My intentions were not to get deep and serious so early in my blog, but I stumbled across this post today, and it really spoke to me. I felt like the author was describing me, but more eloquently than I ever could. My non-negotiables are different, and my dreams are different, but the feeling of inertia towards pursuing my dreams is the same.
This is something I’ve made a conscious decision to tackle. Starting this blog is one step towards pursuing my dreams. I have been wanting to have a blog for a couple of years, so I decided to “just do it”. I want to find more time to sew, I have business ideas, and home projects to pursue, and it is my goal to actually do them, not just dream about them.
My biggest roadblock is time management. I waste too much time each day doing non-essential things, when I could be spending my time doing things I enjoy more. Why can’t I make the things I love and want to be doing a higher priority? Perhaps because I have to do things I don’t enjoy so much before I can get to the other, more “fun” things? How do I motivate myself to get the “work” out of the way so I can pursue my dreams and interests?
Like the author of that post, by the end of the day I feel “spent” and like I deserve a break. BUT, I have time during the day, many days of the week, where I don’t have this excuse. So, no more excuses!
