How easy it is to fall of the blogging bandwagon
Amazing how easy it is to continue to not blog daily once you start!
Once a habit is broken, it takes such mental reserves to get that habit back.
A boss of mine started running about 4 years into the time I worked for him. I thought it was a fad seeing as he was not a healthy-type person (!) so a few months later he made a comment and I said something like, "oh, you're still running?" and he said, "Marsh, the only thing keeping me going sometimes is knowing how incredibly hard it is to come back from a relapse".
I totally get that.
But I still don't see myself blogging daily anymore.
We've spoken some about the reasons for that.
But also there's this thing I never fully understood til now but it's something my friend Natalie said once or twice - I don't want to have to go onto Facebook or your blog to find out what's going on in your life. Just tell me.
Still, let me catch you up quickly on the last few weeks :)
We went to see Michael Buble in concert. Man, it was awesome. AWESOME. He is so naughty and fun, and was a great entertainer.
He had a support act called Naturally 7 and they were AMAZING. I now follow them on Instagram :)
Something interesting about the concert - the last time we were at that venue was at the Rod Stewart on 6 Dec 2008, the day of my trigger shot to get the twins!
Too crazy to think about, imagining those days.
It was pouring with rain and I was so glad the concert was inside! When we were at Bruce Springsteen last year, it was also pouring with rain... on us. I'm too old, or comfortable, or boring but going to a concert in the rain is just not my idea of fun.
So, a great many of you are also not blogging as much as you used to (except Laura). What's going on? Was it easy to fall off your blogging bandwagon?
(Blogging is still not dead!)
I'm working on a habit at the moment and I can't believe it's been 15 days and counting.....
Let me hit 21 days and I'll tell you about it.
Meanwhile, I think I'm going to buy the audio version of Gretchen Rubin's book. I'm quite addicted to these 4 tendencies.
Have you taken the free quiz? What's your tendency?
(I'm looking at you, Se7en!)
