I’m publishing on a weird day, I know.
Truth is, I skipped another week. For some reason I’m completely out of it. And with that I mean out of my regular routine, out of working on what matters to me, out of motivation, out of inspiration.
A kitten is a lot of work, sure, but that’s not the main problem anymore.
My journey isn’t on the top of my priority list, then again many important items aren’t.
My two main hobbies are writing and drawing. Sometimes I feel writing comes first, sometimes drawing.
Yesterday I read some advice on drawing. “If you want to get better, you need to practice, every day.”
I also read some advice on writing. “If you want to get better, you need to practice, every day.”
And to make something a habit, do it every day. Exercise, laundry, cleaning, this journey, writing, drawing, working…
I don’t have the time to do everything I should do every day. I just don’t have the time. It’s impossible.
STOP. BREATH. RELAX.
For me the problem isn’t that it’s impossible. All of this is a luxury problem. Then again most problems could be viewed as luxury problems.
It’s what I realized while reading this post on Courage 2 Create titled ‘When You Have Nothing Left To Lose, You Only Have Everything Left To Gain‘ yesterday.
It started me thinking, what do I really have to lose? Well a lot of things really.
But a lot of things are just luxury. Most of which I could do without, probably. I don’t want to do without, but I could.
Letting go of unnecessary things would give me more time. Time to work on this journey. So I can whine all I want about how I don’t have time to do all these “should”s every day, but apology not accepted.
I have more time than I’d like to admit, I just need to make time!
So in conclusion, I’m going to recommit to this blog. I’m going to focus on finishing a post by Sunday. This blog, and especially the journey it’s about, should be my number 2 focus (kitten comes first).
I also want to focus on doing more exercises to find my passion and logging my progress on that. So expect mini-posts here and there.
So over to you. Do you struggle with keeping what matters most on top of your priority list? How do you refocus on your most important task?
