Ever blog out of sheer guilt???
Until the action, a decision remains a thought.
How many people actually read this blog? How many will read it and dislike me?
Does it matter?
My ego uses those three questions to keep me off-line on a daily basis. Not today. Maybe tomorrow, but not today.
I LOVE writing, it is one of my true passions. The false beliefs of “no one reads it anyway” and “they are going to think you are just another stupid hack” and “what you have to say doesn’t really matter anyway” have kept me from here.
But not today. I have created a goal of giving attention to my writing for at least 30 minutes a day for the next 20 days.
Already I’m having to put much mental energy into reminding myself that I started this blog for my own purposes anyway. If nothing more comes of it than the practice of writing and posting on-line, that’s going to have to be good enough. My ego bucks at the idea, but True Self knows that it’s not what I write that counts at this point. It’s THAT I write.
