So why haven’t I written in two months??? I asked myself this question, and my reply was that I was too busy or looking for the perfect material to write about. But if I am honest with myself (and lately I am being brutally honest without being hurtful), the real reason why I don’t write consistently is exactly the same as with eating healthy or exercising. It’s simply because I feel lazy and since I don’t think I will write a perfect column, or cook and eat a healthy meal, or complete a two hour workout, I simply don’t even start. Better not to fail, right?
Well, today I decided to do the same “trick” that has been working for me with eating healthier foods (adding veggies instead of french fries), or exercising a little each day (have yoga mat next to bed and do few poses every day). I decided to just sit down and write a few sentences in order start the habit of writing. My goal is to write 3 times a week, about anything that moves me, or makes me want to learn and move forward. No pressure, this is a self-imposed goal, and I only have to answer to myself. A few steps every few days will add up to many steps over weeks, months, etc.
Just with anything, the hardest part is to start. So let’s start…again.
