First of all, I want to thank you for your visits and for being a part of my journey!
Thank you for taking the time to read my joys, struggles, hurdles, and victories as I journey with my good Father here on earth.
You may not believe what I’m going to say, but it’s true…
You matter to me.
That said, I would like to recommit myself to “our” relationship.
Project 365: Then and Now
On my post Day 7: Why Am I Writing? , I mentioned that I would like to share the first year of my journey as a new wife.
I also mentioned how my desire to share the first 365 days of my life as a missus is different from the project I did in the past where I wrote daily for one year.
Yup, I did it before.
365 posts in one year.
Several years ago, I decided to blog as a last resort to win a losing battle — a relationship that was doomed to end from Day 1.
Now that I am THE happy recipient of the Lord’s miracle — being married to a man of God who is loving, caring, and accepts me for everything that I was, I am, and I will be, I initially decided to proclaim the Lord’s goodness to this victory — His victory.
So, you may be wondering…
Why am I reading this recommitment post if you, Mama Sel, plan to pursue writing anyway?
As much as I want to follow through with my initial commitment and just like with any other type of relationship, it is only fair to you and my God to level our expectations to avoid disappointments and frustrations.
When I did Project 365 several years back, I had a part-time writing gig on the side, a helper to do the household chores, and fewer children. I was much younger and stronger. I had the time and the strength to (stay up late) and write every day.
Many years and countless pounds later, I tried to write each day but my bandwidth isn’t as high as it used to be.
I have more
demanding children, no house helper, and a semi-full-time job that will soon turn into a full-time gig.
In other words…
I am a full-time mother.
I am a full-time homemaker.
I am a full-time professional.
The years have taken its toll on me and I’m not as strong as I used to be.
But because writing has played such a major role in my life not to mention one of the ways to share God’s faithfulness to the future generations, I am committing to posting AT LEAST once a week.
Like I said earlier, I want to set things straight not only with you but also with my God. He is, after all, the primary reason I have this blog.
How about you?
Have you committed to something you cannot follow through? Is there something you need to recommit to someone?
It’s better late than never. I encourage you to take the first step now and share with us your thoughts in the comment section 👇
