How Not To Fail Africa This September

So I’m finally on to day 4 of the #30DayAfriBlogger and #BlogTemberChallenge challenges. And no, the challenge did not start four days ago. Today’s post is motivation for others like myself who feel themselves falling behind on this challenge or in life. Lol. Here are a few steps that we can take to not fail our fellow African bloggers and audiences this month (or in whichever circumstance you find yourself struggling due to procrastination, laziness, etc).

Step 1: Observe the casualties

Y’all I’ve been playing games this month. I missed one day, which then turned into two day, and which has now turned into too many to count. Now that I’ve decided to get my life back on track, I’ve been looking closely at the topics that I’ve missed and have been squeezing in writing during the day as well as setting aside real time to write.

Step 2: Turn to others for help

For me, I got caught up with work and taking my sister around during her visit to Dakar these past couple weeks. However, throughout this time I have had numerous friends and even followers encourage me to keep going. I have even been able to bounce blog ideas off of various people.

Step 3: Move forward

Keep writing! Even if you feel like it’s pointless or that no one is reading, it is essential to keep going. If going back isn’t possible, skip some days. Just make sure that you finish.

Step 4: Enjoy the process

Smile and never forget that this should be fun. Yes, it’s a challenge, but hopefully sharing your story with the world or accomplishing your goals gives you unspeakable joy. And don’t forget to give yourself a break. But obviously not to much, so that you don’t continue your unsuccessful cycle. Just remember that you still have time to accomplish your goals no matter how far behind you may have fallen. Remember that life happens, and goals can change.

I’m sure that I’m not outchea alone failing at life. Have you been struggling with one of the #AfricaMonth September blogging challenges or one of your personal goals? What are some steps you’ve taken to get back on track?

  3. Lol. I totally feel you on how one day turns into three. That’t what happened to me – was a roll,then fell off and it looked harder to get back on. Woke up this am and decided i had to get back on by fire or by force lol. So been spending the morning writing. But I also blame it on my awkward black girl binge from Sunday and Monday, lol.
