Great Tomorrows

"Youth does not think into the future far enough,
therefore we must encourage them to dream of great tomorrows."
- Henrietta Mears

It's been a year. I've been blogging for a whole year! I can't believe I've kept it up. I haven't missed a single weekday. That's consistency, people! In the beginning I wasn't sure I'd be able to keep up with the daily-posting schedule, so I blogged for about two months without telling a soul. I didn't want to say "Hey, check out my blog" and then stop posting two weeks into it. My first post was actually just me mocking myself for how long it took to get this blog set up at all. I like to think the content has improved slightly since then.

I read the book "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years" by Donald Miller in one sitting. In fact, that one sitting took place on Friday June 18th, 2010 - one year ago. I read it cover to cover and it made me want to do more with my life. It made me want to try new things and take chances. I wanted to risk something, to overcome something, anything...it made me want to have a more interesting story. I created this blog that night. 

I had been toying with the idea for a while, but I was too chicken to do it. To me it felt like a risk, and one that I was afraid of being judged for. But it's something I wanted to do for myself, to push myself, and I'm glad I have. I've enjoyed this year and the art that I've created every week. To those of you who actually check in every day (I'm reminded of Tina Fey's acceptance speech at the 2007 Emmys when she thanked 30Rock's "dozens and dozens of viewers" for watching her program) - thank you. I appreciate you. And I'm looking forward to another great year.
