Do it because you can't

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Wow, blogging sure does require some serious effort! My husband Adam and I decided to start a blog together. Thank goodness he's tech savvy! I think I could have done it myself (with a few MILLION years of researching how), but it probably wouldn't have looked quite like I had hoped.

I though it would be fun to write about healthy living and food, and maybe art and stuff that I like. Adam likes things like sports and politics and science so he writes about that. It's kind of funny though, because I end up reading his posts and vice versa, which is cool because I'm pretty sure he knows more about omega 3 fatty acids than he did last week! He never reads up on nutrition, and likewise I never read about politics. So, this could be fun, I think, AND expand our interests and understanding of each other. Boss!

I've often had to learn things that I didn't think I could do. I would pretty much agree to do any new skill at all for my martial arts teacher. I remember spending 14 hours learning how to deal with some raw video footage from one of our seminars. I never had a reason to do it before, and after giving it a go I was convinced I wouldn't be able to. But I persisted and insisted and eventually made it happen. That felt god and very surprising that I could handle it. Not the most tech oriented girl here!

Come to think of it, the- "Do it because you can't motto" has really influenced many of my successes, from pulling out of depression to making it up that 14 degree incline climb on my bike. I think I'd better go make a post about that!

Have you ever had to (or chose to) force yourself to do something you knew would help you? How did it work out?

btw - feel free to check out the infancy state of our new endeavor!
