One of my favorite moments in the day is when I am able to be completely captured in focus of my purpose. Sometimes, I can flow in that captured state for hours. Other days it is just a passing moment that I have to fight for to have. Regardless I try to focus daily on the things I feel called to do. At times that can be challenging. The reality is that if you will make your passion and purpose a priority, you will make time to capture some focused time daily to work towards it.
One of the reasons I love the October writing challenge is that it challenges me to capture a few minutes of my day for 31 days to write. I feel like writing is something I am supposed to do. It brings me a release that I have not found in other places when I really get in the flow. However, writing is the first thing to go by the wayside when I am busy with life.
This morning while I was getting ready for work, another author captured my attention with how important it is to write daily, consistently. Not just for 31 days, but to set aside time daily for that purpose. I have heard it again and again, but today it just captured my focus. I have several writing projects that have been sitting for way too long. I need to allow a period of time in my daily schedule to chip away at it, just as I do with other things of purpose. I need to continue this habit, even outside of the #Write31Day challenge, even if it doesn’t go on this blog so that I can finish the projects deep inside my heart. I have to capture the moment, instead of just waiting for it to happen.
This blog is part of a #Write31Days series on Focus with prompts by #FMFParty. Write 31 Days is an online writing challenge, where bloggers pick one topic and write a post on that topic every day. Five Minute Fridays provides prompts and encourages writers to free write for five minutes on the prompt.
