I sat down at my computer ready to start another blog. Only I couldn’t decide whether to write about a little of this or a little of that. Really, as if there’s a difference. Suddenly it occurred to me that I’ve actually written a weekly blog for the past 35 weeks. This may mean nothing to you, but I find this rather astonishing. Here’s why.
When I first kicked around the idea of doing a blog, it was one of several options for something different to attempt. I think I came up withevery possible excuse not to do it. For instance, I don’t have anything to say. Everything under the sun is already out there. I’m not a writer. I’d have to produce every week or every other week or once a month. Regardless of how often I chose to post, there would be pressure. Doing something with pressure was not an option. What if I start a blog and suddenly find I can’t keep it up? It would not feel very good to start and not follow up for a significant length of time. All these excuses were defying any possibility of having an enjoyable experience.
So, what change of thinking got me to where I am now, some 35 weeks later. My best guess is I ruminated about all the reasons not to until I got fed up ruminating and told myself, “Just do it, already!”. Honestly, I am continually surprised that somehow I manage to post every week. Thus far, that is.
That brings me back to the present moment. What am I going to write? A little of this or a little of that? Okay. Neither. I think I will just celebrate my 35th weekly-versary. Thanks for stopping by. I promise to post something about something next time.
