On Purpose: Getting Passionate

When I read today’s prompt for the Blog-tember Challenge, I couldn’t help but think how extremely broad it seemed (in my opinion). . .

“I am passionate about ______________. “

I am passionate about so many things! I asked myself, “How can I even start to narrow this down?!” Then a thought struck me. . .

Several weeks ago, I started a series of posts, scheduled for every Friday. (Coincidence that today also happens to be a Friday? I think not!) This series is called “On Purpose.” (To get a better understanding of what it is all about, please read the introductory post here.)

On Purpose

These posts have helped me tremendously in becoming more purposeful & — perhaps even more importantly for me — being able to measure my productivity in staying purposeful & living intentionally, rather than letting life happen to me.

On Purpose

I won’t lie. It’s been a rough week for me. I don’t know why. I don’t know if I am fighting a cold or if it’s just allergies or what. Tension headaches & tiredness galore, though! Dear Lord. 😦 With that said, though, I did pretty well with last week’s three goals. . . The mountain of laundry, I have seriously procrastinated on. To be honest, as I sit here writing, it is Thursday evening & I intend to get my tush up out of this seat as soon as this post is complete & get that laundry folded! I am counting it as a win, but be sure to call me out in the comments to make sure I actually did it! 😉
