Girl, Pay Attention!


I don’t want to think that I’m a flake, but honestly I have not stayed committed to things lately.  By lately I mean for several months now.  I find something I’m interested in and hit it hard for a little while, then get distracted by something new.  It’s not that I’m no longer interested, its just that I suck at time management.

I always plan on getting so much more done than I actually do.  So, my attention strays from my first interest, and focuses on whatever is new.  The original interest gets put on a back burner and I never quite get there.

Another thing I find myself doing is pushing things I want to do away simply because I’m mentally overwhelmed.  I may be dealing with some obstacle in life and instead of carrying on with my normal day, I let it take over my thoughts to the point that I can’t or don’t want to focus on other things.

Lately my blog has been on the back burner.  I have all these intentions and ideas, then bam!  I have to take one of the kids to the doctor, I want to check out this new app, or any of the 1 million other things wives and mothers deal with on a daily basis.  So, I haven’t been writing like I want to.  I’m not really happy with the way it’s all going.

I’m going to make a conscious effort to making more time for my writing.  My blog and WIP deserve my time. I just need to remind myself to PAY ATTENTION! To stop getting distracted and venturing off into too may projects at once.
