Blogging Insights – New Format #25 – Carpe Diem

Today’s quote from Dr. Tanya:
Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Take the moment and make it perfect.

Reading Dr. Tanya’s explanation, I realize once again, that I am not the norm. I do not have tons of blogging topics saved in my drafts folder. I believe, I have 2. They are responses to prompts that I wanted to reply to, but never did. I guess I should just delete them.

Before retirement, I did live by the idea of getting something done right away, in whatever time I had. Now, I live differently. I don’t think I have many perfect moments any longer. I try daily to make the best of my days. I look for things to be grateful for. If I want to do something that I can do safely, I do seize the moment. I don’t live with the idea of making things perfect.

Each cold evening, I decide if I need a hot chocolate. It is a beverage I enjoy. Then I sit down with my computer or iPad and read blogs. I typically have 40 + to read between visits to WordPress. When something sparks my interest, I seize the moment and write a post. If I take too long reading, then I put off writing until the next time. I don’t need the time I have for blogging to be perfect. I just enjoy the time I spend reading and writing. I could easily spend five or six hours on blogging. That feels like I have to neglect something else if I do, though.

Perfect is not a part of my vocabulary.

  1. I have 2 “drafts.” One is an ongoing song list for SLS, updated each week when Jim adds another, so I don’t forget to do the next one. The other is my A-Z outline for April that I did in November. I don’t have draft posts ~ if I don’t get to a prompt before bedtime, I delete it!

  2. Same here, I don’t try for perfectly perfect.
    I do a lot of the prompt challenges, but it takes me so long sometimes I never post them. I should delete them, but I can’t find where my draft posts are anymore. Oh well, I get done what I can. 🙂
