Trying not to be distracted by everyday tasks - Staying Inspired

I’m trying to run a very small woman’s economic project in Uganda. Basically, it’s me and a few other people. I’m wake up most days overwhelmed and go to bed at night with an inventory in my mind of what I didn’t get done. The last few days I’ve told myself I have too many project tasks to do and don’t have time to journal. The next moment I tell myself I need to learn to communicate, I have much to say but the words seem locked inside of me. I tell others and myself “I don’t like to write.”

This morning I read assignment 3. I’m inspired and will do the assignment. I need to learn to communicate with clarity and confidence both with the written word and verbally.

A good morning.

community?

Do you mean the community I wrote about in VOF Week 3?

I read about a young man in Uganda who had sponsorship for his education. I was able to get his email and we started to communicate. I started helping his wife while he when to school. After about a year we decided to start working with the women refugees and that is how I'm now part of their community.
