Self Confession: My Personal Guilt
I have been meaning to write this post for over a month now. Ironically, the resistance I felt when sitting down to write this piece is actually the topic I plan on discussing. Ain’t life funny like that?
It is an obvious understatement that I have been guilty of not following my goals in recent months. No new pieces of writing, no attempts at bringing in new readers.
My objective was always to write at least three blog posts a week. Get the thoughts out of my mind, and into tangible, readable sentences. Writing has not always been easy for me, but it’s a practice I thoroughly enjoy. Avoiding it this past month has left a sour taste in my mouth.
What are my excuses?
To be honest, I have plenty.
None of the excuses however actually hold any merit. It’s pure black and white. I should have spent more time writing, but I chose not to because I got into a routine of resistance. I got back into my warm ‘comfort-zone’ bubble and stayed there for a month.
It’s not just my writing that took a downward spiral in the last couple of months. My workout regime also took a tumble.
But alas! No more! I have started working out once again. I’ve also started waking up at a better time. In fact a couple mornings ago, I arose at 10:30am and felt guilty for over-sleeping. Progress.
Expect more posts from me in the next couple of months. I will be writing some book and podcast reviews as well as some detailed posts about the world of Positive Psychology and Goal Attainment.
I will not let resistance beat me.
