Wait For It

I forced myself to stop Blogging.

When I challenged myself to post a Blog a day in December, over time I hit a stride. That groove of posting everyday became a daily ritual, but was it fulfilling?

On into January, I was still posting everyday, but began to slow the pace. After posting The Mindless Activity I made the decision to stop for one week. That’s not easy once an action becomes ingrained.

It was as if I had created a new daily habit, but I don’t wish to become a daily Blogger.

I thought about it everyday, but told myself to wait. I’d hit the pause button and let the Blog ideas go. I knew from past experience not to pause too long. It’s very difficult to come back to it, with that struggle of paused to restart.

Some wait too long and don’t come back. That’s not for me, but I do want to hit a stride that works. Timing means a great deal while writing. To wait for that stillness, that deafening silence once the dust settles from the day or the week. Even if it drops to once a week, I’m going to wait for it.


  1. I feel like my next blog post will be about how often I blog – feel like it, actually do it, and so on. Like this one. I have found there are just times when it works in life, and times when it doesn’t – best for me when the urge hits, however frequently. But I don’t think I could ever post daily!

      I look forward to reading your perspective my darling! Yes….everyday was a challenge, but it taught me a lot. Similar to a lot of life’s challenges, it taught me what I don’t want. 🙂

    I took a long break this past fall. I didn’t feel the nudge to return until January. Life ebbs and flows, just listen to your intuition. I agree it should bring you joy and satisfaction. Life is full of too many shoulds.

  3. I agree, sometimes the words do not flow especially when life is taking many turns. We I write the words are complete very little changes are required usually spelling or typos. I write as and when it flows.

    I don’t like to force a schedule, going with the flow feels better!

    I think it’s awesome that you’re getting inspired to write every day. I start a draft, then come back to it after a week, fiddle around with it etc etc
