I know it’s been a minute since I penned a blog post, but I’m back! I have tons of draft topics but never seemed moved enough to finalize and post any of them. Well, I am ready to embark on the 30-day challenge. This came to mind when I began to re-read a book authored by J.L. Ford. I’ll save you the details as to how I obtained his book and got to know him (follow us on twitter and you can view our banter). In my first read of the book, I thought his quotes were an overly optimistic depiction of life. As I re-read it during my train rides in the morning, I realized that it helped me to start my day off in a good mood. I started to ask myself if I followed even one-third of his overly optimistic quotes, how much different could my life be?
With that question, evolved this 30-day challenge. JLF’s book—Wear Yes on Your Heart includes hundreds of quotes and wise sayings related to life, relationships and love which provide me with a wealth of topics to blog about. For the next 30 days I will choose one of those quotes and extrapolate on my thoughts on its meaning.
Disclaimer: I was not involved in the publication of the book, and receive no proceeds from any copies sold–but I suggest picking it up and supporting an African-American author.
