I just wrote a piece for my “Daily Thoughts” blog and noticed that it was my 200th post – 200 days of continuous posting, wow!
I’m actually quite impressed by that fact, and encouraged to go on – over the weekend I was actively thinking of just walking away from this stuff – just stopping writing altogether. It was a 3am thought – which is always a bad time to be awake and thinking – but it has stayed with me for a few days now.
Much of it was caused by a conversation I had with someone – well, not so much a conversation – more an explanation to me about why something i believe in was bad. and why money was the only thing that mattered. And whilst I don’t have to take what he said as true, I do feel the effect of it still. How does the world value us? By how much money we have.
That may be a simplification, and I may or may not like it (I don’t), but it is generally true. So why am I spending my time doing something that will not make me rich? What is the freaking point?
I don’t know, and I can’t answer the question I was asking myself in the dead of night. All I know is that one day at a time, I got to 200 days of writing, and I am happy with that, no matter what others may think of it.
