9 years ago, I started a blog similar to my writing now, and I wrote over 300 posts.
I remember that the monthly traffic was at 25,000 page views per month. One month it jumped to 100,00.
That was the month that I stopped writing.
I didn’t make a conscious decision to kill it, but it died quietly like most things.
Writing the blog made me feel uncomfortable. I worried way too much about what people thought. I felt like I needed to accomplish more before I would have credibility.
So, I stopped.
Making the commitment to write every business day and following through has changed my life on many different levels.
It has helped me rediscover my voice. The more I write, the more I know what I think and how I feel. Disparate and unconscious thoughts merge into new frameworks and new contextualization of life.
I was afraid that I would run out of things to write. The reality is that the more I write, the more I’m inspired to keep going.
I’ve come across the same barrier again of feeling uncomfortable.
I am grateful that all these years later, I interpret feeling uncomfortable as what it feels like just before a breakthrough.
I now see being uncomfortable as something that say I’m going in the right direction.
