When You Forget to Do What You Love
It’ll be a sad day when I have forgotten to blog simply because I had other things on my mind.
It’s been a while, people, but I beg for forgiveness. I’ve been writing. A lot. Just not here. And quite frankly, you readers are on my mind more than you know.
Blogging is my passion. So why haven’t I been doing more of it?
Sometimes life gets in the way.
How often do we resist doing what we truly want to do in the name of reason? We argue that we will find time for it later, whether it’s playing with our children, spending a moment on the phone with a friend in need or exercising to keep our bodies and minds fit.
When you forget to do what you love, you forget the greatest part of yourself.
Has that ever happened to you?
If so, do you remember a time when you used to have all the time in the world to pursue your passion? Perhaps it’s as far back as childhood. But there was a moment in your life when time fell away and you were in the Zone.
You can get there again.
If you are feeling uninspired, look to Nature. Or Art. Or Music. Look to your friends. And most importantly, look to yourself.
What is most important to you? Can you answer that question? Most people would say it’s their family or their loved ones. But how much time do we really spend with them? How often do we make everything else a priority instead of what we say we love most?
Value isn’t measured in the minutes you spend. Sometimes it is more meaningful just to drop a line when you are thinking of that person.
And please remember to be careful with your word. That means if you say you are going to do something, do it. If everyone did that, we would have enough time to do what we love.
And that love would shine through and heal the world.
