“Do one thing every day that scares you.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
One of my intentions for 2014 is to follow Eleanor Roosevelt’s advice. I’m happy to share that day one has been a rip-roaring success! Following on the bootstraps of this blog and my one hit wonder Haiku for The Good Men Project, I was bitten by the “must write and submit on January 1 to make it real” bug. It only made sense…NOT, but nothing ventured, nothing gained right?
Well guess what? Not only did I write and submit an essay, it was accepted for publication in elephant journal! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited. Heck, I’m more than excited. I’m ecstatic. I feel on top of the world. It’s only one 929 word article, but it is a start and a nice progression from my previous 17 syllables.
I’m hopeful this is the first of many successful writing submissions this year, but regardless of what the future brings, I’ve had a fantastical first day of 2014.
