Have you ever felt so tired of everything that is going on around you that you have to consider taking a massive break from your everyday routine?
Something similar has been happening to me, lately, and I have barely had any kind of time to sit and properly write at all. My brother thinks that I should probably take a break from writing everyday for a while, and as much as I want to, I think that I am so close to hitting my milestone of writing every day for 1000 days that I find it difficult to back out now.
It is something I have been seriously considering for a while now because I have so much going on that I haven’t been able to give my blog the kind of content that I had in mind. And frankly, when you’ve been doing this for as long as I have, you begin to run out of ideas and things to talk about a lot faster than you’d expect.
I know that there are people out there who do this every single day without a creative block, but that is just not how it is working out for me at the moment. I think I need to focus on getting my source of inspiration back. I want to be able to write like I used to before and deliver actual quality content over here, but I don’t know if I will take a huge break from writing just yet.
I’ve just got a lot going on for me at the moment and I feel like I need some space to breathe. All of us have these moments where we don’t really know how we’re going to get our lives in order and what our next process is going to be. I am in the middle of one such dilemma, myself, and I think that it is okay to not know where we’re headed sometimes.
When you find yourselves walking a path that not a lot of people you know or trust can guide you on, you find yourselves stumbling around a lot and learning from a huge amount of trial and error. Is it the practical thing to do, according to literally everyone around? Not really. But is it what you think you want from life? You decide.
A lot of people will try to tell you that there are much more practical ways to go about your life. But that is just according to whatever they have learned in their time with whatever limited options they had been given. A lot of it comes from a place of concern. I used to be very defensive regarding my career from these people at one point, but now that I realize that nothing I say is ever going to change the way they look at things, I’ve decided that I might as well do things the way I want to.
If you think that following your dreams is going to be cakewalk and not a day of work, I’m here to tell you that you’re in for a lot more than you’d expected. But then, it is also the most rewarding experience ever.
However, it does not mean that you won’t get sick of it and you can go on forever; you will get weary of the very thing you like, but that is just because you’ve spent so much time on it. You can always take a break. It is a healthy thing to do. Do not let yourself compromise your well-being, even if it is over your dreams.
Take things at your own pace. It’ll work out, I promise. Xx
