I realized that if I'm really going to do these things every day, I really need to make sure I do them earlier in the day. Last night I had to stay up later than I wanted reading to finish things. It's harder to focus on reading when I'm tired, and therefore tougher to get things done. So I walked first thing, and read a decent amount of Jesus the Christ too. I still went later than I planned, but it was a little better than yesterday.
So far I am enjoying the process. It feels good to have a goal and to be working toward it. Having twins knocked me for a bit of a loop. It's a lot harder than I thought and definitely more time consuming than I planned. As such, I've had to set other interests and hobbies to the side, which caused some loss of identity and purpose. Don't get me wrong, I love the dad identity, and being a dad is deeply fulfilling. But even parents need to be growing in other ways. Therefore, it's nice to have this a part of something I'm working for. It's deepened my sense of purpose, and given me more personal meaning.
Tomorrow is 6 year old kid's birthday. Hard to believe he's that big. The years have and are flying by!
