I’ve been toying with the idea of writing through October. I blogged through the month of September last year and enjoyed it. This year is quite different though. I’ve been going out at least three times a week on work and it’s taken some adjustment after so many years of being at home. I could always make the excuse that I’m busy. But so are all the other fabulous bloggers I know who balance work, babies, and manage to blog regularly too.

Busy is a choice. It’s also an excuse for not doing what you love.

So without further ado, I’m throwing my hat into the ring for the #write31days challenge. Since it’s a little difficult to categorize my posts, I’ve chosen the category ‘Too Awesome To Categorize‘ and hence my choice of Β theme – 31 Days of Awesome. Yes, I’m aware that it’s not grammatically right – but I just liked the sound of it.

What can you expect – 31 posts of my usual musings. What’s awesome about them you ask? Me, of course!

Considering that I’m writing this post on 3rd October when I should have written it on the 1st, you’ll start to wonder where Day 1 and Day 2 went. They’ll appear soon enough. πŸ˜› (updated: they did!).

Isn’t it sad how we can often start to do something we love, then start getting so caught up in it that we get stressed. What do we lose in the process? Joy.

I love writing and blogging. But it’s easy to get so caught up with all the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of blogging that I forget how much I love it and lose the joy of it all.

Today, I’m making a special effort to breakthrough my ‘busy-ness‘ and reclaim the joy of blogging.

Busy is a choice. Stress is a choice. Joy is a choice. Choose well. – Anne Voskamp
