Well, like many things in life, I started this blog with good intentions!
Then a week went by in which I was too busy to write… then another week… then something came up… then I worried about not having written for a while… then more time passed… then Thanksgiving… then Christmas… then… (I think you get the picture).
So here we are in Coronaville. The COVID-19 virus has come and reset so much of life as we know it – and it looks like we still have a long way to go before the needle begins to move back towards “normal.”
But that’s not what this post is about. This post is about starting again. Beginning anew. Second tries. Do-overs. Sometimes in life things don’t go the way we expect them to go. Our plans go sideways. We get distracted. We have to back up and take a different route. Or we have to crumple up our plans and throw them into the trash can, get out a clean sheet of paper, and start drawing a new plan.
So that’s what I’m doing with this blog! I’m resurrecting it from the grave of discarded and abandoned blog attempts, and giving it a jumpstart and new life! And this time – I’ve got some help! That’s right, this time around I have a friend who is going to be contributing some from time-to-time as well. I’ll introduce my friend next time around, but I had to drop that tease to encourage you to check back in soon and see who the “Mystery Contributor” is!
So what about you? What is something that you planned to do – maybe even started doing and had going for awhile – but over time allowed life and busyness and ADHD to crowd your attention and push it to the side? What commitment do you need to pick back up again? What habit do you need to jumpstart and kick off again? I know I can’t be the only one who has let the stuff of life distract me away from something I really wanted to do! So please, share with us in the comments section and let us know what it is that you have put down that you need to pick back up again?
Maybe we can encourage each other just a bit?
