Carrying a Clutch? Grab a Napkin

Day 2/30:

It only took me 2 days to decide that I despise this 30 day blogging challenge.  Yep – I really hate it!  WHY?

I am sure that I could write for 30+ days in row and have a ton of fun with it, but as soon as I call it the 30 day challenge, it feels forced.

All of a sudden, I feel like I have to produce content day after day that may be (un) original or authentic or not, but there will be 30 days in row of bullshit content to fulfill the challenge.

I say ‘bullshit.’

For me, this 30 day challenge is bullshit.

This blog is about MOJO, finding my groove, & celebrating your groove, and quite frankly forced content for 30 days in a row conflicts with that mission.

So, all I can say is that more than likely I will write for you the next 27-28/30 days about something you really want to read (and something that I love writing about), but I am taking back my challenge.

I was supposed to get back to you today about my slowing down, and I have been enjoying a slower pace today.  EXCEPT, I am tense from this so-called 30 day challenge when all day, I simply wanted to share with you my napkin moment.

No, I did not play napkin man – I had a napkin moment.

A few weeks ago over drinks in Las Vegas (I do all my best brainstorming in LV), my company name which will produce the elusive braduct appeared in my head. Since I was on a getaway weekend and supposedly not working (ha!), I was carrying a clutch vs. my tote and there was not a notebook in site. Therefore, I grabbed a napkin and a pen and started scribbling.

I have been carrying around the napkin ever since, and now the ball is rolling….

Don’t be mad – I cannot reveal the name yet.  SOON! SOON ENOUGH!  I also need to really name the actual braduct….

Here is hoping for many more napkin moments for me and you.  RB

    What you are experiencing is exactly why I don’t do those writing challenges. Bad enough when you are trying to hit a deadline with a book!

    I’ve got to ask. What is a napkin man?

      Nicole – napkin man is a cute little number that Jude Law does in the movie The Holiday. Rent it – good time of year to watch it 🙂 Rachel

    However we find our way to the revelations we need will, in the end, be a treasured walk (even if in the walking it you feel a little nuts).
