Bloganuary: Jan. 25, 2022

For the month of January, I’m going to be doing my best to participate in Bloganuary, a daily blogging challenge. I know it’s a divergence from what I typically write, but participating in this challenge is on my Memory List for this year.

Today’s prompt:

Write about what makes you feel strong.

On days like today, when it’s chilly, grey, and rainy, and my PMS hormones are making me sad and grumpy, I just feel like curling up under the fleece blanket on the couch and binge-watching something.

On days like today, I have trouble tapping into anything that even comes close to resembling strength. And that makes it hard to remember times when I do feel strong. But, I suppose the fact that I’m still writing this post is a testament to at least my mental fortitude. Or perhaps it’s just stubbornness to ensure I keep my Bloganuary streak alive. Regardless, I’m going to brute-force this answer, with all the strength I can muster.

I feel strong when I do bicep curls with my free weights.

I feel strong when I get a hit that goes over the head of an outfielder.

I feel strong when I’m able to open a sealed pickle jar on my first twist.

I feel strong when I use power tools (even though I know they’re doing most of the work).

I feel strong when I get up and go to work, on chilly, grey, and rainy days, when my PMS hormones are doing everything they can to keep me in bed.


Follow along and make memories.
