I do that a lot. It's taking action where I tend to fall short. I can't always just choose one direction and stick with it.
There was a time when I felt I had a lot of motivational stuff to say. This isn't to say that I didn't have good, positive thoughts to share. But I got really stuck for awhile. When I shifted gears to being more “bloggy” I found myself rambling and losing direction.
So I thought to myself, maybe I should just take a break and focus on some different things. I did that and while I've done OK working on some other projects, I felt a strong need to getting back to the roots of my writing. That is, just write whatever comes to me without having to force a topic.
Well, I've been thinking, there's a lot on my mind that I need to let go unfiltered and see where it goes. I have been doing far too much self editing. I'm not sure why because this never used to be the case.
Whatever has been holding me back, I think I'm about to break through it. I feel like my struggles lately have to do with a lot of things. But really, I just have to get back to where I was before, never being afraid with my words.
So I’ll be oiling up the old prose machine again!
