Not

For awhile I was reading blogs that said, "I don't have much to say. What should I say?" And I thought, huh, other folks out there are having a block, too. It's not just me. I chalked it up to exhaustion, to busyness, to pre-occupation with other things -- call process, child, looking for a house, life. I credited it to preaching more often and sinking into the office.

But I realized that there were other things not getting done, too. I'd get to the office and think, "Oh -- I have to call... and I have to do..." and the next thing I knew it was time to go home and none of those things had gotten done. I couldn't say what had, only what had not.

Now I read books and blogs and newsletters full of fabulousness from others and I hope that it will inspire me to do instead of not. I'm writing this, which is a start, but the stress-pain is back in my shoulder, even after a massage, and the piles around me grow and the books that were helping are back on the shelf. So I'm about to shut the door and do, instead of not.

Good for you and good luck!

I was procrastinating something yesterday and finally actually hid my computer's wireless card so I could get it done without interruption from the internet!

oh, i am so right there with you! It's 2 pm, and I've been up since 7, but I have no idea what I've accomplished in that time except for take a step arobics class. Unfortunately, I am not Christina Aguilera, so "exercise" cannot be the only thing on my "to do" list....
