Five is Back!

What a ride it’s been the last 3 months, and with the conclusion of my athletic season I’ve gone from 0 free time to what at times feels like limitless time to sit around. The end of one hobby opens the door for another, and without question it’s nice to be able to sit down and write again.

Over the past few months I’ve also been reluctant to write more on subjects I’ve encountered on personal growth, and that added to a busy schedule provides a deadly combination of procrastination that admittedly takes a little will power to hurdle over.

All this to say I’ve felt uninspired, and unmotivated to write lately, and for a variety of reasons.

While I’ve felt super comfortable in writing about and sharing things that’ve moved me or affected me in profound ways, I’ve realized it’s hard to continue to do so and even more challenging to keep finding topics if I don’t have a deep, charged experience about it in some way.

Not going to lie, there’s even a little bit of guilt that goes into it.

Writing about things I know in theory or have experienced myself and sharing them for others to read is something I enjoy almost as much as I love mentoring or supporting those around me. But going into ideas in depth can really feel hypocritical at times in moments I’m feeling like I’m not living up to the standard articulated in some of my writings.

And in more honesty, this article is more of a chance for me to be open so I can comfortably resume the writing I’ve found such a passion for. Because at the end of the day this area is something I’ll likely always be a student to, and exploring these topics so vividly really lets me learn more about it- and helps turn ideas into practice by putting them at the forefront of every day life.

Falling in love with the life around me and the person I am has been a long, winding journey, but a process I enjoy and find increasing importance in as time goes by.

Perhaps a dull article for today, but one for my own sake and one to open back up to after a 3 month hiatus.

A dear friend of mine told me that a quality he admires is my consciousness and awareness of my own flaws coupled with a motivation to grow. And while there are multitude of qualities I admire in him, this is a small characteristic I hold close as I realize it’s my vehicle to ‘more,’ which is rewarding but only as long as there’s gratitude for the present.
