Something I remember from a book about journals – keep writing, even in times its difficult to write. Inspiration doesn’t come always, and sometimes the motivations and goals for doing something turn dim. The book mentions a lady who was depressed after losing a loved one, didn’t have the inspiration to write about new things, but keep recording seemingly mundane actions like waking up, sleeping and eating for a long period of time, and eventually that helped her recover.
Because I started this blog initially for myself, at times, I feel apologetic to myself for not maintaining my blog. Sometimes I procrastinate when I have too many things to write about. Then times swing when I’m unsure of what to write. At least I keep a little diary where I dump my thoughts and feelings in it and 6 months after I’m here, reading them helps me measure myself.
Have a great year of 2009 ahead, if I haven’t greeted you so, late but better than never.
