I've admitted before that I am a procrastinator. For the most part, I know what I should be doing to get ahead in life. Sometimes, though, I am just too weary to buckle down and do what needs to be done. Yet other times, I am like the rabbit instead of the tortoise, racing through my to do list, trying to reach the goal line so I can just sit and be me. Trying to even out my differences has been challenging, and in part I have you to thank.
Whoever the folks are who read this blog, are part of what keeps me going on a day to day basis. I don't ever want you to come here and see my blog without a new post for seven days or more. I know that I feel somehow cheated when the people whose blogs I read daily haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I've made a personal comittment to share my life journey with you all, one day at a time. Even when it seems mundane and pointless.
I know I'll have days that I don't feel like blogging because I'm too drained from whatever emotional toll that life has thrown at me. It usually never lasts to long though. I keep reminding myself that "This too shall pass". Whatever it is that puts me in a funk cannot last forever, at least not if I don't let it. The debt fatigue may set in, the feeling of being overwhelmed when things get tough, the continuous negativity I get from my ex, the feelings that I'm not really accomplishing anything all tend to give me stbacks in my life, and therefore in my writing.
I don't want those situations to have the power to rend me incapable of activity anymore. I want to be able to write truthfully and faithfully on a daily basis. Most days, I feel like no one cares what I write, and then a comment shows up from a reader and it gives me the encouragement I need to keep writing. Even when I have a crummy day or two. Your encouragement through comments are very valuable to me, and I just wanted to say thanks.
