There is no real topic today other than 'Do what you wish with this day'. The suggestion was made to participate in Kendra's #stopselfhate initiative by writing a love letter to ourselves. Kendra is a wonderful advocate and I hope you will take a moment to check out her blog at VoiceInRecovery.com.
But while I am planing on taking her up on the challenge this month, today I want to reflect on the past 8 days of #hawmc. My New Year's Resolution had been to get back into blogging after I had kind of started to blog less and less at the end of last year. I did great at first but towards the end of my pregnancy and then with the addition of Mr K and getting back to work it became difficult again. #hawmc is affording me the option to not have to think for a while about what to blog about. That isn't to say that I'm not putting thought into what I am writing but at least I don't have to come up with an idea. And isn't the idea sometimes the hardest part of coming up with a blog post? At least for me it is.
It is fun to get out of the rhythm of doing nothing but 'normal' blog posts. I normally would not have thought about doing a haiku or acrostic. I don't think too many people have.
While i enjoy the change of pace I think what I am enjoying the most is reading everyone's posts. There are so many other health activists that I would never have known about had it not been for #hawmc. My favorite post so far has been the entry for Day 3 by Tales of SWAGing. It has it all, even Bacon cupcakes.
I have learned a lot reading other people's entries and I hope that other people have learned from me. There are still 21 challenges left and I can't wait to tackle them for myself and to learn more about other people.
