Just do(n't) do it
Updated: Jun 30, 2021
I don’t want to write a blog entry today. I just don’t. It’s nothing personal. I have no good reason. I just want to do other things. And I have a headache.
I feel I should write today because it is essential to stay consistent. I long to build a diverse community of beautiful people and to build my business by helping people get to know me. Advisors tell me it is vital to write a blog and to stay visible.
I love writing to figure out what I am learning or to process emotions. When a topic resonates with them, I hear from people, “ooh – I so feel the same way!”. It seems to help people take a few minutes to explore what they are dealing with after reading my writing.
I have something I want to write about today too. The bittersweetness of life and how much nostalgia impacts me every day.
I don’t want to do it.
I'm technically retired and self-employed. I’m preparing for an international wedding in early August, unexpectedly moving soon if the seller can get their shit done and set a closing date, and my man is home for the summer. And heck, my Great Dane pup is finally feeling better and wants to play, which means Rico, the senior Chihuahua, needs a protector.
But my old habits say I need to sit in my office and work work work. I am a good person when I am productive.
I know that it is not true.
Breaking old habits takes breaking them - not just thinking about it.
So – I am just not going to do it. I don’t need a reason or permission.
If you feel the same way today or soon – you don’t need permission either.
Try just not doing it.
If you need an extra push – I formally give you permission not to do the thing.
Ciao my friends
P.S. Yes, I know I accidentally did the thing. But I put minimal effort in and hardly proofed it. Baby steps. ;)
