Has it Been a While?

Has it Been a While?

What happens to your writing – actually, what happens to any of your projects or ambitions – when you’ve been away for a while? So you’ve been busy – too much homework, too much partying, too much… Netflix? The rust sets in, you become complacent, you keep telling yourself you’ll do it tomorrow. I know, that’s what it’s been like for me with this blog.

I haven’t stopped writing. I’ve been doing it every day even though I haven’t posted about it. I’m a firm believer that the only way to get truly good at something is to practice it. Every day.

But what if you mess up? What if it’s been a while? It’s been five months since my last blog post, and I’m probably pretty rusty. But the only way to shake off the rust is to jump back into it.

Maybe some of us just need a solid motivational video:

Or some words of encouragement:
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

A funny meme or two?

Maybe you should just get up and go drink three cups of coffee.

Different things work for different people, but the real key is to get up and get back into it. The first day is always the hardest, and there are a million excuses why today doesn’t have to be the day that you start again.

But the truth is that now is, and will always be, today. We only have a limited number of them. So why not make this today the one where you start (or continue) something worthwhile?
