In an earlier post, I wrote about how challenging it was staying motivated to write the first draft of a book which I have been putting off for two years. Right before Spring Break, I officially hit the halfway point in writing the book. That was Saturday, April 4. It is now Monday, April 27. Today was the first time I worked on the book since taking a break from writing.
It’s incredible how quickly we can lose the momentum and progress that we have worked so hard to build.
Isn’t that how life goes, though?
I’m curious to know what other things I’m going to lose once life finds a new, post-quarantine normal. I’m hoping fitness isn’t one of them. My scale number has increased, but that it is because I am heavy lifting and packing on muscle (so I’m strangely okay with this fact). I’m hopeful that the amount of time I have not been spending on social media continues.
The question I have to ask is, “Now that it seems like we’re approaching the end of this thing, what’s worth keeping?”
Have you started doing something worth keeping? If so, what? If not, I’m just going to point out that it isn’t too late to start.
