The truth is, I spent pretty much all day yesterday trying to get into blogger so that I can write my posts (yeah, I write them on the day). But alas, I was stuck without an internet connection until about an hour ago.
So here I am, hoping that my connection doesn't fail me again before I get to post.
As 2014 went on and more things kept going wrong, it was almost too easy to focus on what I didn't have than what I did have or was capable of doing.
Luckily for me, though, I remembered this one thing that I've always believed in.
No matter what, there's always something that we can do. No, the circumstances might not be ideal or there might be about a million things that might be beyond my reach.
But there's always something within my reach and I can use that to the best of my ability.
So when things were absolutely bleak and I had almost nothing else left, I turned back to my writing after almost a year of writing very little. You'd think that in those circumstances, I'd get very little writing done.
You'd be wrong.
I wrote 60k words in December alone. And I've been averaging 25k per month ever since. (Even though my return to internet and business means I have less writing time.)
But that, my friends, is amateurish stuff. This guy's a master:
Needless to say, yesterday, I was tempted to be annoyed when my internet connection went. But you know what? I'm blessed to have it on whichever days I do have it working. On other days, I'm just going to mess around with my shiny new ideas and add some words to my older ones. Because that I can do without being connected to the internet.
Do you have a fall-back when everything else goes wrong? Want to tell us about it?
