"Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.--William Faulkner


So ... I started this blog as a way to get stuff out because I simply can not have it bottled all up inside or it is going to destroy me ... anyways ... I stumbled upon this 30 day challenge when I was off in the blogosphere  and realized that it sounded like a good way to get some stuff off my chest and get to know myself a little better at the same time.  The getting to know myself a little better sounds really scary, but I'm going to give it a try ... at least for 30 days. I'm hoping that once I know myself in depth then maybe I'll stop wanting to switch lives with a storybook character on a daily basis. I know that I have a lot of things to be thankful for and that I'm very blessed in the family, love, and friends department but I just can't help but let other things overshadow all that happy. My self-destructive self must be stopped and I'm bound and determined this is the way I'm going to do it. Blogging everyday for 30 days sounds rough and like I won't be able to do it ... which is exactly why I'm making myself try. Refer to the quote to title this post ... I must keep pushing and find the greatness. That's another goal ... 1. find myself 2. be happy with myself 3. find the greatness within myself 4. push the greatness within myself to higher levels 5. live happily ever after ... we have to start at step 1 every time right? So, here we go.

p.s. I'm going to start tomorrow and the only break I plan to take along the way is next weekend when Scott and I are going away because I've deemed time with the love of my life way more important than pushing myself for three days. Gotta have priorities right?
