Like so many of you, I am a GREAT multi-tasker. We have to be. With all the many hats that we all wear, it is a simple form of survival.
However, blogging does not offer this as an option.
I can't tell you how many times, I only wish I could haved blogged while driving or ironing or showering or while on the treadmill. Alas, this is never going to happen.
When I was asked to join the #365Blog by my good friend, I thought it would be a nice challenge for my writing. It is. However, I have also come to learn that it is ok if I do not blog everyday. Yes, it is the goal, but I need to give myself permission to not get there. It does not mean I am lazy or uncommitted, I look at it as allowing myself to have balance in my personal life. Something that is very hard to achieve.
I greatly admire my friend, Jill Cross, and many of the other bloggers of the group that have held to the commitment. It is, indeed, a very commendable one that I look up to. For myself, I am ok with not getting there everyday. I am working to fulfill other goals.
Monday, I sat down to write after having the perfect post school afternoon. If only everyday could be like this. I read a novel for awhile (big goal of mine), graded some papers and even worked out before writing. If only I could do that everyday!
So with this being said, I will continue to blog, allowing myself to miss days. For me, it's ok. Sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves. Let some of those pressures go. It's ok.
