It’s ok to take a break
We all have this idea of how what is acceptable in society or in our craft
Work hard all the time, even when you’re sick, no breaks
You must write every day if you want to be a writer,
You need to eat nothing if you want to lose weight (that was sarcasm btw, do not do that)
However none of these are the case
You can still be very successful, working 20 hours a week and having regular breaks (read the 4 hour work week)
You can have a day off writing or whatever it is you do if you need a creativity break
And you can lose weight by eating more and not exercising everyday
Whatever it is in life, your allowed to take a break, otherwise life will just break you
None of us know why we want to write, or not at the beginning.
But once the determination takes hold we have to do it.
– Michael Baldwin
Not just with writing, but anything in life, we often have urges to do somthing that we never would have thought of doing,
We don’t know why we got the urge, but it doesn’t matter anymore
The determination has taken over we have to follow through our it will eat away at us, plague us until we do
Has some determination taken over you?
Destiny may be calling you, what are you waiting for?
– Jessica Brody
Perfection blocks us from pretty much anything we do in life,
I remember when I thought about starting this blog and I said to myself I’ll wait until I am a successful businessman till I start writing (Lol) because then it will be perfect
That would have been many years of writing not done
I always hear people say they’ll wait until they lose weight before they go to the gym < like what?
There is no such thing as writers block or gym block or anything block the only thing that is blocking us is that we want everything to be perfect
And nothing is
So nothing is done
Allow yourself to be bad
How much does it take to change?
They say, people don’t change
Or that it’s hard to change…
But I disagree.
It doesn’t take alot to change.
Change can happen from the smallest things.
Maybe something someone said that clicked with you.
Or a book.
I know many peoples lives had changed simply from reading a book.
And they have completely changed there lives around.
It doesn’t take a lot to change.
It just requires doing something different
A new page.
Every single day is a blank piece of paper.
You are your pen.
How are you going to write your day?
Are you just going to copy yesterday’s page
or are you going to write the best page you have ever written.
