You can't live on a high forever. You can't spend your life on the mountaintop. It just doesn't work that way.
I was so pumped for 2010. I was ready to write my story. Then February hit. It's not that I've quit the things I started. I'm still reading, I'm still running, and I've made some personal additions to my life, but the excitement is gone. Life is back to just being life.
I have to remind myself that it's okay if life isn't a fantastic thrill every second of every day. There will be moments I'll capture and just know they're part of my story. But there are going to be parts of my life that wouldn't make the first edit. I might be too embarrassed, or the happening might just be too mundane.
But guess what, mundane happens. That's life. And it's ok. Yes, I'm telling myself, not you---whoever you are. But maybe you needed to be reminded, too. Maybe February hit you like it hit me.
But February didn't knock me down. And March is coming!
