Here’s the thing. Life’s been busy and I’ve been thinking a lot about writing. It’s not something I have a ton of time for, but it’s something I enjoy when it’s consistent.
Seth Godin says:
“I’m encouraging each one of you to have (a blog). Not to have a blog to make money, because you probably won’t. Not to have a blog, because you’ll have millions and millions of readers, because you probably won’t.
But to have a blog because of the discipline it gives you, to know that you’re going to write something tomorrow. Something that might not be read by many people—it doesn’t matter—it will be read by you.
If you can build that up, you will begin to think more clearly. You will make predictions. You will make assertions. You will make connections. And there they will be, in type, for you to look at a month or a year later.
This practice of sharing your ideas to people who will then choose or not choose to share them helps us get out of our own head, because it’s no longer the narrative inside. It’s the narrative outside, the narrative that you’ve typed up, that you’ve cared enough to share.”
After this risk taking, travel filled and lofty goal accomplishing year, I feel like I have something to say. I feel like there’s lots to say, but it’s slightly jammed up from neglect. It’s been months (years?) since I’ve written and I need to break the dam.
It might be obvious, but have major difficulty sticking with any daily practice – aside from caring for my young kiddos and showing up to work – and I’m hoping to make a daily effort. No matter how short and “blurby” it might be.
