Starting over. Again.
That seems to be something I’m good at, starting over. How about you? have you tried something. Attempted to implement a plan only to find yourself faltering after a few hours, days, weeks, maybe months?
No fear. Simply start again. Don’t worry about where, when, or why you stopped. Start again.
I don’t always restart a project. Sometimes after I get into it, I realize it isn’t the right project. Maybe it isn’t right for now or for the reason it was started. Why isn’t really important, knowing it isn’t what I should be currently working on. It’s a project that needs to be put away, or handed off to someone else.
This blog is not one of those projects. I believe in it, and believe it has value. That hasn’t kept it from being abandoned. In fact, it has been restarted so many times I can’t even count. It’s had different hosts. It’s had different names and focus. Even now, with the focus to help widows, and others find and pursue their dreams to create their diamond life I’ve struggled with what and when to post.
Back in July, during the last Ultimate Blog Challenge, the planned posts were about decluttering and what was leaving the house that day. The decluttering lasted all month, the posting didn’t. Then, I never got back to posting and this poor blog was left, abandoned.
This month I’m starting, again. Once again, I’m also using the Ultimate Blog Challenge to kick-start my posts and keep me going all month and into next month. That’s the plan. I also have a posting plan, a list of themes or ideas of what to write and post about each day. Now there’s a scary thought, a pantzer (someone who does things by the seat of her pants) attempting to plan. We will see how it goes.
The current “plan” is to post on different themes or ideas each day of the week:
Sunday – Tea Time – With any luck this will be a video, also posted on Facebook. Today’s: New Foods:
Monday – Moving our bodies and exercise
Tuesday – Virtual travel, come and travel around Oklahoma with me.
Wednesday – Prompts and ideas for writing your story.
Thursday – Quotes
Friday – Food, yes, I know I talked about food today on Tea Time, but these will be posts about easy, inexpensive, foods we can prepare
Saturday – Leisure Time, What do you do on your day “off”? Ideas, suggestions, and hopefully some interaction.
There you have it. My restart and plan for the month. See you tomorrow and we’ll discuss exercise an eight-letter word that usually means “yuck.”
Do you have a project you’ve restarted, or are planning to restart?
What helps you restart a project you believe in?
Have you abandoned a project because it wasn’t the right time, or the right activity for the time?
I look forward to hearing from you. Please leave a comment.
