Hey guys! Been a minute, right? Well… more accurately it’s been well over a year! Wow! That long? *thinking*
What have I been up to?
I have been busy being a mom 🙂
I digress, but shout out to all moms. Whew! That’s all I shall say… for now…
1st of all, let me start by apologizing for my long absence. That’s assuming y’all noticed? But I’d like to think that you did 🙂 So here’s me saying that I’m sorry I’ve been MIA and also saying that I’ve decided to take Nike’s (nai-kee’s) advice and just do it! 😀
Yup! I’ve been procrastinating blogging for different reasons. Allow me to share them with you and simultaneously counter them…
1. I’ve not written in ages, do I still have it in me? Well, I’m writing now, yes? So yeah, I still have it in me. But seriously, this question basically stemmed from self doubt and thinking that no one would be interested in what I had to say since I’d been gone for so long. However, I had to erase this mind set when I realized that “write-able ideas” were still flying unwittingly into my mind even while doing mundane stuff like changing *Kiki’s diapers. So, yeah, I guess (I know) I can still do this, so help me God! Zealthinks’ and bluephoenixrebel’s kind/encouraging comments also helped tease me back here . Thanks guys! *hugs*
2. I’m too busy… where’s the time to write? Another lie I told myself. Still tied to self doubt. Truth is that you will always find time for things you are passionate about. So being a (insert that time consumer) is not enough reason to stop me/you from doing this/that.
3. I don’t think I can be consistent. Well, I still don’t think so. I don’t know if I will be able to blog regularly but I have decided not to let this stop me. Also, experience has taught me that once you stop procrastinating and actually start doing, ideas flow and a bountiful harvest occurs. So, I am giving it a go and hoping for the harvest of inspiring posts!
4. I don’t know if I can still fulfill the promise to inspire minds and enrich lives. That’s the promise I made here. To help me deal with this, I had to re-read some of my posts. I also read the comments from the awesome people that read the posts. Then I said to myself “hey, these people were inspired by these posts. Are you not being a cheat by not sharing what you have in you with the world?”
So, is there something you have been meaning to do? Start a business? Write a book? Earn a degree? Get certified? Have you been giving yourself reasons (excuses) for not doing that thing? Well, I have come this fine day to push you off your mental cliff. Go ahead! Jump! Soar!
JUST. DO. IT.
*Kiki: The priceless baby gem God gifted to me and indeed to the world. I shall be boring you with tales about her! Be prepared!
