Recently I saw a video about the top 5 mindsets in the world. You can think about that statement whatever you want, but these mindsets did offer me some new insights. For me, one of the most interesting ones was Kidlin’s Law. Kidlin’s Law states that whenever you can write the problem down clearly, that the matter then is half solved. For someone who writes a lot, you can understand that this one grabbed my interest. The general statement doesn’t tell us a lot though, so it was hard to instantly know if I agree with the statement. So what other thing to do than to do some research?
Some days I’m just not feeling it. Then I just don’t feel like doing anything other then mind-numbing activities. I used to feel bad about that. What good could a day be, when I didn’t do anything productive? It is the perfectionist mind. Whenever I would just enjoy doing nothing at all, the perfectionist mind steps onto the stage, and will tell me that I should feel bad for not doing anything. Now I really don’t care anymore. These days are also just a part of life. It is just the way it is.
The last two days I didn’t share a blog. I don’t have an excuse for it. Of course there were reasons for why I didn’t write, but I could’ve written something if I really wanted to. But I didn’t. I just didn’t felt like writing anymore after I got home. What the biggest problem was, was that I just couldn’t break through this energy dip. Normally that happens when I chill too long after I get home. Then I’m just really in the chilling vibe, and just don’t want to work on anything anymore. Today I am back again for a free writing session. I still have some ideas I want to write about as well, but free writing just feels good for now.
We cannot always control what happens to us, but we can always decide how we react to it. Recently I’ve heard many stories from people, who are only complaining how life treats them badly. Almost none of them wants to realize that they have the choice to react on life whichever way they want to. Everyone has their struggles, small or big, but it is all about your reaction to those struggles, to decide what the final outcome will be.
Okay, so it is getting harder to get myself tow write each and every night. The problem is not that I don’t have any ideas. I have plenty. The thing with a lot of those ideas, is that they take a while to write a blog about. Most of my ideas at the moment are ideas for blogs that are more suitable to write when I have time off. Then I can invest all the time and energy in them that I want. I also think that after being sick last week, and not writing blogs at all, really did something to my writing flow. I just have to get back into that flow again. The only way to do that, is to keep showing up. Even though this will be a short blog, at least I wrote one. Tomorrow will probably be a short blog again also. I most probably will try to write an haiku again.
