Finding time to make time

I'm feeling a bit reflective today. I've been thinking lately about being able to find time to fit everything I want to do into my life. I have to admit I am not always the best with time management, sometimes I am superb with it and other times I just laze out. There is never a lack of things for me to do, but sometimes I find myself cycling through all the things I can do to occupy my time only to end up doing nothing at all. Then days and weeks pass by and I start to feel most unproductive. The easy thing to do is complain about it, the hard thing to do is change it.

I haven't been blogging much or very active on social media, and I definitely have not been writing. Sometimes I struggle with that, but I know myself well enough to know that sometimes that's just how it has to be and eventually that spark will come back to me. This year has been a real whirlwind in my personal life, in mostly good ways, so I've been telling myself that real life has been keeping me too busy for my imaginary life, meaning my stories. But that's no excuse and really what I have to do is get myself together and carve out time for everything. I'm the type of person that wants it all, but I can't have it all if I don't make room for everything, right? I've given up on a lot of things in the past, and I've stopped trying when I should have kept going, but for where I am right now I am going to actively try to do things differently. I will find time to make time!

That being said, next week I will be blogging about my upcoming book release later this month. There will be a cover release to share and I will also be giving details about my blog tour. So stayed tuned!


  1. It's hard sometimes. I try to make a short "to-do" list at the beginning of each day, with the most necessary things on top. Checking them off helps motivate me to do the next.

    1. Making lists is definitely something I like to do, the hard part is getting the things on the list done!

  2. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
    It will always be interesting to read articles from other
    authors and use something from other sites.
