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.
I 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.
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.
But then I would have failed.
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??
