Day 45 – The Big Questions

So we’re rounding out the last few days of blog posts for this 47-day project and I have to ask myself, “What did you accomplish?”  The answer is, I’m not sure.  I asked myself a lot of questions over the last 45 days and I even asked a few friends to help out with guest posts.  I posted something every day, even if it seemed insignificant.  I tried to make the posts at least somewhat interesting, but I’m sure I fell short on most days.  So, what did I get out of this project?  Did I accomplish anything? Or was it just a way for me to annoy people with daily posts?  I think maybe it was a little of all of these things.

In doing the posts each day, I got into the habit of doing more writing than I’ve done in years.  I was able to get back to what I enjoy the most; telling stories.  Whether those stories made sense to anyone but me or not doesn’t matter; the point is that I did it.  And yes, I accomplished something that I haven’t been able to accomplish for a very long time.  I wrote.  I’ve been so busy with other projects that I’ve neglected my own writing.  And now, I see that I need to be writing a little something every day.  Just to keep myself moving forward.  Sorry if some of what I’ve posted was a little hard to follow or seemed irrelevant in the scheme of things.  The writing helped me to process some things I’ve gone through as well as things that are currently happening.  The posts weren’t meant to annoy; simply to express.

I’ve got two days left and I’m hoping to wrap this project up with something cool for you to read.  I do appreciate your reading the posts and commenting when you possible.  I look forward to the next big project!

My name is Rebecca Benston. I’m a Christian. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a writer. I’m a thinker. When I write fiction, I am usually writing a mystery series called The Rona Shively Stories. My P.I. character, Rona Shively is feisty, fearless and fabulous and is usually caught up in something she doesn’t want to be caught up in. In addition to this series, I also have a blog called Higher Ground for Life. Through this blog, I’m hoping to reach women or anyone who is seeking to develop a relationship with God and give them inspiration to get out there and follow His path for their lives!
I also have a blog called Leading the Follower. This one is my favorite. I write about religion, faith, spirituality and all that goes along with it. What we believe, what we don’t believe, what we are told to believe and how society feels about believing in general. I do a lot of testifying here and some of what I say may make you angry. Most of it will make you think. Some of it will make you cry. Any of it could make you laugh. It’s really up to you.

Be blessed!
