Distractions To Keep Us From Our Goals

I was shocked to log into this blog today to find that I hadn’t written a single entry since April … of last year.

It’s not like I haven’t written anything anywhere else.  It’s not like I haven’t done anything worth writing about.

It’s just that well … stuff keeps getting in the way.  There’s always something else to do.

I’ll write later, I tell myself.  But later never comes.

Then I start feeling restless.  I get angry.  I snap at everyone who even considers coming within 50 yards of where I am.

It’s no wonder.  The real thing I want to do … write … can only be dismissed for so long.

The still, quiet voice within begins to scream to get my attention.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

A blog entry begins with a single sentence.

Today I begin again.

I've been in a writer long enough to know that change is not only inevitable, it's what keeps us going. Don't fight it, don't fear it. Embrace it and have fun.
