I'm doing quite well and I've been able to sleep better.
This A-Z blogging challenge is really pushing me to be more deliberate in my writing. Writing is taking more thought and effort with this A-Z approach. I think it will benefit me in the long run.
There have been too many times when I failed to put in a 100% effort. Music; playing the violin and viola, and singing felt naturally easy for me. I didn't have to put in a full effort to
perform at an acceptable level. Many other musicians around me had to work a lot harder than I did. Not putting in the effort required probably played a role in how my unstable mental health derailed my dreams of becoming a professional musician
Writing too, has been fun and the words and ideas have been flowing quite easily.
With this alphabetic progression of themes it is not as easy as writing whatever comes to mind. I am convinced that the discipline and effort I have to employ now will help me complete the various writing projects sitting on my desk and in my computer. Failure to give it my all will eventually result in my getting bored and not finishing anything.
Effort; partner to discipline, determination, and dedication. Maintaining a consistent level of these things will be more of a challenge than this A-Z thing. I'm going to need a lot of God's help to keep up my effort level.
