This post is late, or why pulling things together is so hard

I came to a realization today. I’d remembered that I’d forgotten to write a post for yesterday. Sigh. I began wondering why I couldn’t just pull it together and stay on top of this blogging thing. After all, I made a calendar with what posts I wanted for when. I just had to write them. Why was this so hard?

But then I had the realization. It’s so hard because it’s not the only thing I’m trying to pull together. If all I had to worry about was my blog, then yes, it would be easy. But it’s not the only thing. Instead, I have my blog, my family, work, church, books I’m reading, a new novel I’m writing, cleaning, crafting, and the list goes on and on. That’s why I’m struggling pulling things together: because there are so many things that need to be pulled in! It’s like the difference between a twenty-four piece puzzle and a one thousand piece puzzle. The few the pieces, the easier to put it together!

So maybe I need to look at downsizing to a smaller puzzle. Or I need to figure out how to better sort and juggle the puzzle I currently have. Things to think about, anyway, and not to beat myself up about!

(On a completely different note, I saw Minions today. It is hilarious. I knew it was going to be good when I was laughing at the opening credits and I honestly thought my sister was going to pass out from lack of oxygen from laughing so hard at that point. When you’re like that that early into the movie, you know it’s going to be good. I would highly recommend Minions.)
