I’ve made this commitment to myself to write every day, but I find myself “Making excuse about Writing” on most days. At the moment I’m using the emotional trauma of the feelings I’m having about my mother-in-law Mary’s funeral, but in reality it’s just another excuse. The thought comes to mind that Writing is hard Work!: “Now I can make writing really hard by just not accepting these thoughts as my words for today. Or I can make things a lot easier by just keep moving forward and keep typing away.” And the realization of making excuses in my mind as to why I’m having trouble sharing these thoughts.
When I should be Writing just to Write and not really being so concerned with the actual words and what I’m saying. But this is nothing new to me as I’ve experienced this very same phenomena all along with expressing my thoughts in writing. This brings to mind my post about how: “I am ’Making Blogging Hard’ but that doesn’t surprise me, I do that with most things in my life, my expectations are greater than my ability.” Which is a very good reason to keep practicing my writing and trying to overcome these self defeating prophecies I’ve conjured up in my mind.
Even though I haven’t worked very hard at writing this today, there is the feeling I’ve received the benefits from writing therapy, which I truly do enjoy receiving. And now that my writing practice is done I can get on with Enjoying Life and having a Great Day…Wishing you’ll the very best in Life!
