Life does not always go as planned. You see yourself doing one thing, and then all of a sudden you end up doing something else.
At the beginning of this year, I vowed I would continue writing. I would blog regularly, submit write ups, seriously begin writing my second book…
The plan was to travel and then write about my travels. The plan was to write about my fitness journey. The plan was to chronicle my every day and write about the new things that I learned from the business I am running. The plan was to write about the people that I meet and the experiences I shared with them.
It is already the last week of November. It is almost the end of the year. So far, I think this is only my fourth blog for the year. Okay, so I was able to have another published write-up elsewhere. But no new book… No draft even. I have (ghost)written several business letters. That’s about it. The longest I have written were — grocery or laundry lists.
Yey to the writer! 😦
Contrary to what some people think, I don’t just spend my days working out at the gym. Actually, several months back I said I will write about my fitness journey, but I never got around to doing that, as well… *sigh*
I have been running a business for eleven months now and it pretty much takes up my every waking moment. There are days of the week that I get so exhausted, I get cranky, I get so stressed. I go to the gym to de-stress… which, come to think of it, is basically why I go to the gym a lot.
It is hard to compose anything when your mind’s all over the place.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining about having and running a business. Though it’s a start-up and it’s small, I consider it a blessing. I also have every intention of making it grow. Thus, my full attention.
I am learning new things and I interact with people on a professional level. I am reminded of how it is to deal with subordinates. I get to boss people around. (Okay I am kidding on the last one… sort of.)
But when I am on work mode, I am on work mode. Sadly, my writing has taken a back seat.
Yes, I sometimes long for those peaceful moments when inspiration just comes easy and I can write nonstop. I do miss those moments. I haven’t had that in a while…
SO I was having quite a
crappy difficult week last week… then this came in the mail…
I have been immortalized.
…or at least, my published work lives on for fifty years after my demise.
God has a sense of humor… and His timing is always perfect.
He reminded me of a personal accomplishment, something I should be proud of.
Yet I also think it’s His way of telling me that if I was able to do it before, then I can do it again. When it’s time to seriously go back to writing mode, I will know.
But I am to learn what I am supposed to learn right here, right now.
I think He’s telling me to go with and through this season and just chill. 🙂
