Sunday Challenge

Finally breaking radio silence!

 

Hello all!! After a much too long hiatus, I’m back!

In my last post I mentioned I’d be working through the weekend for a couple of weeks and might be too busy for writing. Well that couple of weeks quickly turned into a couple of months and suddenly I had so much new, fun stuff to write about that I didn’t know where to start. Without knowing where to start — I just didn’t.

The whole purpose of me starting this thing, as you read in my very first post, was to start chasing stars. Instead, in between bouts of busy, I stopped chasing those stars. In the name of relaxation, I mostly just sat back and… LOOKED at the stars, without actually getting up to chase them.

And I’ll be the first one to say –

If you’re also in that spot… THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT. 

Just don’t get stuck there for too long. 

 

Which! Brings me to my Sunday Challenge.

You know that one thing that’s on your To-Do list that you just haven’t gotten around to? That ONE thing that just sits at the bottom of your list. It’s ok if you don’t get to it right away. It’s ok if it gets pushed further down when more important tasks come up. It’s ok if you never even really get around to taking care of it. But! You want to take care of it. It’s just going to take effort. You know THAT thing?? (Be honest! We all have one.)

My challenge to you:

Do SOMETHING that makes forward progress to getting it done, to accomplishing it.

A big step or a small one. Knock it off your To-Do list, or maybe just move it up on your to do list. Maybe get someone else involved that will hold you accountable, or even better- help you. Set a timeline. Set a reward for yourself.

Just…. (is it cliche to say?) …do it.

 

Getting this blog out, breaking through that barrier of “I’ll get to it next weekend” (which, sweet Boyfriend has heard me say for a couple months now….), is my step in the name of forward progress.

I do have so much fun stuff to write about. I’ll fill everyone in on what I’ve been up to the past couple of months- exciting work adventures, traveling across the country a couple of times. So much fun material to sift through, reflect on, and share with all the wonderful friends and strangers that take time to read what I have to say.

To all my family, my coworkers and friends that have asked if I’m still blogging, when my next post is going to be, what it’s going to be about, and hearing how much you enjoy reading what I write- thank you. Each comment and question has meant more than you realize.

 

So now, with Monday looming over us all, I’ll leave you with this.

The craziest storm rolled through my town this evening. Lightning every few seconds, crashing thunder- a wild storm even for us southeastern folks that are accustom to summer storms. In between sets of storms I noticed how discolored the sky was. You know that eerie yellow/green color when there are bad storms around? I walked onto my porch to look at the sky and ended up witnessing the most spectacular rainbow.

I think it’s important to note that THREE TIMES I went running back inside because there was still such sharp lightning coming from the storm! BUT! I got the picture! (#DoItForTheGram….??)

Fitting, I thought, to witness as I was planning on what to say in this post.
