Z is for Zeal

Well, folks, it’s all over except for the shouting! This is it. I don’t know if I would have made it without the strong encouragement of my friends, especially my online friends.

I do have passion, I have that in spades. It’s just been a really difficult last couple of weeks. I’ve been going through a depression, and it’s been affecting my work, my friendships, everything I’m about. It’s forced me to dig deep on some reserve I never knew I had in order to finish this commitment.

It’s not just about the shiny, shiny blog badge, either (although I’m always up for shiny, shiny things 😉 ). It’s about completion. It’s about finishing what I start. Last year I completed NaNoWriMo for the first time in a long time and that felt great. This feels a lot like that.

What’s your passion? What are you committed to and what’s import to finish today? Don’t wait another moment. The feeling’s indescribable.

  1. I’m so proud of you for finishing. You pressed on when the easy thing would have been to give up. Good for you!


    • (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))) Thanks!! I wanted to quit near the end, honestly! I know I can tell you that and you won’t think I’m a total jerk. .. I mean, ONE blog post a day, and it was that hard?? But it was….this depression is crippling me…and when Michael stole my meds yet again, because I left my lockbox open one time…I felt SO stupid and SO po’d…still haven’t gotten that refilled, because I needed the doctor’s authorization, and it takes 24 hours for the insurance to approve it…so I’m going through a little withdrawal. Sleeping lots. Very unmotivated…:(


      • Hugs, yes, very difficult to be productive under those circumstances. And doing *anything* every day is difficult, whether it’s running or sticking to healthy food or writing or…whatever it is. There’s the temptation to just sleep in instead, even for people who aren’t fighting medication and family issues.

        I’d be depressed too if I had to protect myself from family members. Egads!


  2. So glad you decided to finish the challenge. Zeal has been a popular word today. Grin. I didn’t always comment, but I appreciated your entries. Good job!


    • I’m glad I decided to finish too, Jean, and you were a big part of the reason why!! I would imagine zeal has been a very popular word today! *grin* I appreciated your entries as well, though I didn’t get always comment. It has been a good stretch. And fun too! 😀


Lay it on me!
