Yesterday I was so excited about the prospect of writing here every day for a month. Now I am at work and can think of nothing relevant. My concentration is scattered, vacillating between boredom and the various food and beverage needs of the restaurant’s guests. But I feel a commitment to my goal, in a way I have rarely been moved by writing. Writing has been a part of my identity since I was young, but was always relapsed to a secondary role -something to do when I ran out of excuses or when the emotional turmoil of my teenage years compelled me to my journal.
Now, however, I want to explore writing about myself for myself in a dedicated manner. And so, here I am with nothing to say but to affirm my goal and to solidify my habit of writing.
Additionally, a list of topics that I think I want to explore. I wrote this while at work, waiting for tables to order. I know it is ambitious and I might not find time for most items on the list, but it is aspirational and inspirational. And, because of the overlap of many of the topics, I think it is attainable, at least over the next few years.
