I challenged myself to write a post every day in November as part of National Blog Posting Month 2015. Well, I certainly wrote more posts than I thought I would, but I didn’t quite manage to post every day. I managed 22 posts out of a possible 30 :-s If you posted every day, kudos to you my friend!!! It isn’t easy. The thanksgiving holiday and travelling to Europe for work has limited my success in posting every day/ The days I didn’t blog were the days I yearned to write; just had little physical time to sit down and write it. I got withdrawal symptoms when I didn’t write. And I still have a long list of things I want to write about. Fortunately, I never experienced writers block, I always had something to talk about. Which is surprising, because I am not much of a big talker in real life!
I have written about some things that perhaps have given you more insight to my ways of thinking – an insight to the inner Dani! If you are still here reading – Thank you for sticking with me!!!!
I have written about infertility related issues, and explored some broader topics about becoming a parent. I have written about things that have bothered me and simply writing about them has helped me get over them.
I have also killed some time; time until our next cycle of IVF cycle. I now have a new countdown – Christmas!!!! And I even have an amazing 3D Christmas Tree advent calendar that my granny gave me which will help. I bought Chris a Birthday present – a daily lesson of couple’s massage for a month. Basically he gets to be the stooge whilst I learn how to massage properly. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!!!! Not only does Chris get a mini massage on a daily basis (assuming I don’t hurt him whilst learning the massage techniques!), it brings us closer together through the power of relaxation – AND this daily lesson will be another count down to Christmas! Then, after Christmas it is only 3 days until my Birthday, which will also most likely be the start of my IVF Diary Vol. 2. Whoop whoop!
Time has flown this month, NaBloPoMo15 has signified a lot more to me than just exploring my ability to write and blog. I have discovered that writing is therapeutic, something very much needed. It has helped in my recovery to positivity. I am feeling ready to start afresh. January 2016 is going to be a rollercoaster ride. But I have a feeling that we are going to have a great start to the year.
