Load Lightened

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Last Tuesday, I announced my new "work week" schedule here - just a minor change, but one that is proving helpful to me. I originally set up a blogging schedule to organize my thoughts. Clearly, I love blogging. I love writing. I almost always have some kind of story or blog post running through my head.

Totally (not) me.

If I don't give the words a place to land then, well, I don't know. Probably my husband would get tired of listening to me.

Bless his heart.

So I have this blog, a "schedule," and because of real life I tweak it every now and then. For now, the schedule change seems to be working. One week to accomplish a non-essential but hopefully interesting task is a reasonable amount of time. Also, I like the creative freedom of having Thursdays more open. We'll see where this goes.

My point? Oh yes, there was a point.

I'm thinking a lot about changes this week. How do you know when it is time to make a change in your life? Do you wait until something is forced upon you, or do you just go for it?

I think I am a natural waiter, but lately I've been taking more "go for it" actions. Just little things, but it is kind of cool . . .What about you?

  1. As I was typing up a blog post last night, my husband
    commented, “Nobody can have THAT many words.” ha. If he only knew…if I had more
    time, I would write far more. So I totally get what you’re saying here. I'm
    constantly having to readjust my schedule, and still haven't gotten it exactly

    Love your post on “Ways to Help Alabama.” I still can’t
    believe the devastation. I was surprised to see so much even along I-65
    yesterday in our drive from the Huntsville area to Auburn and back. Those were
    some long, mean storms.

  2. Ahh... a schedule... that never occurred to me! Maybe that's why I got so overwhelmed! Thanks for the tip. I'm your latest follower.

  3. Oh, I am loving this blog and so glad I found you. Very impressed with the writing schedule! (I don't have one!) Thanks so much for your comment at THC.

  4. Thanks! I really liked your "blogaholic" post. I can so relate!

  5. Thanks, Lisa. We were talking about the storms last night at dinner with some friends. So many tragic stories. I also have friends living along the Mississippi River who are dealing with flooding. Lots to pray for right now.

  6. Oooh change happens when I get to a point of being uncomfortable. After all, why else would I change?
