If I post this (don’t want to tempt fate!) I will have done something unique and amazing. I will have done battle with my inertia demon that doesn’t let me start/do/finish many, many, many tasks – even pleasurable ones. And every day, I won a small victory – I wrote a post based on the #HAWMC prompts for 30 days straight (with the occasional one a day late).
This demon likes to overwhelm me, make me anxious and self-defeatist. He won’t let me come “unstuck,” and has made sure that I haven’t followed through with commitments, ideas, challenges, crafts, ordinary daily tasks, important projects. In other words, this demon doesn’t like feelings of accomplishment, achievement, pride, satisfaction, movement forward. I battle him every day, usually lose.
However, my small victories add up to something huge. I did it!!!!! What ever sword and shield I wielded had some magical metal. I’m sitting here, at the computer, smiling. That doesn’t happen all that often. Neither does the empowerment!
Thanks for another #HAWMC. Thanks for helping me move forward. I think my toes are now emerging from the sticky goop the demon has planted my feet in.
& by the way, my favorite prompt: this one as it marks (hopefully) 30 days of achievement, the first commitment I’ve completed in a very long time.
