Note: NaBloPoMo participants are welcome to use the badge if they want. I have authorization to use the image, so I'm sure it's okay.
We made it! Where did the month go? Looking back, I must admit there were a few times when all I wanted to do was hurl my laptop out the window and throw my hands up in the air!
But despite being under very tight deadlines with my Italian translations, I always took a second to write a quick post.
...and you know what? It became easier as time went on. Actually, my favorite NaBloPoMo post "Domani" only took me 5 minutes to write. 1 very busy evening. 3 powerful images. 5 minutes writing from the heart.
NaBloPoMo taught me one thing: Despite my hectic schedule, there's no such thing as "I don't have time for..."
Do the math. There are 1440 minutes in a day. 15 minutes dedicated to learning a few vocabulary words of a new language, or reading a couple pages from a book, or taking a short walk, or writing down your thoughts means we still have 1425 minutes left in the day for the rest of the things that we "have" to do...
It starts out difficult. It gets easier. Then "making a little room" becomes second nature.
That's what I'll take from NaBloPoMo...
