It couldn’t have come at a better time to inspire me, as we are on Day 17 and I am struggling with what to write about today. I have tons of ideas and outlines to work from, but nothing was really speaking to me today.
So, I am taking a deep breath and will refocus on my “why” or two “whys” in my case.
“Why did I take on the Challenge to write a blog post everyday for 30 days?”
“Why did I decide to create the blog “Pittsburgh Grammy”?
My forces are scattered lately, with a lot going on in my life, especially with the Holiday Season. Maybe this was not the best time to take on the challenge, but a commitment is a commitment and I plan to see it through. My purpose for joining the Challenge was to get me to stop procrastinating about writing for my blog. I started out with the greatest of intentions and they just all fell by the wayside with life getting in the way. I need to stop making excuses. Everyone is busy and is juggling numerous responsibilities at once.
I felt at the beginning that writing each day would help to create a habit that would just come naturally. If I look forward to putting my ideas together and posting them daily, it should become a normal routine for me, such as brushing my teeth in the morning. I need to embrace this as the new normal for me, just a part of my daily routine.
Now to refocus on the 2nd Why, why I decided to create the blog in the first place. I wanted to write about two things that I felt passionate about, being a Grammy and Pittsburgh, the city that I love. In reviewing some of my more recent posts, I have talked about being a Grammy and about my own Mother and Grandmother. I have come to realize that I have not written very much at all about my fair City of Pittsburgh. This is where I need to spend some time and focus more on what I love about Pittsburgh and share this with my audience.
