#30DaysofFocus Project Starts Today!

If there’s been one thing I’ve always struggled with, it’s Focus. Or lack thereof. It’s my Achilles’ heel that appears Every. Single. Day. It sneaks its sly little head in while I’m playing with my daughter, offering to mold unicorns out of play dough one minute and making paper masks the next. It plagues me as I research the internet, making me forget what I was looking for in the first place: was it a slow cooker or new baby sneakers? Then, it sucks me into another rabbit hole, one filled with luscious images of interior design blogs.

I’ve always been an avid multi-tasker (yes, one of those people with ten tabs open on her browser!), but motherhood has aggravated my secret ADD ways. Although they do come in handy when you’re trying to balance a creative life and parenthood, and become especially useful when you have to get a toddler out of the house. However, my multitasking efforts often come with a price, Focus. Right now, I’m desperately seeking it in hopes that it’ll make me a better writer, a better mom, a better partner, and a better human overall.

People use social media to help them achieve personal goals ( #100dayproject, #100daysofhappiness#30dayfitnesschallenge, etc) giving them a public form of accountability and maybe even form a supportive community along the way. So why not take social media and use it as a focusing tool. What if we turn it around on its head and suddenly it becomes our biggest ally, our Focus coach?

To address this situation, I’ve decided to embark on a month-long journey to blog for the next 30 days. I’ll be writing about anything that strikes my fancy and tickles me pink or bothers me or whatever. The plan is to take action that hopefully will strengthen my flabby Focus muscle.

And if this strikes any sort of chord and you feel feel so inclined, try it yourself: Commit to something you’ve been wanting to do for a month. The hope is that we’ll all find more clarity on what’s truly important to us and maybe even find a few surprises on the way. Remember to tag your journey #30daysoffocus and share it with me @Latinfoodie. Let’s get Focused!
