After reading that text, I realized that, by putting my writing on hold, I was setting a pattern of inconsistency. I need to finish what I started. So yes, I will still be writing, perhaps a bit less than before but I will continue. Why? Well, it's simple, if I turn away from my writing even just for a moment just because the words became a tad bit difficult to capture, what else will I turn away from in times of difficulty? This will echo across every aspect of my life. That is not a trend I want to set, not a pattern I want to continue.
I have said through my last few post that I am on a personal growth journey. That means a lot of reflecting on my life, my habits, my personality, and all of the things that intermingle. It is difficult to look at yourself and see flaws, even more so to share them with the world. At least for me, it is a way to hold myself accountable for the continued progress of my journey. Be it for just the few people who have reached out to me and thanked me for my posts it is all worth it.
So I ask you, to take a moment and think about the patterns in your life, the habits that cause for a negative ripple to cross all areas of your life. Even the little things that seem like they aren't hurting much. What can you do to change those patterns? Who can you look to for your example?
Part ways with your excuses and open your arms for the successes to come!
