Welcome to the new series I’m diving into!
Yesterday I posted a short intro video where you got to see me, real life and all, talk a little bit about where I want to go with this. Have you ever met someone trying to pursue their craft and they said they have more time than they know what to do with?
Yeah, me neither.
Everyone is so busy, either with a job, with family, with other obligations, that it can seem impossible to actually pursue what you love to do. Or maybe even what you feel called to do.
I know, for me personally, between having two kids (plus a daycare kid), my dogs and chickens and husband and church and Bible studies, I feel like I have no time left over to do what I love. To write. Whether it’s working on one of my novels or writing a Bible study or beta reading, these things always seem to fall from the back burner off the stove and I have to dig them out again to work on them.
What is the secret to finding and making time? How can we start to reclaim a little bit in order to get those words on the page or paint on the canvas or whatever else moves you? How do we maintain some semblance of balance in life when we’re torn in 100 different directions every day?
Sometimes it can seem impossible, but I promise it’s not. I want to talk about it. I want to explore it. I want to have a discussion.
So let’s dive in and talk about this.
What is your biggest obstacle to pursuing your craft?
