Back in the 1970’s and 80’s there was a vitamin that was recommended for women called One a Day. I have no idea what ingredients were actually in that vitamin but all I knew was if you took One a Day, it was good for your health. That simple brand name was engrained in my head so when I started looking for vitamins, I was instantly drawn to One a Day.
These days, there are thousands of vitamins to choose from with much less catchy names and savvy consumers are way more concerned about ingredients instead of taglines. But there’s something to the mission behind One a Day that got me thinking this morning.
What would happen if you did one thing you loved every single day of the week? It could be singing once a day. Dancing. Spinning. Or just writing. And bam! That’s when it hit me. I haven’t written on my blog in a very long time. Like an old plant that hasn’t been watered in months, Role Mommy has been withering on the vine. Truth be told – I’ve been so busy watching MSNBC on a 24/7 loop while trying to earn a living, that I stopped doing the one thing a day that used to make me really happy. Writing.
So as we head into the new year, my pledge to myself and to you dear reader is that I’m going to strive for that One a Day goal. One blog post a day that will inspire you, make you laugh or just make you think. It’s time to go back to doing more of what I love and hopefully, when I look back a year from now, my newfound One a Day routine will make a difference in my life and possibly yours too.
So here’s my challenge to you. Find your One a Day passion that you need to ignite again. Tell me what it is and keep me updated on whether you too are committing to do something that makes you happy every day. And for the record – One a Day didn’t sponsor this post…it just inspired me to get my act together. Now time to take some vitamins!
