I hate excuses. I love reasons. Sometimes reasons are used as excuses. I think that’s what I’ve been doing about blogging. You see there were good reasons for the disruption to my routine with all the trauma of last month. I tend to cope with such things by battening down the hatches, pulling inward and getting through. I did that. I’m through and emotionally I’ve dealt with it all.
However I’ve not returned to my 5 days a week blogging. I intend to but well reasons became excuses and I languished in the new/old habit of not blogging. Except for that nagging desire, that I want to to it. Yet we all know inertia is hard to overcome or establish. Yes just as a moving blogging truck is hard to stop, a blogger at rest is tends to stay at rest. I hope to muster the energy to overcome the rest and build my blogging inertia.
Energy, I have to admit it is something I have always struggled to get, use wisely, and not exhaust totally. Still learning what is my best pace. Seems just when I get a handle on it, circumstances shift. It doesn’t help I have the desire to do the work of 100s and the energy of half of one… LOL!
All this is to say, I’m sorry I’ve not been here regularly as I was. I long to be and am working how to do that while doing all the other things I want to do too. The latest challenge is the month of the June. At my work this is our big year making month. I know most retail industries it’s December but for us it is June. Don’t ask I won’t explain as my job is beyond the scope of this blog. However, it is where I go during Real Life and will be demanding more of time in the next month. My part time job will become full time then go back to part time again. I hope to balance that with getting back in the blogging groove.
Maybe my best bet is to start with small goals – a post a week at least. If I do more GREAT! Exceeded my goal. I just get one GREAT! Reached my goal! That way I don’t think nope can’t write five posts now so what’s the point? I believe in times of struggle or need to move to a goal, set yourself up for success. Sure I pretty much know I can do ONE post a week but you see feeling successful builds energy that I can put toward making inertia of blogging that will help me reach my big goal of 5 posts a week. So until July it’s a goal of just write one and go from there.
So today that’s what I’m doing…
