I live every day trying. I live most days trying. I live a few days a week trying. Let me try that again…
I procrastinate. I overthink things. I get overwhelmed. I play too many games on my phone.
I want to live every day trying to improve myself and work towards being the best me that I can but instead I live most days trying to catch up with life. I guess that’s technically trying but it’s not the trying that I mean.
By trying, I mean I want to change habits. I want to shape my days. I want to accomplish things. I want to have a successful blog, an organized and easily cleanable house, control of our finances, and time to enjoy each day…not just slog through it. By trying, I’ll give myself permission to fail with the knowledge that I’ll get back up and try again. Perhaps I gave myself a bit too much permission to fail since it’s been 2-1/2 months since my last blog post.
So, I started before, and I’ll start again. I’ll TRY again. This time, I’m going to start with creating a new habit. I’m reading an interesting book about habits called The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. I’ll add a link to purchase it once I figure out how to do such a thing. Anyway, it talks about how habits are formed and changed and how pretty much everything we do in a day is a habit. I’m an extremely habit oriented person so this is good stuff for me.
The new habit I’m going to create is posting to this blog every day. Of course I’ll overthink this. I mean, what will I post about every day? How will I have time to post every day? What time of day is the best time to post? I haven’t even figured out this WordPress thingy so this blog looks like an actual blog. I can’t post anything until I do that! And! How will I have time to figure out new things to try and get to the store to purchase all the things to do the try and when will I do it and what if it’s one of those days where I go to work and immediately have something else going on and am only home for 15 minutes and what if my house is dirty and that shows up in pictures and speaking of pictures I don’t evenknowhowtopostpicturesrightImeandidyouseethesidewayscornonthecobonPinterest!? Yeah…overthinking.
I’ll learn as I go and post everyday. I’ll try.
