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.
