Consistency has never been my strongest attribute.
I am a creative person. I love to dream and think of new ideas. I fall blindly into new hobbies with wild passion. I become whole-heartedly dedicated to my new hobby.
But sometimes those passions fizzle. But you know how it goes… life gets in the way, and so does procrastination. I could make up a million excuses for why I always stop, but at the end of the day it boils down to one thing. I struggle with consistency.
I think it is time for me to admit that blogging is one of those passions. I get really excited to start blogging, and I plan to write new posts. But ultimately I lose my way. Delaying my post by a day becomes delaying my post for a week. That week turns into a month, and next thing you know, I’ve missed almost a year of writing.
Perhaps one of the few things that I have been consistent with throughout my life is that I always tend to pick up my hobbies after I’ve set them aside to cool. I am not the kind of person who likes to admit defeat. So I pick up my old hobbies, and I always keep trying. Its time that I brush off the old cobwebs and start writing again.
Life could not be more busy at the moment: living in Dubai, working full-time, traveling in the next few weeks, and preparing for a baby that is on the way. But its better late than never! And if I am to ever become consistent, it is time that I stop making excuses and start making progress.
Here’s to promising nothing, and reaching for the stars. Life is short, so live it well.
