NaBloPoMo_November_smallI said I was going to post every day for 30 days and so here I am. This isn’t much of a post – It’s 11:50 at night.  But I am showing up and writing anyway. I was tempted to let it go, cut myself some slack. I have friends who arrived in town today and it’s been a whirlwind. In fact, we just now arrived home.

But there is something important to the muse about showing up when you said you would. So here I am, if only briefly. I’m counting it as a win.  My instinct would be to let it go, complain that I couldn’t make it perfect or even good so why bother? But here’s the thing: showing up is always better than not showing up, great or not. In fact, showing up and allowing yourself to do it badly can be freeing and can ultimately open up your creativity to bigger and better things.

On another occasion, I could write more about this – but with only minutes to go to get this posting online, I’ll just say:

Show up – it matters.
