And so it begins…30 Day Challenge Part 2

I am a day late with the daily challenge. I know.  Here’s why: Yesterday I felt incredibly crappy. And you know the only thing worse than feeling crappy on your anniversary? Your girlfriend also feeling crappy. At least there was solidarity. Damn the zombie plague.

Today is a new day, though. The sun is shining and I’ve got coffee. You know what that means? It means I’m kicking off these 30 days of photos by taking a photo of my coffee. You knew this was coming, right? Some people take pictures of their dogs or their cats or their babies … I take pictures of my coffee.

30 Day Coffee Photo Challenge—Day 1


It’s so cute. LOOK AT IT. Also? Delicious. Mmmm!

I’m going to go ahead and do the questions challenge as well. I hope some of you will join me in answering these questions. So feel free to drop your answers in the comments.

30 Day Question Challenge—Day 1: What’s something you’re really proud of?

This is an interesting question. I’m not the sort of person who spends a lot of time thinking about my accomplishments. I’m more the other type—the one who sits around panicking about how little I’ve gotten done.

Now that I’ve sat here thinking about this for longer than I probably should have, I think there’s quite a few things I’m proud of. Here’s three:

  • Being “out” – I’ve been out of the closet for so long that I don’t really remember being in it (well, that’s not really true), but I’m really glad that I made the decision not to hide, even back in the day when I had no idea how the people around me would react. So, I’m proud, but I’m also grateful. A lot of people have it much harder.
  • Moving to France –  Sometimes I think, “Am I really here? Did I really do this?” I dropped pretty much everything and took a chance on love. I don’t regret it for a second. Even if things had gone poorly and even if it had turned out to be a terribly dumb decision, I think I’d still be proud of myself for taking that leap.
  • Writing about what I love/believe in – It’s taken me a long time to figure out why I write. I think it’s easy to get lost in all the writing/publishing/career advice. Decisions become easier when you figure out what the whole point/purpose of what you’re doing is.

There are other things, but that’s good enough, I think. Your turn! What are you really proud of?
