Good morning! Are you as excited as me that it is Monday?! I mean don't get me wrong I love my weekends, but there is just something so beautiful about Mondays! For me it means a super clean house, clean sheets, something yummy for dinner, and just getting back into a routine.
This week however is a bit different than the rest. I have given myself a writing deadline and to be honest it feeds right into what I wanted to share with you to motivate you on this Monday. Distractions.
Distractions ~ even if they are sweet ones, fun ones, relaxing ones can keep us from reaching the goals that we desire to reach. If you are not setting goals you will not be as successful in your life as you might desire. For me, I love writing and have committed to being more proficient and dedicated at doing more than just recreational writing.
With that said, It is so hard to block out things like Facebook, Twitter, Etc if you use it on a regular basis which I do. It is how I network, and keep up with my friends and family while living this thing called life! I could get lost for hours reading through posts, interacting in groups, or watching videos. Hours. While it is not necessarily a "bad" thing... I do allow myself to waste time that I could be using on other things.
I do not normally consider blogging as a distraction but this week I am. At least until I get done with a hefty deadline that I gave myself. So, I guess what I am saying is that this will most likely be the last post of the week until Saturday when I will begin daily posting again. I gave myself a deadline to finish a book that I am writing and I am determined to follow through and remain committed in reaching that deadline. Even if it means turning OFF Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Even if it means no blogging for the week. If at the end of the week I can come back and say 'Yahoo I did it" while still working my 40 hour work week, keeping my home maintained to the level that I desire then it is worth it.
I have said this before, but I am hoping to be including some YouTube resources for you as well as some new and fun stuff coming up in the next couple of months. I am not leaving you forever, just taking a much needed pause to complete a dream! See you Saturday!
