In recent months, I have had something of an absence of writing. Well, I say lately but in reality, I haven’t produced anything since August 3rd which is 122 days ago in case you weren’t counting. But, don’t worry it hasn’t been in vain.
So, what have I have done in those 122 days?
I started a new job, went on an 8-week training course, and slept more than I previously thought possible.
And, was I as productive as I would’ver like to of been?
Honestly, In the past 8 weeks, I’ve done nothing but slack off from my side-projects. And, If someone asked why I’d put it down to being away from home, away from my normal working environment but that’s not a real excuse, is it?
So, what was it? What was the real reason, I wasn’t working in those evenings away from home? I mean, it wasn’t like I didn’t have time?
After reflecting on my time away, I realise It’s because I wasn’t ready to come back to my solo projects. And, the more I think about it, the more evident this becomes.
You’ll Know When You’re ready.
Truth be told, I’ve been back home for a few weeks now and have been thinking about my solo projects for equally as long, but for some reason, I wasn’t ready to jump back in.
However, towards the end of last week and over the weekend, more and more ideas began to populate my mind and suddenly, the urge to work was back like a spark rekindling a flame.
The Moral of The story.
If you’re going to take one thing from this story, make it this.
Never be afraid to quit something you love. Don’t be afraid to take a few weeks to collect your thoughts and focus on the bigger picture.
And, when your inner flame is ready to burn, go light the world on fire.
I wish you all the best and look forward to sharing my thoughts with you guys again.
It’s good to be back.
