NaBloPoMo Day 10

so I am late the NaBloPoMo party.  But today's prompt was an excellent one, and explains everything about why I am late.

"What is the hardest part of a big project: getting the energy to begin, finding the time to work on it, or feeling down that it's over?"

Definitely for me, the energy to begin.   I can work my way all around a project except for actually beginning.   Writing sermons, for example.   I can read my head full of discussions, blogposts, write liturgy, etc. etc.  But getting that first sentence down...

Or take the yoga videos on my desk.  Right now I have an excuse, because I can't walk right now, let alone stand on two feet, (or one)....but I LOVE yoga.  So I bought two beautiful videos to help me with a home practice---six months ago.  They aren't even out of the wrapper.  

Cleaning toilets.  Well, o.k., hopefully not a BIG project, but a constant project, cleaning house.  I can find all sorts of things to do instead of.  Until I can't stand it anymore.  

I love thinking about the project at hand.  Dreaming it, seeing it, wondering about it....but getting started. 

Oh my.
