Commitment

I had NO IDEA what I wanted to blog about tonight.  So I asked my dear husband, Chale, for suggestions.  His answer?  “Blog about what a funny word ‘blog’ is.  Blog, blog, blog.”  Well, THAT was no help!  So I’ve been looking through my picture file for something interesting and though I have led a pretty interesting life, I don’t have a lot of photographs.  And none of my art was calling to me.

So why don’t I just skip it today and do as Scarlet O’Hara does and think about it tomorrow?  Because I want to follow through on something.  I want to finish something I started.  I sometimes bug Chale about following through with things.  You know, the regular household stuff like putting a new trash bag in the wastebasket after emptying it.  Just little stuff but it needs to be done.  Follow through.

Yet, how many classes have I started and never finished?  How many unfinished art projects do I have hanging around my studio?  I want to finish THIS.  Thirty posts in thirty days.  It’s not really even that big of a commitment!  Just a month.  I can do this.  I can’t promise that every day will be interesting, because I’m sure THIS is riveting!!  But I’ll be here.  And I’d really love it if YOU came here, too.

      Thanks! You’d think that since I can usually talk endlessly about myself that blogging would be a breeze! But it’s sort of like art…that blank page syndrome. With that cursor blinking away, daring me to type something! I appreciate the offer for help. I’ll probably take you up on it some time! ❤

    I agree..getting used to blogging everyday is hard. But life is hard. LOL So we will just keep on one day at a time. I personally am hoping this will lead to me having a blog for a long time. I enjoy reading your blog and the others to. I don’t know that I have any great thing to share with the world, but I seem to like to get on my blog and just ramble (I really feel sometimes like I’m just talking to myself). LOL
