Day 365 of 365
Sitting on my roof this morning and writing in my journal brought me right back to when I started this blog. It was a simple 365 project aimed at shooting a different photo of my hand every day for a year but I quickly realized that my love for purging my thoughts would eventually take over the photo aspect of this blog. Now 365 separate days of this blog spanning just about 3 years and I don’t know if my writing has improved much at all. lol, I don’t much care either way. This blog was medicine for me and it served as a daily reminder of the virtues I hold close to my heart. The simple process of having an idea and accomplishing it even if it takes longer than expected was still a satisfying practice. The most important things I got out of this experience were simple actions like discipline, consistency, the importance of taking risks and having a community. Most importantly be willing to look foolish. Be vulnerable in all matters of the heart.
For this final blog, I just want to thank everyone who read along and sat with me on the hard days. From the passing of our family dog Dakota, the resentencing of my fathers killer, the emotional letters on how much my mother means to me, and the countless number of photo trips. It has been a wild ride and I’m just glad I had a few readers along the way. You guys mean the world to me.
It is my hope that this blog will inspire you to take one simple action daily for yourself. You never know what may come from it.
With love, Atticus.
