Keep adjusting those sails

Another weekend is coming to an end – one where I was as willfully unproductive as possible – and I look forward to a far more self-disciplined week. Well, maybe not so much ‘look forward’ as ‘recognize as necessary’.

This afternoon, in a limited show of productivity, I caved in to Facebook tyranny and created a ‘page’ so that I could continue automatically send my posts out to the world (or at least the limited world on my social networks). This step will hopefully also get me to focus more on the writing that I’d planned to do this year. Being largely homebound for the next few weeks until my husband is able to travel has the unexpected benefit of leaving me with more time to focus on projects beyond blogging and volunteering. I chose to create that page in that spirit. Now we’ll see how it develops.

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”

— William Arthur Ward

As I’ve noted before, I’m pragmatic, but I’m also human – I complain about the wind (and unwanted FB changes), but adjust the sails & keep moving forward, anyway. Vita perseverat.
