and past 40 weeks of being pregnant!
So where am I going with all of this? I am sure you can already tell. While I am not quite ready to commit to posting every day for the next year, or aiming my way to 1,000 I am ready to challenge myself to post a blog post every single day for the month of November. I am terrified that after a week I will have nothing to say or lost interest and get bored which really just means that I am afraid to challenge myself because I could fail. And I could. However I have been in a consistent practice lately of really challenging myself to be specific and actionable with goals that I set, so I am going to do it anyways. For the month of November, I will be blogging every single day.
What will you see?
- Essential Oils
- Daily practices, triumphs and struggles.
Basically, Me and things surrounding my business that I am working every single day to build and grow. I am excited and I am nervous, but I am doing it.
I would love for you to join in as one of my primary reasons for doing this is to actually showcase the positive power that social media brings. IF we choose for it to be so, it can actually connect us rather than isolate us. It has to be real, it has to be authentic and it has to be consistent. So here it goes. Day 1, done. See you tomorrow!
