The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Free Bird

1 cup

I’ve reached the Space Bird badge last week.
It’s been a long 500-day journey and I’m very thankful to creators of this site for letting me have this thrilling experience.
Once I was on the verge of failing. I was on the business trip and my notebook didn’t want to get online so to keep the streak I typed the daily word quota through my mobile only to find out the next morning that it didn’t count…
To say that I was disappointed is to say nothing.
I kept on writing turning into an egg.
And in the meantme I’ve humbly asked for a pardon from the tech support. And before I turned into a penguin I’ve received the kind note from Kellianne that notified me that I’ve been reinstituted as a Pegasus and that it’s quite an often complaint about attempts to do it through mobile phones… It was such a relief. And I can’t feel more thankful than I was – because it’d be very hard somehow to start all over again… I know I’d do that anyways but it’d be such a drawback…

Right now – i’m in the new trip to get that new badge of Flying Squirrel. And it’s going to be a tough journey – but I’m prepared. The habit of daily writing is so strongly ingrained in my brain – that I don’t worry at all that I won’t reach that ultimate target.

In the process of journey – I find a lot of positive changes in me. I am less worried about things – once they’ve written out you start seeing them from a different angle and you find that most of the worries are silly. I feel that I have a better control of my thoughts – I haven’t reached the state of enlightenment yet – but I feel that the firm grisp of incessant thinking has somewhat relaxed and mostly because of the meditation I practice while typing 750 words daily.

I also praise myself on facebook – doing screenshots and bragging about the new badge – but it has some side effect. People say that they get inspired by my example and they want to write more as well. So, it’s a ripple effect that has its positivity.

Once again – thanks to Buster and Kellianne for this wonderful space. I’m pretty sure that without this great resource my life would be much more boring…
