I have not gotten into a daily habit of Spilling. Establishing habits for me, especially new ones, is very difficult. I seem to do well for a couple of days… then I get distracted. Like with all the information that I have to consider about blogging. There is no point in me going into details but the more I look into whether I am on the right format for me, the more things I find I should consider for the long run. And I do see the value in at least attempting to have a plan for the future.
I had decided to stick with one blog provider when I found that another has a lot of behind the scenes set-up options that make my blog easier for people to find and interact with. So for the past few nights I have been going back and forth between my old blog set up and a possible new (one) to see if it would be worth the change over. At first I decided no, the new blog was not as user friendly to set up and it was looking like it would be a giant struggle… but it had lots of cool stuff that would improve readability organizing my blog in a way that would just make much more sense. Sadly, this struggle kept me from spilling. Silly girl that I am. I tell you to take 5 minutes if that is all you have. What do I do? I don’t follow my own advise.
So after another night of struggling with setting up this new blog, I finally remembered the point. The point of this blog, of the practice I let fall by the wayside, yet again. To take just a bit of time if that is all I have and spill it. So here I am. If like me you are caught up in a project, or chores, or life in general and have been forgetting or just plain putting off your journaling practice, all I ask is for you to reconsider. For just five minutes (or more, if you can spare it). Doodle, journal about your day, tape pictures… just do a bit. You might be surprised how good that little bit of peace you get from just knowing you took time to stay with it can give you!
