For the last two days, my movements have been limited thanks to throwing out my back, pinching a nerve or whatever it is I have done that causes limited movement and extreme pain to me.
However, that being said after having a great conversation with a dear friend and soul sister, Ellie, we talked about our writing. We discussed how upset we were about our lack of work and that it wasn’t a lack of wanting to work. Upon that, we made a plan to overcome it all.
We are both holding each other accountable to write at least 500 words a day. That isn’t an extreme amount and it shouldn’t be. Granted both of us are capable of much more, it is better to start out with smaller goals and win at those and then increase them, then jump to large ones and fail.
These smaller goals are there to help us build up momentum and start winning at our days. As we go then we will grow the goal until we both feel more in our zone. At that point, we will be back to working the way we both want to.
I think when it comes to hitting dark spots like we both did, it helps to have another person to keep you accountable. That way you can help one another up out of it.
I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have Ellie in my life. The fact that we can keep pushing each other and be there for one another is an amazing thing. I know that we will do amazing things, especially if we stick together.
As I am still in a lot of pain, I will keep this blog post brief so that I can get my 500 words in before my back will no longer let me work up at my desk.
Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
