October is for Overcoming Obstacles
Happy October 1st!
I’m not sure what happened to the second half of August or the whole month of September since I last blogged – other than the fact that my husband and I have been involved in some major home improvement projects …
I became a grandmother for the first time on September 12th, when my daughter Joy and son-in-law Cory had a beautiful baby girl named Chloe Lyvia! Yes, I’m biased, but she is adorable!
Other than that, though, I’m seeing a disturbing trend in my blogging efforts. Lots of good intentions, starting and stopping, but never quite maintaining any kind of consistency in blogging or completing blog challenges.
Well, I really need to overcome these obstacles, which are some combination of poor time management, distraction, procrastination, and simply feeling overwhelmed with too much going on. Time to simplify, de-clutter, reorganize, and prioritize – things I have concluded during the home improvement process, making piles in the middle of each room while we painted the walls and ceilings, and now having to go through all that *stuff* rather than just putting it back in place.
So I have dubbed October as the month to Overcome Obstacles. I’m starting the month by joining the Ultimate Blog Challenge–again–and I’m determined to accomplish a full month of blogging!
Who’s with me? What obstacles do you need to overcome? What is your blogging strategy?
