Facing the Facts

Here I go again.  Why do I do this?  I try to be a consistent  blogger, but I'm not.  I've narrowed it down to a couple of things that hinder me from blogging and I am going to share them with you in hopes that I will overcome these limitations.

I am inconsistent.

There.  Whew!  It's out and you probably were not surprised a bit! I have learned a lot about myself this month due to some amazing information that I am dying to share with you! Later.  One thing I already know is that I have a hard time sticking with some things, more than just blogging.  I will do really good for a while and then something more pressing will come up and vroom!  I'm off to take care of it and then it takes me a while to get back to what I was doing.  Some things I never get back to because they are no longer fun anymore.  I will explain more about that later and it will make perfect sense to you.

When I get overwhelmed, I shut down or ignore whatever it is that is overwhelming to me.

Laundry for instance.  If it gets too piled up, I tend to ignore it until someone (or several someones) cry out' "I'm out of underwear!"  Then I have to MAKE myself face the laundry monster.  Guess what happens?  I tackle it with a vengeance and try to get caught up in one day.  Rome wasn't built in a day, what possesses me to think I can build an empty laundry room in one day?!  I don't know, but this is my tendency.  Is anyone else out there feeling my discomfort right about now? :)

I am forgetful.

Enough said!

If I can't do it perfect, I don't want to do it at all or I tend to put it off until I can.

I have tons of things I want to write about on this blog, but I fret over writing them accurately, intelligently, and interestingly.  Some days I can hop on the computer and pound away the letters as quickly as my little fingers can go.  Other days I contemplate and articulate the very best way to present a post to you, my readers.  I wait too long.  This limitation of mine bleeds into the one I previously mentioned about getting overwhelmed and ignoring something that has piled up.  Thus the biggest reason I go too long between writing.

I have something I want to share with you, but am having difficulties knowing exactly how to write it.  It is something that has deeply impacted my life this month and I want it to deeply affect yours.  It has been fun learning and I want it to be fun for you.  I am still working on the perfect way to share it with you!  It is coming, I promise!

So there you have it.  The real reasons behind my sporadic blogging.  I have learned that these limitations hinder me from being the best that I can be.  I must strive to overcome these limitations in every area of my life. I must strive daily.

If you come back and you don't see a new post, I would love to have you stick with me and check again...and maybe again...until you see something new.  That's a lot to ask, I know.

I love blogging and appreciate my sweet friends who check and see what I've had to say.  I'm really excited to share with you what I have learned this month.  Hang with me, it will be worth it!

Hint: It has to do with learning about why you do what you do (and so much more)!

Blessings to you, my dear friends,
