The Sunday Salon #69: Trying to Find My Way Back

The       Sunday

Even though I am very slow with completing books,  I thought it would be fun to track my reading progress each week. The Sunday Salon is  an online reading group where all the participants set aside time to read every Sunday and blog about the experience.

Since my last Sunday Salon blog post, I completed my first book of 2011.  I really loved Corelli's Mandolin. You can find my review here.   It felt good to be able to complete a review because I think writing something on the blog is a good step in finding my way back to blogging regularly.  I still need to sign up for reading challenges in which I want to participate.  With other obligations and my general sense of not living up to my expectations, I can be pretty hard on myself.  In those intense moments of self-criticism, I have thought of giving up on the blog because I am not good enough.  When I come to this space, I really do love what I find and the peace I get from typing.  Even if those moments are short, I still treasure them and will continue.

Here's to showing up with what you have, when you can, and not beating yourself up for not doing  more!
