Welp, I have undertaken yet another personal challenge (feel free to roll your eyes if you need to)! I’m linking up with The Nester for her 31 days writing challenge. I’ve followed her blog for years and when I saw that Ann Voskamp participated last year, I figured it might be worthwhile. I have never linked up with another blog because this blog has been for the sole purpose of me just blurting out whatever was on my mind and not adding another stress commitment to my life. But, I think writing on one topic for 31 days might be a great way to really push myself to be creative and to think differently. So, here we go!

Every day for 31 days I’ll be posting on my personal endeavor to get it together. I don’t want this to be just about me, but about glorifying God in the way I live my life.  Since Jack was born I’ve basically been floating through life without any real purpose besides keeping the house livable, my people fed and the baby alive. I have struggled to be productive and find my way. I have started radical diets, intense work out plans, rigid cleaning schedules, photo-a-day challenges, meal-planning and budgeting strategies, crafting and I even opened up an online store. These have all been attempts to break up the monotony of my days and work towards a goal, I think, but none of them have lasted. I lose interest. When Jack was younger and not sleeping, I gave myself an out on almost everything because I thought (and still do) that sleep deprivation was a good reason to not attempt anything other than staying alive.

HOWEVER, Jack is easier now and I’ve started some habits that have actually been sticking. One of those is doing a daily prayer and Bible study time during the morning nap. Because of this consistent quiet time with God I have begun to see a lot of things in a different way, including this blog and what I should be focusing on. How I should be spending my time. And how I can get it together the way He wants me to.

I’d love to encourage any of  my friends who may have been feeling the same way (lost, floaty, directionless, etc) to think about getting it together in your own ways during this 31 days and let’s do it together!
