Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

IWSG Baby Steps


Even though they don’t have anything in common, doubt can be in a very big conflict with faith.

Hello friends (smile) Wahoo, it’s the first Wednesday of the month where IWSG members are blessed to share our thoughts and support other writers.

I extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to Alex and our November co-hosts:

Tyrean Martinson http://tyreanswritingspot.blogspot.com/
Karen Walker http://karenfollowingthewhispers.blogspot.com/
Denise Covey http://dencovey.blogspot.com/
Stephen Tremp http://authorstephentremp.blogspot.com/

I usually write encouragement about keeping the faith walking or crawling through things and stuff or those Y moments.

I have an insecurity this month that makes me smile because its self imposed.

There are times I put too much pressure on myself to write.

There are times I doubt my ability to complete a month of continuous writing.

Still a no-go to complete NaBloPoMo for a whole month.

Yay, I did complete the 30 day A to Z Challenge, by the grace of God. (smile)

There are times I unplug to have peace of mind from writing.

Baby steps. Baby steps as my faith is tested is another way to keep moving forward.

I’m learning to baby step my way to write shorter posts some days.

I’m learning to baby step my way to a better writing plan. (wink)

It is, what it is, until it’s not.

Keeping the faith and baby steps help to calm my angst and breathe easier. (smile)

Blessings and enjoy your day!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

I also tend to put too much pressure on myself to try to get things done. Sometimes there just isn’t enough time for everything and I have to remember not to get down on myself when I can’t do everything. One thing at a time. Baby steps, as you said. It doesn’t matter if we go slow as long as we keep going.

I think you hit it with shorter posts. Write shorter pieces. Even if it’s part of a larger whole. We can get overwhelmed with a huge project that will take months. But the shorter ones, the baby steps, we can do those and feel goo we’ve accomplished something.
