I do that a lot. It's taking action where I tend to fall short. I can't always just choose one direction and stick with it.
There was a time when I felt I had a lot of motivational stuff to say. This isn't to say that I didn't have good, positive thoughts to share. But I got really stuck for awhile. When I shifted gears to just posting whatever I was thinking about to get my writing going again, I found myself rambling and losing direction.
So, I thought to myself, maybe I should just take a break and focus on some different things. I did that for awhile. I did OK working on some other projects, sure. But, I felt a strong need to getting back to the roots of my writing. That is, just write whatever comes to me without having to force a topic.
Well, I've been thinking, I’ve been doing far too much self editing. I'm not sure why because this never used to be the case. Taking the filter off can get me in trouble sometimes, but should I really fear that as long as I’m being honest and as positive as possible?
Whatever has been holding me back, I think I'm about to break through it. I feel like my struggles lately have to do with a lot of things. Really, I just have to get back to where I was before, never being afraid with my words.
I’ve been thinking, I probably should just go and write about it the best that I can.
