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.
After taking one step, the only way to continue is to take a second ‘one step’. Of course, you can not take the second ‘one step’ without first taking the initial step.
Any progress requires, one step and then another, daily small steps, they take us on monumental journeys.
It is all about the small. Big leaps are scary. So the mind plays up and sabotages, it wants no risk to its fragile ego, so it will convince you to do nothing.
The first step is all that matters, and the continuing series of ‘one steps’ or ‘first steps’ will add up to a monumental step but not noticeable enough to the mind for it to sabotage.
Small steps, done regularly = big leaps
Big leaps = nothing…the mind will sabotage it as it seems too scary.
Small steps are sustainable and become habits. Just keep taking them and enjoy the moment of each one. When we only focus on now, on the doing, we stay conscious and thoughts are silent.
We can focus on the doing and not the outcome, which means enjoying the moment and not stressing about the entire journey.
