Don’t make excuses for not writing, just write.
I love that statement, except I had a million excuses why writing took a back seat in my life. If I am being honest, I abandoned writing and all those excuses boiled down to one, it was not the right time. When I started Breakfree the belief that my journey could touch or help someone else became my sole motivation, but only in my controlled setting. Once my life turned inside out, I lost my desire to share. I shut down and squashed my inner voice. However, that inner voice taunted me to continue to write, share and grow. So, here I am!
Every one of us has our outlet. The means to which we express our emotions or hopefully who we are as individuals. I silenced that part of myself and in doing so I misplaced my focus. Yes, it happens! I’ve gone through more life changes that I care to admit in the past two years; but honestly, so what. It’s not that I am ambivalent to what I have gone through; it’s that I now understand that trying to share during that period would have been counter- productive.
I use the words “counter-productive” because, how do I share what is happening in my life if I have yet to figure it out myself. Asking for help was not an option (this is something that I am working on). With every challenge that decided to take up residence in my life, I did what came naturally to me, assess, dissect, understand, adapt and own it. Granted, this process does not usually take a long time, but considering all that transpired, I would say that I am right on schedule.
So, enough about me already, I want to hear about you. How do you handle the craziness that life throws at you?
P.S. Thanks for sticking around while I got back on track!
