Reading Challenge Woes

Y’all! I’m so behind on my 2018 Goodreads Reading Challenge. I knew I hadn’t read as much this year with all the strenuous editing of my soon-to-be-published book, but I didn’t realize how behind I was! Check out my full list HERE.

Reading Challenge

I’m not even halfway to my goal and I only have two months left!

Friends, I’m not going to make it.

I’m trying to be okay with that, as I hate not finishing a goal. But it happens.

I’m of the opinion that wallowing in guilt over not following through just keeps me tied in knots and fosters self-loathing. Well, that’s a bit extreme. I don’t hate myself, but I do disappoint myself with my lack of discipline at times.

So I choose grace over guilt.

I choose to celebrate progress instead. Let’s face it, progress on a goal means that there is forward movement. It means that I’m not stagnating! Woohoo!

So my encouragement to you is to keep moving forward. Take a step. Progress is something to celebrate.

What is it you will choose to celebrate progress over?

  1. Sherrinda, sometimes life just gets in the way of what we want to accomplish and we have to stop and take care of other needs. I’m sure you know this, so I’m preaching to the choir. Maybe I’m just reminding myself, too. I can tell you are a God-oriented person and that is so important. He guides us when we ask Him which should give us peace of mind and heart, as long as we trust in Him. You might just add those books you haven’t gotten to to your next goal. Meanwhile be happy you were able to do what you have so far. Live the moment!!

  2. Live the moment! I love that! Even though I know I am not going to make this reading goal, I know I will add progress to it. Fall and winter seem to spur more reading time…those earlier nights and cozy fires. Thanks so much for your encouragement!
