Today, is day where I nearly said ‘don’t do your blog, you’re tired, it’s been a long day’ and then I thought ‘but it’s nearly 6 years in just 3 days time to complete 6 years of continuous daily blogging!’.
That is my ego…that is me saying ‘must keep going no matter what’. However, I make the rules for my life, so I could just say ‘it’s late and leave it for tomorrow, because I’m writing this for the art, the craft, saying something that matters, not to just tick a box’.
The internal dialogue of the mind will argue this forever, if I let it, or I could just accept I wrote today’s blog, move on.
Nothing matters…it’s only the mind that creates all these dilemmas and drama to worry about.
After 1,986 days of blogging continuously without a break…does the writing run dry?
Well, yes, sometimes it comes instantly and other days I sit and ponder for a while.
The thing is I now do this for myself, I do this because it brings me joy in the moment I write it. Before the ego drove me on, I am the next ‘Seth Godin’ who has been blogging every day for about 15 years!! It was about my mind’s inner stories, the roles I had to fulfil.
In a strange way, I am talking to myself, except out loud to the world, well the people who read it.
At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter what we write or do, it is all personal and as long as it brings us joy now, then that’s it.
Complexity is of the mind and its sabotage to reduce any risk and simplicity and just being is of the soul that just wants to experience now, this moment.
