One Little Word Blog Hop

If you visited me during the last blog hop you might remember that I was really struggling with my word.  You can read this post to get the whole story. I was really thinking of just stopping this project and calling it done.

The strange thing was that feeling that my word was bring out the worst of my perfectionism actually helped me define some of the issues I was having. So in a weird way my word was still hard at work.

After that post I was really burned out. I finally admitted, out loud, that I was doing too much. I was trying to be everything 100% and not achieving anything that was truly making me happy. So I used this months prompt to focus on those areas that are most important for me to define and live - the rest is just filler.

The areas I defined that I want to put effort into are:



Many of these things have been taking a back seat to surfing the web, reading blogs, reading books, etc.  Don't get me wrong I love to do those things but the joy versus time spent ratio is low.  So I might not be around commenting, reading and posting much to blogs for awhile, but when time permits I will stop in. I want to spend my time getting the biggest joy out of the effort.

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is over to Naomi's Blog
