Live and learn. This is week 2 down, and as I stated previously, I’m always one step behind those that began on-time. This was not the kind of week I would care to have many of. Productivity?… Eeh
Everything suffered because…
- The kids were out of school both Monday (holiday) and Friday (staff development day)
- I got called to the school during my usual WIP work time for a kid issue on Wednesday
- I had to handle kid birthday stuff on Thursday
- Family matters took over ALL of my Friday and Saturday
What did I have left after all of that? Not much. And I still had to get my blog posts done in there somehow. Saying a prayer and hoping the Lord shows mercy on me. On top of all those road blocks, my story is not cooperating. I feel it’s trying to tell me something, but what, I’m not exactly sure. I need something to jog me free and launch me onto the right path.
Wait for it… wait for it…
What I did manage to accomplish: 2374 post words (not including this one), 930 on the WIP and A LOT of quality time with many different family members. So all in all it was still a good week. Not what I was hoping for my writing side of life, but hopefully next week will find me back on track.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit — Rest if you must, but don’t quit.
Life is strange with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a fellow turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don’t give up though the pace seems slow — You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a fair and faltering man, Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor’s cup, And he learned too late when night came down, How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out — The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar, So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, — It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
