I didn't have many facts today. The only thing I could come up with is a few pointers.
-Don't do a Kitchen renovation in the winter, especially if you live in a cold climate. There's snow outside my window. Just to give you an idea.
-With small children. Yeah, not many places to go when it's cold. Plus, you know it's super cold when even the kids don't want to go outside.
-Don't do the first point and also decide that your 2 1/2 year old is ready for a big boy bed. I'm not going there.
So, yeah, it's el nutsy at my house. Writing/revising is slow with no quiet time. Yes, I'm frustrated.
What's with the title, you ask?
Well, on Wednesday, it snowed here, about 6 inches. As I was taking my daughter to school, a guy was running in full gear down the middle of the street (the sidewalks were not shoveled). I thought to myself, dang, what dedication. I thought this for many reasons--I know I would not be doing that. I dislike snow, cold, and running. Wait, let me clarify. I like running if it involves a Wii remote, in the comfort of my warm family room. I still highly dislike snow and cold.
It got me thinking. Dedication and passion. I know what that feels like. I get it. I feel this when I write. I always want to do it no matter how I feel or the weather for that matter. I want to keep doing it, pushing myself beyond my expectations. There will be times of doubt (snowstorms), but I must plow through it and not ignore the little burn in my heart that wants me to continue-- to keep going, writing everyday, aiming for that goal and pleasing my soul.
Are you ignoring the burn in your heart?
Any weekend plans?
