Break That Barrier

I realized something tonight…

I had been pondering this question all day really.  What is it that is keeping me from working on the projects I have and finishing them?

You know how sometimes you over think things and blame this or that or try this method or try that method.  I got all caught up in thinking too much about it.  Is it this reason or that reason?   Am I trying to fail purposely or am I just a failure?

Finally, I got it.  It took a simple question that popped up on my email that night.  Funny how sometimes something so simple can give you the answer you need.

King quoteI realized that sometimes you just need to run that race and complete it.  You need to stay in the trenches.  As a parent, I cannot just quit and not be the mommy anymore.  I can quit some of my responsibilities for a time, but I cannot ever quit being the mommy.  That one goes with me forever now.

Even though it is hard, I need to keep at it and push through. images

What I realized is that I will break that barrier when I complete this project and publish the story.  Until then, I need to just keep pushing and keep trying.  I cannot give up.  I can do this.

I also realized that the longer I procrastinate, the longer this will take.  I could just drop it and let it all fall by the wayside, sure.

Lord knows I do not want to be a failure.  I did not start this project to quit.

I want to succeed and do this.

I need to just stick with it and do it. Finish this race!

Procrastinating…….  Sigh…  Quit overthinking things!

What are you working on that is a bit of a challenge to complete?  How are you doing with keeping at it??




My Daughter is having an open house today.  We love these products!  So easy to use and NO harsh chemicals.

  1. You’re singing my song! I’ve been trying to start an online affiliate market store. I have the website name, the hosting, taking an online class on how to do it, but haven’t finished the class yet. And haven’t started on the website at all. Bah! Overthinking is definitely part of it. I’d like to follow one bloggers logic of just working on a project for 10 minutes a day. Just keep plugging at it for 10 minutes every day in hopes 10 works into longer, but even if it doesn’t, I’ve at least accomplished something. I haven’t started that either though. Sigh. good luck with your project! You’ll do it, I’m rooting for you!


    1. I have been trying for 15 at least. I learned a long time ago from FlyLady, that if you set a timer for 15 min you can get a lot of cleaning done. I applied that to writing and so far, seems to be helping!! You can do it!!
      And- thanks for rooting for me!! I appreciate it!!


  2. Great post! We all procrastinate, so cut yourself a little slack — but not too much slack. 🙂 I’m delaying something good — outlining one of two manuscripts. My goal is to publish two books by June of next year God willing. Though I have the ideas, I have not yet put them on paper. Today is the day. 🙂
