For those of you who don't read a lot of blogs or don't blog yourself, that stands for National Blog Posting Month. The deal is that you post a blog post every day for the month of November. I did this a while back - when I was blogging at Thoughts of the Mama (the blog I abandoned before starting this one). I'm not sure I'm up to the commitment this time, though. I have so much more on my plate these days than I did back then.
I did, however, run across 30 Days of Truth while reading my FeedSquares this morning. I first saw it via the Crayon Wrangler who got it from Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy - which is also on my RSS list. So...I thought maybe I'd give it a try. I read the questions and there are some really fun ones...and some I'm a little nervous about...but I'm gonna give it a shot.
Here are the questions:
Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.
Day 2: Something you love about yourself.
Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 4: Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 5: Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 7: Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 8: Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 9: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12: Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14: A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15: Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16: Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18: Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19: What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20: Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21: (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22: Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23: Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24: Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25: The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26: Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27: What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28: What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29: Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30: A letter to yourself: tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself
Now - I'm not officially doing NaBloPoMo, but I'm still hoping to post every day in November!
So ~ here is Day 1 of my 30 Days of Truth -
Something You Hate About Yourself -
Truth, right? I hate that I'm not good at keeping in touch with my friends.
I know what you are going to say...it's understandable because I'm so busy with the kids and work and the house but the truth of the matter is that a lot of time I just don't make it enough of a priority and then I get nervous about trying to reconnect. There are times when the excuse is valid, but often I just put connecting with my friends on the back burner. I forget because it isn't something that I ever feel like I should spend my time doing when the dishes in the sink need put into the dishwasher and the laundry needs switched. I find it hard to pick up the phone because the kids are always screaming and when they are finally asleep, I just want to collapse and not think of anything. I'm not putting enough of an effort into my friends and I've lost a lot of friends because of that...and I hate that about myself.
I'd love to hear what you hate about yourself - make me feel a little better about myself! hehehe
