Well hello there, little blog. It’s been a while. I’m glad to see you.
Recently I read this post on Quora, and it’s inspired me to get back to this blog and to writing regularly. As the first point mentions, I’ve been guilty of consuming more than I create, especially in my free time. With the barrage of information that’s ever at my fingertips with just a few clicks, it’s tough to get motivated to create anything of substance. It’s particularly tough because I often feel that someone else is always doing it better–whether it’s writing, cooking, photographing, or anything at all.
I’m realizing, though, that it’s not about doing it better than they are. It’s about improving myself, and working to be better than I have been. With that mindset, the weight of everything else that’s ever been done lifts off my shoulders, and I can begin where I am. I can grow.
With that, here’s to writing. Here’s to seeing. Here’s to moving forward.
