Have you ever just wanted to quit? To stop doing something you said you would do?
That was me over the last few days. I was done with the 30 day Ultimate Blog Challenge. It was 13 days into the month and I had 8 blog posts done. I was behind by 5 days, and therefore 5 posts. I felt like I was in over my head. It all started with assessing where I was with the challenge at almost halfway through it and thinking about what I had learned. I felt good about getting started and working on photos. Yet I realized that I just wasn't putting enough time into blogging. My posts that felt the best to me were the ones that involved a project, then writing it up and editing it (well, I love my "little list of happy"). They were the ones that took time beyond simply writing out a few sentences. Looking at my schedule for the month, I knew I couldn't do a daily project that would meet my expectations, including pictures not to mention writing and editing. I do like a challenge. I don't want to just stop because I've fallen off track. This is where the learning is...in dusting myself off, figuring out what works better and keeping on.
This is post number 9 of 15 days so far. I am going to keep going despite being behind and not knowing if I will be able to catch up. I probably won't catch up given my schedule over the next week. While that will be uncomfortable, it will feel better than saying "I'm done" or flaking out. Im in!
