If you’ve visited here for any length of time, then you know I rarely write to a plan. I tend to run a muck on the virtual page, so while I try to always point towards either resting, reflecting, or refilling, I don’t know that I always succeed. Sometimes I find it helpful to write to a specific topic, as I did last October when I wrote 31 days to Finding Freedom. This October, I plan to join in the 31 days writing project/initiative/link up/craziness and add my voice to the chorus.
I hope you’ll join me for 31 days of Encouragement for the Journey. I realize it’s a mouthful, and I worry it might sound a bit self-help-y, but seeing as I’m no Dr. Phil and people rarely ask for my advice, I think we’re safe. I’m a regular woman with everyday issues and I’m writing just as much to myself as I am to you. Our journeys will look different, but our destination is essentially the same. We want to live with honor and courage and more than a little hope. We want to smile at today and laugh at the days to come. And we want to step into eternity knowing we gave this life everything. Absolutely everything.
I hope you’ll consider joining me next Monday for the start of our 31 days together. If you’re taking part in the series as well, leave me a comment with your topic, as I’d love to hear what you have cooking. Unless you’re actually writing about cooking, of which I’m not a fan. I kid, I would love to hear about your topic, even if it makes me feel inferior in the kitchen.
In order to manage your expectations (which surely are low at this point-a mouthful of a topic that may or may not be self-help-y?), know that while I will be posting every day, some days it will be as simple as a photograph or a quote. I hope to have a guest post or two thrown in as well. We’ll see. I hope you will consider joining me on the journey.
