After a full year off from blogging, it turns out that I didn’t need a break … what I needed was a focus.
A little over 3 years ago I wrote a post titled, Choose Harder Things. Going to the gym had become “too easy.” I was just showing up. I would do the minimal workout that would allow me to say that I had worked out that day. I was being consistent, but I wasn’t being consistently intense. Writing felt that was to me this morning.
The process of passing an idea through this medium of writing changes its direction. This is not the same post I started writing last night when I quickly jotted down the premise.
The excuses I make for not writing are much simpler than the fear of divulging my deepest, darkest secrets. There are many excuses, but the one that has stood in my way more often than others is this: “I don’t need to say this. It has already been said.”
