So I’ve not been perfect at this blogging daily attempt. But I am trying. I am trying to get every day done and if that means certain days I need to do two or three because I missed the day before, so be it. Because for the most part batching blog posts is a better way to be productive.

But I know that’s not the point of this 31-day challenge.

Still I try. Just like I try for myself and my son and my family.

I try to listen.

I try to think before I speak.

I try not to swear at the driver in front of me who fails to signal. Ugh… non-signalling is the worst!!

I try every day to stay centered and do something that helps my body and my mind and my heart.

And I think that’s all I can ask of myself or other people. That they tried.

I guess that’s what confounds me now about so many things in the news as it doesn’t seem many are trying. Not trying to see another way, another’s perspective. Trying to find a better solution. Trying their best and to be impeccable with their word. Trying to live out the Golden Rule.

But I know I cannot try for others. I can only control this little universe of mine.

So have a blessed Saturday and let’s try our best this coming week, shall we?

For October, I’m writing in conjunction with 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes and each post is written in five minutes flat.
