One Step Forward, Two Steps Back.

It often seems that when I make headway in one area, I find that I fall behind in other areas. I think, perhaps, it is essentially a lack of discipline. One of the many reasons I took the challenge to participate in the 2011 Workdcount Blogathon. If I can be disciplined enough to blog every day for the month of May, perhaps, I will be able to overflow this discipline into other areas.
Do any of you experience this challenge? Do you start to focus on something you've been longing to do, only to find that other things - the not so interesting or fun things - vie for your time?
I was determined to write daily for 2011. I started a journal and did well for a while but kids, job, house, church, and so much more seems to steal my time. And when I put writing first, the mundane builds up to be overflowing and overwhelming and then takes longer to get under control.
I often feel as though I take one step forward and two steps back. My goal - as well as writing daily for 31 days - is to find balance. I seek organizational discipline. Perhaps the long awaited sunshine bringing longer daylight will trick my brain into thinking there is more time to fit it all in. Hmmm? Here's hoping. . .

  1. What a wonderful start to your adventure. Just take it one day at a time, some days it might be only an insightful quote or thought. Just getting it onto "paper" will make all the difference. Writing is a rhythm and after five years, I am still struggling to fit it long as we have kids, it will be a challenge...but we can do day at a time.
