You're meant to do what you love, aren't you??

I know we are meant to do things that make us happy, and surround ourselves with people who bring joy to our lives, but sometimes we can get so stuck in the everyday and mundane, that all that goes to the wayside, and we just end up existing.

I often feel as if I am just existing. I get myself stuck in holes, in ruts, that I struggle to get out of.

Lately, I haven't felt so much that I am in a hole, and if I do fall in, I can get out. I've been feeling pretty good about me and my life for a little while, but I still feel as if things are missing.

I popped over to Sonia's blog the other day, and she's participating in a Blog Hop based on the topic of "time". Oh my, how I could write about that at the moment. I'm not going to go into detail, but basically I have trying to get myself into some sort of routine to just fit everything in, and keep myself sane. I mean trying to manage the kids and their stuff, the cleaning and organising of the house and then trying to find time for me (Cal has to fit somewhere in there too). I have no idea how working mums do it!!!

I am on my way though. I participated in The Organised Housewife's 20 day challenge, and that gave me a bit of a kick start and got me to change my thinking about a few things in relation to cleaning and tidying. And I have got myself a basic routine to follow for the week to allow me to get a couple of hours a day (not in the night once everyone has gone to bed) to spend on me. We'll see if it works.

My plan is to start properly tomorrow. October 1 is my D-day. There is a whole LIST of things that I would like to do just for me. Like sewing, painting, exploring my photography, exercising, writing, creating. I am going to MAKE time to do the things that make me happy.
October is IT!

In there was writing. Now I'm no novelist, but I do enjoy tapping away at the keyboard here. I just don't do it that often, and because I don't do it that often, I'm not very good at it. I would love my writing to be better, and I would love to Blog more often. So I have joined the Blogtoberfest 2012 challenge to Blog every day in October.

They say that it takes 21 days to form a habit, hopefully by the end of 30 I will be into more of a Blogging routine as well as doing more of what I love. If I happen to have a clean and tidy house at the end of it, that's a bit of a bonus.

If you want to join me on a blogging adventure, pop over to I Saw You Dancing who is hosting Blogtoberfest 2012. There is a linky list to join, with a tonne of wonderful bloggers that you may be able to connect with and be inspired by.

Good luck to me (no one else will wish me good luck, so I may as well - LOL), and good luck to you if you decide to join me.

Do what you love. Bring joy to your life.

Great post Kirst!

I love your list of things you would like to do just for YOU. I really should do a list like that too. I find that I do so much with my girls, as well as try and keep the house clean & tidy, I feel drained by the time they are in bed, that I don't have the energy into doing something for just for myself.

Good luck with Blogtober!
