Recently, I’ve been watching people put up posts on Facebook with the title:
Seven days. B&W picture challenge. No People. No explanation. Day # (whatever)
As part of the challenge, the person would tag another person who would then have to participate and do it as well.
I held my breath each time I saw this, hoping no one would tag me.
I mean, OMG, I had enough to do! I sure didn’t need one more thing to think about, worry about, have to do every day! I liked looking at the photos people were posting, though, and many of them were very interesting. Anyway, as the days went by and I remained untagged, I started to let out my breath a little.
And then it happened.
Someone tagged me! I thought, of course, it’s not mandatory! I don’t HAVE to do it! But somehow I didn’t decline. I decided to just start and see what happened.
What happened was this: I discovered that I was enjoying it. I was looking forward to it. Even though my dance card was so full it felt like a straight-jacket some days, this did not.
So, thank you to the brave person who tagged me to do this challenge!
It turned out to be a gift.
