7 Days and 7 Nights
It’s been a full week now since this all started. When I woke up with the need to share all the things I was feeling deep inside. I wrote this blog as a way of expression and the response I have gotten over the last 7 days has truly blown me away.
I couldn’t believe the amount of people who connected with my story or felt that they too had similar feelings. It astounded me and I felt this huge pressure to now carry out what I had started knowing that the world could possibly be watching.
It was both equally nerve wrecking and uplifting. I decided then that I would do my best to be as present as I could with writing this blog. That the main aim of this process was the consistency of doing it each day knowing that some may be truly profound while others could just be okay, and thats okay. To just get my thoughts out there. To do, because so often I would normally just stop, quit, give up.
So each morning while doing my best to not over think it I just start writing. Often it’s the first thing that pops into my head in the morning or me mentally dealing with things I’ve experienced in my previous days. It all seems to come out naturally like opening a valve of thoughts and once the last sentence is done and that full stop is placed, I let it go. Only for this whole cycle to happen again tomorrow.
I think processes like this are vital for life in general. To consistently create. To do because so much is never done. We all get to these places of stagnation as our ideas, dreams and desires stay in our minds. As the only way for all these things to ever materialise is through action. The decision to begin without over contemplating how it may end.
This blog has taught me that over this week and hopefully it still has so many more lessons for me along long road in which I will travel with it. I’m thankful to each person who reads these blogs and my only hope is that it may inspire you to start your own personal project that you’ve wanted to begin for days, months or years. To begin as life is too short to allow it to pass you by.
