Am I quitting or stopping?

I have decided the great "one blog a day" challenge is over. I know, I know collective "ah". 😊 And although I know it is not the lost of a great daily literature delivery it has be thinking (again I know huge surprise).

When it is a good decision to stop something and when did you just convince yourself it is okay to quit?

I have what I believe are a lot of good reasons to stop blogging daily. It was never something I planned to do indefinitely. It was an exercise I took on after watching a CreativeLive video. But a couple of days ago I did think okay I will do it for 21 days. My thinking there was 21 days make a habit, or so I am told.

And yesterday I was a little disappointed that I did not have more time to devote to writing the blog about a subject I thought was really important. But I was able to comment on a powerful important subject.

Also, some things have had to fall off during this challenge. Things I would consider important. No but there, there are only so many hours in a day and those things are important.

This evening I am going to have to rush back out in a few minutes. So again I do not have the time I would like buuuut I was still able to write this blog.

All good reason, I think, but maybe I just think that because I want to think that. How do I know I am not just justifying quitting? I heard it said once that trying to analyze yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.

For the record, I do not know the answer to the question I pose. It it something I wrestle with often. When do you keep going despite things? When do you try harder to keep them going? When do walk away?

I have really enjoyed how thinking about my blog that I "have to write" that day has forced me to think about my day. It has opened up some interesting perspectives. Hmmm, maybe I will write a blog about that to explain it better. 😊
