Just Do It!

I was really struggling to write the past few days. It was hard to embrace the commitment to create at least once a week to give it away. This is something familiar because I made a lot of commitment to myself many times in the past.

Right after giving birth to my son, I promise  I wouldn’t gain weight. I read a lot of literature on preventing weights after giving birth, and I manage until I lost him. When I was gaining more than I should I started doing some exercises which lasted for a week. I also worked on my diet but go back to what I used to take a bit later.  I continue gaining weight to my heart’s dismay. I stop the exercise and diet plan altogether telling myself I don’t have time to do. I have all the excuse for not doing what I have started.

A few years ago, I work on my finances realizing there was something wrong with the way I handle it. I learned everything I can from selling real estates, investing in money markets, paying my debts, saving and giving. But after awhile I see myself in the same old pattern of dealing with money. I lost some of the investment and made some that puts me on a never ending chaos.

Writing a blog once a week give me some sense of accomplishment and a natural good feeling until doing so became a struggle. I keep making titles for my blog post but would not be able to publish any one of them. I remember how I wanted to write a book since time immemorial. I have titles every year and a few pages of them but never finish anything until I lost my son.

The thought of not being able to sustain the good things lingers in my mind for quite sometimes. I thought there must be some wiring in my brain I needed to check. I realized the energy I needed to sustain the struggle to do is the same energy required to do what I needed to. Awareness and discipline where to put the effort is the key.

It was so easy to beat myself up when I think I never do anything right. The writer’s block is not only true in my writing but in my life as well, block in doing the good things.  Now I see there are some things I recognized I was doing quite well. At least I write everyday on my journal. I just did it after all!

    I agree, it is difficult to continue what you have started while you are already busy in your day to day life. Even writing a blog once a week is a difficult thing to do, but as you said it gives us the sense of accomplishment which is worth the work.
    Also, I am really sorry for your loss. I have seen people who have gone through something similar and I know how terrible it is. But I am glad that you are recovering and the situations are better for you now.
    I hope it gets better. 😇

    I wish I could find the motivation to write. It has been 2 days and I feel like I can’t be bothered with it. Hate this feeling but can’t get my way out!
