WHAT IS #365DaysToLive? After really looking at my current existence, I decided to both live life and parent my son as if I knew I only had 365 days to live. The following is a blog post within that series.

I really feel like I’m just flying by the seat of my pants at this point…

And I mean that in the BEST way.

This #365DaysToLive challenge has been so incredible for my life. I’m on day 45, and so much has changed, or is about to change. I am so happy and content compared to pre-challenge life, even though I’m often frazzled after expending the energy it takes to live a challenge like this.

Since I last posted…

  • I went on an impromptu road trip with my sister to St George, Utah. We had a blast even though it was over and done in 24 hours.
  • I went on a nearly weeklong trip with Noah to Southern California. We rented a convertible Mustang, we went to Universal Studios, did all the Hollywood things, visited different piers, and in general just had an awesomely bonding time.
  • I met up with an old friend and we got caught up, and promised to hang out way more often.
  • I’ve got half of my house packed for our big move next week.
  • Okay, this one isn’t “since I last posted,” but… I’m getting on an airplane in three hours to go visit some other friends that I haven’t seen in ages. It’s going to be a weekend to remember!

What I’ve decided about living the #365DaysToLive Challenge and blogging about it…

I just don’t have the time to blog about it much at all, and if I’m being honest, I don’t feel great blogging about it. And this is why…

I’m doing this challenge for me. And for my kid. And for my own life. I’m not doing it to get attention or be accountable to any other person for any part of it. So…

I’m probably not going to blog many #365DaysToLive at all from here on out. I’m enjoying the challenge SO much, and I will continue doing it every day. That being said, if you want to follow along with what I’m doing, you’ll need to do it on Instagram because that’s where I like posting my favorite moments and memories.

My user name is @danoah. Follow or don’t. It’s my personal account.

What I’ve also realized…

I’m a single dad.

I now have an amazing girlfriend.

I have a full time job most weeks just running the Single Dad Laughing Facebook page.

I have other responsibilities in life.

I have my own fitness to get on top of.

I have friends that I miss and love.

I have family that I love seeing.

I am also trying to add in all this new and exciting #365DaysToLive stuff.

That’s a lot on my plate. It just doesn’t leave much time for detailed blogging. Thanks for understanding. I hope to see you on Instagram.

Oh, I’ll still blog from time to time when I just feel a big urge to blog. But this blog stopped brining in much income a very long time ago, so when I do blog it’ll be for no reason than that I’ve got something that needs sharing!

Until the next post…

I hope you all join me in this challenge. I hope you all hang with me on Facebook during your down moments. I hope you all have amazing lives filled with happiness and laughter. I hope you find your groove and enjoy getting out of any ruts you might be in the way I’ve enjoyed getting out of mine. I hope you have all the success and wonder in your lives that you desire. I hope you have lives filled with so much love and so many incredible relationships.

I am sincerely just so damn thankful for all of you. Life is good. So good.
