Where would we be without inspiration quotes to remind us how to live our lives? The internet is flooded with quotes. We have #MotivationalMonday, #TuesdaysTips, #WednesdayWisdom, #ThursdayThoughts, #FridayFeeling then on to #Weekendvibes. I am sure there are so many more hashtags to justify a reason to give an inspirational quote. Sometimes you just want to roll your eyes but the truth of the matter is it serves as a nice little reminder.
I had big plans at the beginning of 2016. In all areas of my life – Family, Relationships, Fitness, Blogging, etc. The list is long. A few months in, I am realising that I can not do it all. Well, not all at once. Even when I prioritise my time there still doesn’t seem like enough hours in the day. But I am OKAY with that. It is March and a good month to re-evaluate goals that were set for 2016.
One thing that has been bothering me is I thought I would be more ahead with this blog. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about it. It is always sitting there in the back of my head but yet I haven’t even finished setting it up. What’s up with that? Well, I know that once I sit down to work out all the kinks on the site – 3 hours will disappear in a flash! I could work late into the night on my blog, but that would mean giving up sleep time. Not to sound selfish, but if I don’t get my sleep the following day is not productive nor do I have any amount of patience – which can make for a very long day with 3 little kids. Sleep trumps blogging for now.
That being said, I have decided to make more of an effort this month. It is getting to the point where I haven’t written in ages and honestly I don’t want to give it up. I found myself having an internal debate over whether or not having a blog was worth it to me. Then I did what most people do when they are thinking – I scrolled through my instagram feed. All the usual quotes came filing through:
You are your only limit
3 months from now you’ll thank yourself
Don’t Be Afraid to Fail – Be Afraid to Try
Dreams don’t work unless you do
Fine! I took that as my sign from the universe. March is the month where I get back on track with blogging. I will make more of a conscious effort to write and develop this blog. I may not be where I wanted to be at this point in time, but I will keep moving forward. Eventually I will get there.
Do you have an area of your life where you thought you would be further ahead than you actually are? Please share. We can encourage each other.
