Finding Time vs Making Time

making time

If you're like me, then you probably often find yourself with a long list of things that you need to do. Work to finish. Loved ones to attend to. Household chores to complete. And I bet you are pretty productive in those areas. If you're like me, you probably also have goals and dreams that you want to accomplish. Things that may not give you a true sense of urgency, but that are still important to you. Passion projects. Creative pursuits. Lifelong dreams. These are the things that we often don't get done.

get off track

As you may have noticed (or maybe not, lol), I have missed two days of blogging. "Boo!" "Why can't you stick with anything, Tiffany?" "You're slipping, yo. And you were doing so good. I'm not surprised, though." Those were the thoughts I had this morning when I woke up and realized that I'd done it again. For the second night in a row, I laid down to take a nap after dinner, with the intention of waking up after 2 hours and write a blog post. For the second morning in a row, I woke up after sleeping through the alarm clock. You see, a friend and I have been doing this 30 day blogging challenge where we blog every single day. Up until Monday, I was doing great! But then on … [Read more...]
