It has been almost a month since my last post on my site. That is the longest break from writing that I have taken since I began blogging earlier this year. The break has been intentional by no means. So much has been going on in my life, and the life of my family that I have gotten completely off track with my writing.
Knocked off course
Some of the greatest experiences in my life have happened over the past month, as well as some of the most challenging experiences in my life. And a lot in between. I’ve had a lot on my mind, and typically I’d write about it. But for some reason I didn’t. The title of this post sums it up best. I just didn’t know what to do (or write). So I’m taking my own advice and just doing something. In this case that something is writing.
Lessons in everything
I’ve learned from my experience as well as other people’s experience is to do something everyday. If you are trying to get in shape, then do a physical activity everyday. Even if you don’t know exactly what to do, just do something. If you have a dream to be or do something, then do something that will help you reach that dream every single day.
The time is now
You many not have a plan perfectly laid out, you may not even know how to finish the job, but do it anyway. Do it, make mistakes, and learn a lot from it.
So today, here I am writing, because I just needed to write. Tomorrow I will do the same, the next day, the day after, and so on. And I believe doing this will get me back in the swing of writing. It will get me back to delivering helpful content that will give you something, encourage you, and teach some valuable lessons in life.
Question: What do you do when you just don’t know what to do?
Glad to see you back, I was wondering what became of you these last weeks, although I remember seeing a short notification of yours about having to be away for a while.
I hope everything’s fine.
When something bog happens in my life… well, I guess I follow along, try to make a peaceful moment to take it in and meditate about it, sometimes I pray, sometimes I laugh — but it usually gets me off track with writing, because I need a calm mind to write.
I take breaks here and there too that are unplanned. Usually it’s because I’ve got a lot of other things going on, or I’m trying to read books that I’ve said I’d review and there’s only so much time in the day and only so much energy to do it all.
Life takes no prisoners. 🙂
This has happened to me as well. I usually go quiet when something big happens in my life. I need to think about it and take it to God. I like to think those are the times I am growing. Then I can come back and share what has happened & the lessons learned.
Yes, I feel like He has wanted my focus to be 100% on Him. It has been an internal battle for me to not be pressured to write (by myself)…it has been kind of weird, I have to admit. But I am glad I wrote today, and looking forward to writing daily again. I’m also looking forward to more growth and sharing it all.
Thanks for sharing Shawn!
