A Coffee and Some Confessions Friday

I didn’t post anything here on Wednesday as Tuesday turned into a non-writing day in terms of working on things for here and for NaNoWriMo. While I was frustrated I wasn’t mad with myself, either. Sometimes there are enough other things going on which warrant some time curled up on the couch watching a bit of TV whilst scrolling through Tumblr while a snuggly cat curls up on your lap.

But …

I have been dropping some things I know I shouldn’t be dropping when things get busy. I realized last night it was a pretty good indicator at what my true priorities are in some areas and man – it was sobering.

  • I claim exercise/staying healthy is a priority … But throw in some stressful situation to the mix, and I plop down with All the Junk Food.
  • I claim reading my Bible daily is important … But throw in some extra projects/hours at work and NaNoWriMo and I’m Too Busy/I’ll Do It Later. And later, I’m on Facebook or Twitter instead.
  • I claim to lean on and trust in God in all things … But I’ve got again what I now dub my stress indication zits (one on each cheek, so at least I’m balanced in that) because, obviously, <insert sarcasm font> leaning on and trusting in God makes me break out <end sarcasm font>.

And yet …

I’m not going into what Jeff dubs a Doom Spiral (basically, it’s where I run with the “I suck in one thing so, obviously, I suck in All the Things and am The Worst Person Ever" - it's as fun as it sounds). Because I know now where I am and as such, I can truly see where I would like to go. And that’s important in a journey, to know where your Point A is so you can get to your Point B and C and so on.

Happy Friday, all! May you get a true picture of where you are so you can, as need be, adjust course and get to where you truly want to go.

(Gosh, I should write greeting cards with lines like that! Ha, ha!)
