It’s the mind that decides that ‘hard’ things are tough or challenging.
When we only do the easy things we suffer because all the things we really want to do in life are labelled ‘hard’ by the mind. It’s the easy things that stop us doing what we really want as we are tricked by the mind to see these stalling, avoidance tasks, as ‘easy’ and instantly gratifying.
We become uncomfortable in our comfort zones. Stuck just doing easy things and missing the joy of doing what we really want to do.
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.
