To write or not to write; it really isn't a question
Many of us write these “blogs” with the hope of inspiring others or perhaps even ourselves. We want to help someone understand a concept or guide them to a cleaner perception. So we write. We struggle to place the most accurate information on the page we can and present it in such a way that it carries out the purpose that was intended for it. Then in most cases falls flat.
The words fail to lift off the page and fly, instead they act like balloons filled with concrete that act as ballast for a supertanker instead of buoyancy to lift the mind. It is at these moments that we often pause and consider why we do this? Why should we continue to write pages of words that fail to accomplish their Intended purpose?
Let’s be honest why should we spend the time needed to write these words that will sit unread? Words that are intended to inspire and perhaps even to encourage lie dormant unfulfilled quiet gathering dust on an electronic page filed under yet another failure. So why still try?
We write simply because we have hope, hope that someday one of our pages of words will actually learn to fly. We write in hope that eventually our craft will come together in such a way that these words will soar to the skies and matter, and on that day that hope filled day someone will learn and know and perhaps just perhaps have a better day because we tried one more time.
May your day be filled with wonder and just a little hope.
