Just do it!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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’ย and bluephoenixrebel’sย 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 madeย 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.

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!

    This was definitely spot on. Welcome back and I truly see the similarities between the posts. God sure had us both share this at the same time.
    Glad you took the step to blog again, you will find an odd minute here and there and you will be fine. Looking forward to seeing you make momentum leaps along this ‘back to blogging’ journey. Love to Kiki, that’s such is a lovely name and now you have more material to share from…enter motherhood gist. Bring it on!!!
