Blogging: sometimes life just gets in the way!

I have written before on this blog about the fact that I write because I enjoy writing and I write about no specific topic because the process of writing is as important to me as the topic. Which is not to say that I write about anything other than things that are important to me or interest me.

This last week I have been busy. In fact I have found myself frantic at times with not just work but what could best be described as the usual vicissitudes of life. The biggest loser in such a big week has been my writing on this blog. I just have not had the time to write. Equally, I have to confess I have not felt like writing much and in this context I would just be writing for the sake of writing which is not a smart place to be.

With the weekend upon me and more time to think I have realised in equal parts how much I have missed writing this last week and how happy I am that I did not write something just for the sake of writing. I am not going to say here that I am going to commit to writing everyday: I am busy and to so commit would lead to the path of writing for the sake of it.

What I will say is that this week has made me realise that writing is more than just a hobby; it is an important part of my life that I have to make time for when I have something I want to write and am passionate about. Here’s hoping this coming week is not as busy as the last and I make time to write!

Apologies for the neglect! Normal service to resume soon

Regular readers of this blog will have noticed the lack of posts this week. Thank you to those of you who reached out and asked what was going on.

It is simple really: for a multitude of reasons that do not need to be recounted here I have been left feeling a little flat this week. I have always said that when I am feeling that way I loose my writing mojo and so it has been this week.

I started this first week back from holidays (and no the flatness of the week has not been related to a post holiday malaise) focused on acting with a positive intent at work and that focus has worked with the year already off to a metaphorical flyer. With all that positivity directed at work though I have neglected to have a similar positive intent when it comes to the other aspects of my life including this blog.

Finding the balance “sweet spot” where every aspect of life is being dealt with positive intent is one of life’s great challenges that after this week I know I must working harder on!

And on that note: bring on the weekend!
