When the Slice of Life Challenge is Over #sol18

I got this idea from a fellow slicer, and thought it was the perfect way to reflect on the Slice of Life Challenge. In my eighth year, I am a seasoned slicer and deeply cherish this gift of writing and community, and today, the last day of March 2018, I am sad that it’s coming to an end.

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
get back to my normal exercise routine

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
deeply miss the daily interactions with the SOL community

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
spend time planning my summer travels

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
miss writing every day

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
have more time to catch up on the work I’ve put off

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
be a better friend to those I’ve neglected

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
try to find a happy medium with my blogging (it doesn’t have to be all or nothing)

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
finish that puzzle I started

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
spend more time writing in my writer’s notebook

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
focus more on my goals for this year

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
miss reading about what karpenglish, shaggerspicchu, elsie, standingtall47, angelina’sgarden, and tomasevichtales are up to everyday

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
read more books

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
strike a better balance

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
have a hard time letting go

When the SOL Challenge is over I will
look forward to next year’s challenge

    This is the perfect slice to end this month. What a great format! Eight years of the challenge–now, that’s quite an accomplishment!!! Congratulations!

    I could relate to many of the things you will get back to after this challenge; my own exercise routine has been woefully lacking. I agree with Ms Victor–let’s meet on Tuesdays!

    Such a great reflective piece… love the form you crafted. I connect to most, but this one rings true today: “deeply miss the daily interactions with the SOL community.” Here’s to meeting on Tuesday SOLs.

    I, too, have a list of things I will spend a little more time doing if I am not writing daily, but I will miss it. Weirdly, it seems easier to write every day than only once a week. 😀 Thanks for the shout-out to my blog. I’ll miss your adventures, and those of many others too!

    Wait, blogging doesn’t have to be all or nothing?!?! I wish I could take that one to heart. I am all or nothing with pretty much everything though, blogging included. I am looking forward to spending more time in my writers notebook, to catching up on reading, and to having a little more balance–though I will also miss the daily check-ins with blogs I love.
