Seeing things through

The table was set, and so I sat.
A confession: today's post exists solely because of NaBloPoMo. I have a great post scheduled for tomorrow, but didn't manage to schedule something for today. And then, the day happened. Life happened. (A migraine happened.) I spent a lovely five hours having a monthly dinner with very dear friends, after a slightly-less-lovely three hours grocery shopping (blissfully alone). I am, if I be frank, quite ready for bed.

Except, there's NaBloPoMo. And I made a commitment. There're no direct consequences for failing to follow through. Not a single one, not one drop less income, not a smidgen less chance of booking a client.

There's just me. And a commitment. And a desire to see things through.

I make mistakes sometimes, miss deadlines, miss opportunities. I'm human, it happens. But this? Seeing something through, for no reason other than I said I would, and I wish to? It's a bit silly. You could call me a bit stubborn. But I'm proud of it, too, somewhat secretly, slyly. It's what makes me me, Arwyn. I show up, even when I'm not entirely sure what to say, even when there's not much stopping me from slinking away.

I said I would. And so I'm here. That's reason enough.

  1. It becomes a chain reaction that can spread far from the initial problem spot. If pain is resolved promptly, muscles relax. If pain persists, muscles can become habitually tight. This also goes for tendons and ligaments, if they are too tight, they could be perpetually tightened and be painful. 부천출장안마
