…I couldn’t stay away.
Wicked Wednesday #15 Boundaries: We all have our boundaries, whether it’s in our professional, personal or sex lives. We all have things we will do, and things we will never do. Setting your boundaries is one thing, but making it clear to another is something different. Please share your thoughts and/or stories about boundaries.
I have a problem setting myself limits in life. Actually, I don’t have problems setting limits as much as I have a problem keeping to them. When I find something new that interests me it can become something of an obsession. Hours at a time are given up to my new discovery. Just two examples – when I learnt how to crochet it was all I did, morning, noon and night. One particular day I spent 18 hours crocheting a long cardi, which I never wore, and six months later I undid it to make something else. When I found MOOCs (online courses) I signed up for everything that interested me – and because of the way they work I’d often complete a six week course in a few days. One good thing to come out of doing a fiction one was that at least it got me writing again 🙂
I’m finding the same thing happening now with this blog. I love what I’m doing, I love the interaction with people, I love the memes but I’ve found over the last couple of weeks I’m putting so much pressure on myself to post all the time that I’m getting annoyed with myself if I can’t produce something. When I started out I had no plans to post every day. Three or four times a week would be great. That was mainly because I didn’t think I’d have enough different ideas for posts (turns out I was wrong about that).
Yesterday I said I was going to take a few days off – I can’t even do that! Truth is I miss it too much. But I’m going to try and stop feeling bad if I don’t post something.
And the weather’s been so bad I couldn’t go out. I spent some time editing some more photos. Here’s one I really like
