Modifications to the 30-day challenge.

While I was sitting at the front desk today, I thought, 'Hey, some days are very busy, while others are not. Surely there will be days when I will not want to blog.' So, for everyone's sake, I hereby enact the following modification to my original goal: Instead of writing every day for 30 days, I am going to write 30 entries in 30 days. I hope that tomorrow I will have some food for thought. Before I go, however, I want to share two of my favorite quotations from Starbucks' conversation-starter initiative, "The Way I See It":

Childhood is a strange country. It’s a place you come from or go to – at least in your mind. For me it has an endless, spellbound something in it that feels remote. It’s like a little sealed-vault country of cake breath and grass stains where what you do instead of work is spin until you’re dizzy.

The most important thing in life is to stop saying “I wish” and start saying “I will.” Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities.
