"Do or do not. There is no try." - Yoda
My husband is regular blog reader. He has some that he reads every day, some that he reads every week. He reads my blog. Periodically (like last week), he says jokingly "I really like this blog. I wish the author would post again".
If you follow my blog, I try to post every week. I try to post on Mondays - a good start for the week.
"Do or do not. There is no try." Hmm.
The writing part usually isn't difficult. I get inspired to write & it just flows. I have a bunch of drafts, potential posts, waiting in the wings. So that, in theory, on Sunday night or early Monday morning, I can just polish a draft up & post. Done.
Or....not so done. Sure, I can come up with all kinds of excuses about why I don't get to my blog. There are other, more important things & people & animals that need my attention first. Sometimes, I get too in my head about the blog. I get hung up on polishing a piece. Or I decide that since I didn't post on Monday I should just wait until the following week.
It's like anything that you want to do. It's like Yoda says - do it or don't do it. (Yoda was yogi, you know). What is "try" ??? Try is that "well...maybe, if things go just right & everything & everyone is all set & the planets are properly aligned it'll happen".
Truth is, there's always going to be something or someone else that wants your attention. Doing is different that trying to do. Doing involves intention. It involves commitment. It's an energy that you call up within yourself & around you. So that what you want to happen, does happens. And hopefully with time & doing, it takes less & less effort & it flows.
At least, that's my theory & what I'm going to try...oops. I mean, that's what I'm going to do with my blog. Set the intention & blog every week.
Check back next Monday for a new blog!
