So ends the “Blogmas challenge”. Actually, it ended Christmas Eve, but then I got on this alphabet roll, and here we are. At the zenith of the experience and experiment.

I could have ended on time, but it wouldn’t feel complete, and I have been enjoying the challenge.  

Has it happened to you? When you worry you won’t be able to finish what you are starting, then you get so into it you don’t want it to stop? Or you go too far with a project and it doesn’t have a nice ending point? So then you don’t eat to try again. Then things come together, and it feels really good. I know those concerns, I jumped in any way. And it worked out. You never know until you try.

What have you been making excuses for? Is it time to give it a go? Make a list of the hurdles and get about finding help getting over them. You don’t need to jump every one without help. There is a lot of help out there. Social media Is a tool. Anyone tearing you down shouldn’t be in your tool box. There are so many people giving out free, good advice. You have to go looking for the builders. Experts in your own town are looking for someone ready to learn from them. They are waiting to be asked. And, of course, there are books about any thing.

I am not great at blogging, but I am building to better. I hope you will come back for learning and encouragement. That is what my hope for this space is. Strengthening, training, and running the hurdles together 

Which is really funny, since I have never actually jumped a hurdle. No worries, we will laugh at the idea of it together too.

Happy New Year
