My October Challenge

This October, I am once again challenging myself to write blog posts daily. It also serves as a challenge for my marriage: I cannot write when I am upset with my husband or he with me. I need to practice what I preach or no words come out.

This makes me wonder about my first marriage, back when I had no idea I could do anything about my unmet expectations or that my first impression of what happened was usually wrong because it ignored most of the facts available to me. I wonder what my anger and fears kept me from doing--and who I would be today if I had done something about them.

Ever wonder about this yourself?


Yes, I certainly do wonder about that. Frequently.
