Well folks, here we are. After reading 100 memoirs, writing 400 blog posts, and drafting page after page of memoir, we are entering the last trimester of labor. 100 Days Until Launch. Yea!
Thank you, thank you, for sustaining me thus far.
The best is yet to be. The goal has always been more than writing a book. Since building community (ubuntu) has been the goal all along, I invite you to enter into a challenge with me.
Fill in this blank. At the end of 100 days I want ______________.
Personally, I want to feel rested, trim, fit, and ready for a marathon fall. I also want to experience gelassenheit.
Whoa, you say. What’s that?
Gelassenheit means yieldedness or submission to God and to community. It was a favorite word of the Anabaptists (original name of both Mennonites and Amish). It can also mean “letting go.”
In other words, I want to work hard and play hard and underneath all the effort, I want to rest in the everlasting arms of God.
If I am going to fill in my own blank and achieve these goals, I need to take small steps every day.
So will you.
Follow me to the new 100 Beginnings Challenge Page to learn more. There’s a pretty sweet prize here for the lucky winner.
