So, I had this idea.
What if I did one thing, every single day, for the month of November?
What if I wrote down my thoughts, regardless how deep, every day, for all to read?
What if I dropped fear on its head and chose to do something a little scary?
The answer? I have no idea. I really don’t know what will happen, if anything. I don’t know how well I’ll articulate everything that goes on inside of me. I’m uncertain of the way this will be received by those who read it.
But that’s ok. That’s not what it’s about.
It’s about saying yes to a desire, a voice inside that says, “You can be a little more alive.”
So that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to be a little more alive.
I’m going to write and write and write. For one whole month I will post something every day.
I am opening myself up to you, reader, whoever you are, and I’m letting you crawl inside my head. My hope is that by exposing myself in this way, becoming a little more vulnerable than I’m used to, and writing regardless of motivation, you will be inspired, challenged, and encouraged.
This excites me.
I want you and I to be a little more alive.
Why writing, and why social media? Because I can’t hide. Posting for all the world to see doesn’t allow me to quit. I want to do something visible because I want to be held accountable, and I want great incentive to force me to think deeply and to articulate my thoughts as clearly as possible. But more than anything, I want my words to speak life, to speak hope, and to inspire you to think and search and ask questions.
I encourage you to ask yourself the question I asked myself a few days ago: What if I did something nonstop, every single day, for the month of November? What would happen?
Maybe nothing. Maybe something incredible. I think it’s worth it.
If you feel inspired and choose to jump on board with Nonstop November, please comment with your thoughts and what you’re committing to doing. It doesn’t have to be huge. It’s simply saying yes to being a little more alive. I’d love to hear from you!
