For me, discipline hasn’t always been easy. I’d love to be like one of those people who set out to do something and they always do it. They don’t allow distractions to get in their way. However, I tend to get bored with things too easily. I can focus on something for a couple of months but then I get distracted and stop. I need something new to keep my focus.
I think part of my problem with not writing on a regular basis on my daughter’s site is I didn’t want to sound redundant, or at least that is what I told myself. I’ve had people ask me to write more often but I never have. I’d only do it when the mood struck.
So, then I decided to look for ways to help me out. I tried a couple of different books as well as doing the monthly BlogHer NoBloPoMo. In the end, I’ve tapered off on her site and I’m back to posting things on there when I feel right about it.
As for this site, I started the 365 day journey. It’s not always easy and I’m not as regular as I’d like to be but I’m trying. It’s hard to believe I’m already up to day 92. But will this be like so many other things I start off with passionate enthusiasm only for it to die down to nothing and then I stop? I hope not. All I can do is just to keep at it. I know that by doing this not only will you, the reader and follower of this site be able to get to know my me better, but also my writing. It will be like taking a flashlight into my soul thus seeing what I’m all about.
So, I will need lots of discipline as I continue to write on my journey. I hope you will continue the ride with me.
