A year ago today I put up my first blog post. It was called, accurately, “The Rookie’s First Post.”
Since then Life on Clemson Road has taken a number of turns. Some good, some bad.
The theme for 2012 had been land the plane, but instead of buckling down and tying up loose ends, I ripped life out at the seams and sewed it up in another place.
Like everything I ever experience, I have learned from this journey. Here are some of the lessons from this year we spent beyond the rainbow:
I don’t need everyone in the universe to read my blog. I love those of you who do!
I have to write. No one will do it for me.
I have something of value to say.
I cannot make other people want the life I want.
I cannot expect anyone else to work as hard as I will to be better than I am.
I have to go easy on myself sometimes. And take myself less seriously.
Life does not bring one challenge at a time. They arrive in batches.
