I made a promise to myself that I would write a blog post every Thursday. A promise I never kept. But a promise I keep returning to. But why? Why choose to carve out time to write? Why force myself to think of something new to say each week? Why write a blog?
I love communication. I love being able to share ideas and concepts through words and images. I love watching people experience an “Aha!” moment as they see something they’ve never considered before, and I love having my own “Aha” moments as I learn from those around me. I love communication and I want to get better at it, and I know writing will help me with that.
But, as with all things worth having, there’s a price to pay. It takes time to create content. It takes time to work out how the finer functions of WordPress work. It takes time to find a niche and make it my own.
And so the days, the week and the months go by, and the routine is lost. Other demands take priority on my to-do list, and writing gets forgotten.
How often do we envy those who have worked hard and are now living their dream, and yet we’re unwilling to put in the hard work so we can live our dreams too? So this Thursday I’m taking as step forward and I’m writing.
Will you join me and take step towards your dream today?
