“I have all the time in the world to do everything that I need to accomplish.” This is the mantra that goes through my head often. Whenever I start thinking about everything I need to get done and wondering when I’m going to find the time to get it done, I say this to myself and it helps to calm me. It’s going through my head right now as I type this…. because I’ve just realized that once again it has been months since I last blogged.
If only there were a way to transcribe my daily thoughts directly to my blog. I would have the most amazing blog… and I would be that much closer to writing my book. Is this what writers block is? So many great thoughts go through my head, but when I go to verbalize them out loud or write them down, they get stuck. I know it has something to do with my perfectionism. When they don’t come out perfect, I get stuck trying to figure out how to say them the way they sounded in my head. And then I start rambling and I get frustrated with myself…. and I give up.
Whoa…. Did I really just say that? I am not a quitter, I do not give up!! Yet it is what I have been doing. I think I may have just had a breakthrough. I have been giving up, by not really trying to do things unless I think I can do them perfectly. This is not where I was going with this blog, but I’m going to keep rolling with it. I am going to commit to blogging something each day. And I’m going to post it no matter how random or rambling it is. I’ve been wanting to establish some new daily habits and routines, but I have so many swirling through my head that I get overwhelmed. I do not believe I can do them all, and I want to make sure I pick the right ones. So what ends up happening is that because I’m not able to pick the perfect ones…. Yes – I give up and pick NONE.
I’m going to start with this one. My daily blog. Maybe this will be the name of a chapter in my book. The book that I AM WRITING THIS YEAR. The birth of the daily blog. I like it.
