sticking with it

So I'm going to take a break from my normal posts, and do one with a little more writing. I've been thinking about this whole blog thing lately, and feeling slightly unmotivated. That got me thinking about one of the first posts that I did, Committment Issues . I publicly stated that I was going to remain faithful to this blog, and I think that means that I need to push through even when I feel unmotivated or uninspired...or simply when life becomes busy. I do think its ok for me to go a week or two there without posting, because lets be honest, we all get busy now and then, but I need to push myself to maintain some consistency.

I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself, so I want to make sure that I allow myself the time in my schedule to be creative. I've recently started writing for a website and blog of an non-profit organization (more details on that later), and it got me thinking about calling myself a blogger if I don't actually blog.

All I want is for this to be a venue for me to be creative, share a bit of myself, and to just be REAL. And, alas, sometimes that means sucking at this whole blog thing.

But that's ultimately what commitment is all about isn't it. Sometimes its easy and fun, and other times its harder and you need to just keep going no matter what, whether its in your career, relationship, or with your hobbies. We all have times when we feel like giving up.

I've been learning a lot about sticking to my commitments this year, and hopefully I'm doing better. And hopefully those lessons are paying off.

What about you? Do you have areas of your life where sometimes commitment seems a little hard? What do you do to stick with it?

  1. a while back i wrote a post about being more 'real' in my topics. it has been a challenge so far but now whenever i go to hit the delete button i take a moment and think about it. i am really happy that i have been able to follow through. i hope you find the same satisfaction through commitment.
