Before this month began, I received a great challenge from my best friend. What was the challenge? To write on my blog every single day for a month. And it’s been great. I’m so glad I said yes. It’s really helped me get this website of mine off the ground. For a good few weeks, I was posting my daily entries before I even put on my makeup or ate breakfast or drove to work. But today… today was different. I’ve had my makeup on for hours. In fact, it’s almost time to take off my makeup and dive into bed. But I can’t. I won’t. Not until I post today’s entry.
Today, I have failed to write something deep and thought-provoking and…. blog-worthy. Today I am relying on the great revelations and opinions of a few people who’ve gone before me to fill up this empty space on my blog. Yes, today is quote day. I’ve never had a quote day. But I think I might have to start having one. It was fun. And the topic of today’s quote day? TRUTH. If you feel compelled, leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite.
