Damn, I’m terrible at this whole blogging thing which is odd because I love to write. For some reason, it’s hard to sit down and actually do the duty; it’s almost an anxiety provoking activity (although, really, I do love writing!). I think my anxiety stems from the fact that I feel like I don’t have enough hours in the day to get the stuff I need to get done versus the stuff that needs to be done around the house. The latter seems to swallow my precious minutes of personal time, some of which could be devoted to this blog. Now, this is where you may tell me, ‘ well, Jenna, do it at night after the kids are in bed.’
Bwahaha! By that time, I’ve either fallen asleep with them or I’m drained of ALL energy, the only thing I can do is change the channels on the TV. When the evening rolls around, I am completely, utterly spent. Its all I can do to get my kids to bed, and then all I want to do is just remain immobile like Jetta the Hut for a hour or so.
I’ve joined a bible studies group and in it, received a journal of Biblical proportions (haha). I love it, I love the safe environment in which I can learn about God without any shred of judgement, but I also love that journal. Every night, I’ve managed to squeeze in a few minutes to jot down my thoughts to the different stories within the weekly session. So, I know I’m love to write, now the question is – how can I make blogging a more desirable activity? Should I jump ship and admit that it isn’t working for me? Me, do-do?
