If…..Then- Final Reflections of SOL18- Day 31

I have to admit, this year’s SOL challenge has not been as fruitful as the ones I have participated in previously.  Allow me to reflect on why.

If I had made my Slices more of a priority, then I would not have posted almost always at the very end of the day.

If I had written my Slices earlier in the day, then I wouldn’t have felt so rushed.

If I had not felt so rushed, then I would have spent more time refining my writing.

If I had spent more time refining my writing, then I might have had more visitors comment on my Slices.

If I more people share their insight, then I usually want to take more care in pleasing my audience.

If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I might not have gotten to fulfill my other goal of morning quiet time in prayer during Lent.

If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I would have taken time away from the once-in-a-lifetime trip to NYC with my family celebrating graduation.

If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I definitely would’ve missed some precious sleep.

If had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I wouldn’t have gotten to read and comment on others.  What fun that was!

If I had tried to make my Slices a priority, then I might have resented the process.

So…all that analysis to say…while I realize that there were many things I could’ve done differently to make this year’s challenge more impactful, I will let myself off the hook and hope that I can try to prioritize better next year.

One thought on “If…..Then- Final Reflections of SOL18- Day 31

  1. I love this “if then” format as reflection. This year I got a little overwhelmed with reading other people’s posts. Sometimes I just kept on reading and reading, but then didn’t always comment. I also found myself getting nervous to comment. Like my comment wouldn’t be good enough. So weird, I know! I’ve enjoyed reading your posts this month 🙂
