I like these days where I feel that good tiredness. It is the fulfilled feeling of having had a productive day. After days like these, I want to get home, eat a good meal, take a shower, and then finally have a good night sleep. Even though I’m feeling tired, I also feel calm. I did everything I wanted to do today, at least when it comes to work, so why shouldn’t I feel calm? Only thing left for me is to end the day, and maybe even write something, which of course I’m doing right now.

Sometimes it only takes one line of text to start a blog. That one sentence that suddenly enters my mind, could be the spark to ignite a new text. I don’t even need to be in the process of writing a blog. At any time of the day a sentence could just enter my mind. Like it’s nothing. I like that more than when it happens when I already have an idea. Just hit me by surprise, and let me find out what to do with the words. It helps me use my creativity, and not think about the writing process too much. I just let myself sail along the waves of that one sentence.

What day better to get back on track again than Monday? It is the same as New Year’s resolutions. Start good at the start of a new day. Maybe it is symbolic to start with good habits on Monday, but it could be that that is just the push I need. Just start doing better, feeling better, at the start of a new week. Starting with something at the start of something. But it wasn’t the case that I really felt terrible or something. I just couldn’t find the energy to do something productive. I could keep going on about that feeling, and that my head just wasn’t in the right place, but I don’t want to. I’d rather think about moving forward, and get back on track again.

It really has been hard to write consistently the last two weeks. I don’t really know why that’s happening, but what I do know is that I want it to change again. Like I said before, I don’t really need to write daily anymore, but I still want to write a lot of blogs this year. How it has been going this month, I know for sure that I will start writing less and less if I keep on going down this road. So let’s take a turn, and ride down a new road.

I have been thinking about not writing today. That would make 2 days on which I didn’t write a blog. But I got myself to it anyway. I could live with not writing a blog one day, but two days are a bit too much. Yesterday I just really didn’t had the energy to write a blog. I had to work for the first time since two weeks off, and just was done at the end of the day. So I didn’t do a lot yesterday after I got home. That is kinda the plan for this whole week. Just ease in that daily grind again, and make everything work again.
