It occurred to me about 10 minutes ago that I have been procrastinating all morning about writing a post for this blog. The type of procrastination was insidious, however, because it was masked in the belief that if I had “Other Things To Do” I was not in fact procrastinating. Hmm. As my Dad used to say when I was little and had made a discovery, “Pretty tricky, huh?”. (Translation for Canadians: “Pretty tricky, eh?”)
Normally this type of revelation would throw me into a fit of existential crisis but as usual I have a choice:
Choice #1: Get swept up in existential crisis or
Choice #2: Decide/prioritize what it is I want to accomplish with this blog and stick to it.
Of course I pick Choice #2! What did you expect? Here’s the deal: I will continue doing my Quote of The Day, Ashland House Updates and Success Through Accountability features. Over the next few weeks, however, my primary focus will be to get the Toddler Tuesday feature up and running. I’ve been a little stuck on this last feature because there is so much to cover. I am also planning on “vlogging” Toddler Tuesdays which requires that I develop a new skill set. It turns out that vlogging requires more self-acceptance than I am used to, however, if it helps our toddler friends live in harmony with the adults in their lives it’s worth it.
Additionally, this recent development in my blogging life has led me to the following conclusions:
Conclusion #1: If the goal of my blog is to encourage, educate and help others create a Joyful Day then all of my posts should reflect that. Which leads me to
Conclusion #2: Just because I could blog about a topic doesn’t mean I should. For example, if I go to Whole Foods and get irked by the parking situation I don’t need to do this.
Conclusion #3: In all honesty I’m more stressed out about this blog than anyone else. In this case, I’m the last to know. What can I say? Everyone has a different learning curve.
Eureka! Time to let the procrastination cease.
As always, thanks for reading and have a Joyful Day!
