Health Activist Writer's Month 2013: Day 1

Last April, I participated in The Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge. I managed to post daily that time. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess I won't be as successful this year, but I'll give it a shot.

So, why am I doing this? Well, though I am probably not the typical health activist (someone who tends to have one primary focus, i.e. a specific disease/diagnosis), I believe that a lot of the things I blog about are health issues - breastfeeding, infertility, adoption, child abuse/violence to name a few. And sometimes it's helpful to have a more structured way for me to focus on these issues and write about them. Also, lately I just need some help coming up with things to blog about.  So, we're gonna give this a go and, well, see how it goes.

So, yeah. That's all I've got for today. Really, you're going to (hopefully) be hearing a lot from me this month so I don't want to burn you out too soon.


Today's Lesson: There may be a "right way" for you. But there is no one right way, one-size fits all for everyone. The sooner you come to terms with this, the sooner your stress level will go down. Just sayin'.

Happy HAWMC! Looking forward to reading what you have to say....I also need some prompts for writing lately. I'm impressed you made it every day last year....I don't even think I made half. Ha! Looking to improve that record a few percentage points. :)
