A long hiatus always comes with an explanation.
A need to explain the absence.
A reason for the why.
But maybe there is no need for such. The reason and the why matter not as long as I am back.
I have missed my space here on the internet, I have missed typing away endlessly as my brain dictates the next sentences, I have truly missed it.
My writing is meaningless if it does not spark an emotion in you,
it is meaningless if there is no call to action and especially when you feel like your time could have been better spent.
Today I am here with reason, with encouragement, with motivation for you to GET UP!
I have been down.
For two good months I have been down.
I have tried to get back up,
I have tried to read more, write more, create more, learn more, BE MORE, but I have failed.
I fell and I got comfortable on the ground.
I liked the plain old routine: eat, sleep ,work , repeat.
I was comfortable in not pushing myself, besides I had tried and it was not working. The creative function in my brain seemed to have taken leave and who was I to forbid it?
My comfort zone is my enemy but I lied to myself that I need to keep her close. That saying about your enemies and their close proximity to self.
Get up and get out, your comfort zone is a lie!
Stop with the excuses and get back to your practice.
We all know that ” Life is so busy” and ” …So tired from work” are our all day, everyday excuses, but excuses that will keep us down forever.
I was recently reading through some motivational emailers that I get and one really stood out.
It is the reason that I have taken time to pen this down,
mainly because I believed it and I was practicing it but not in its entirety.
INVEST IN YOURSELF.
Sure, invest in your work (you need to keep your job), your relationships and friendships but most of all invest in YOURSELF.
Put the work into YOU! Monetary wise and otherwise, do it for YOU.
Work late building you, rise early to build you, spend a few coins and better yourself for tomorrow.
When you invest in you, all excuses go through the window! When you really invest in you, the pain of wasted time and coin gets you up faster than you can imagine!
So here I am investing in me! 425 WORDS in today for a better writer tomorrow, some coins spent, for a lady with more than a first degree, two books today for a knowledgeable ME tomorrow, a morning work out for a fit ME tomorrow.
It is selfish, but if you truly want to make a difference, you have to start by making the difference in yourself.
I am making a promise to my future self, that I will put in the work, that I will sweat, that I will read more, that I will learn more, that I will move intentionally to being her everyday. The her that I envision for myself tomorrow.
You were made for more, for so much more! Don’t let it go to waste.
Today you build your empire, tomorrow you share your success.
Watch the naysayers and step by them. Those here for you will know that even if they have not seen you for weeks, you still care for them just as much as you did yesterday. They will let you build you, as they build themselves.
It is indeed a new dawn,
and I think I have finally found the reason for my space here on the internet. I have found what it is that I am meant to do. The work begins today.
Have you found you?
With so much love,
