the last word

On May 8, 2011, at 2:40PM EST, I hit Enter and submitted my first blog post.

The post you are now reading is my 75th.

The blog was begun as a means of motivating myself to finish a book by the same title, “The Best Advice So Far,” which I started one year ago this month.

This morning –  July 25, 2011, at 3:18AM EST –  I wrote the last word, completing that book.

I considered musing here about how it feels to accomplish such a monumental task.  I considered outlining the journey.  The wide-eyed beginnings with the lofty goal of completing in three months.  The months-long dry spell somewhere in the middle.  The combination of numbness and exhilaration as I finished the last sentence in the quiet hours, alone.   The miles of colorful landscape in between.

Instead, I will simply say thank you –  to every one who has read and commented and encouraged.

Who has shared  stories.

Who has inspired with your lives.

Who has walked this journey with me.

Today, I will enjoy the moment.

Today, I choose to celebrate.
