This is not the first time I have tried my hand at starting a blog. In fact I have lost count at the number of times I have had this grand intention.
Previously my usual blogging pattern has been to…
- Set out full of gusto.
- Find it extremely difficult to pass go.
- Become increasingly frustrated.
- Lose motivation.
- Provide myself with a number of great excuses to stop.
- Give up.
- Deal with the inevitable lingering thoughts of failure.
- Allow a long list of nagging questions to set in.
In particular… Why? or rather WHY, OH WHY?
Why. do I keep doing this?
Why is this so difficult?
Why can’t I do this?
Why do I give up?
But no matter how many times I asked myself, Why? I couldn’t seem to find the right answers.
So naturally, the only thing to do was absolutely nothing. After all, Who did I think I was? And just like that I realised the real question wasn’t…Why?
The real question was and always has been…WHO?
Who was I?
Who am I?
Who do I want to be?
So I’ve decided to give this blogging caper another go. You see I really want to find some answers to these questions. Actually if truth be told I really need to find the answers to… WHO?
Fingers crossed, I’m hoping this blog will be a place where I can think out loud. A space where I can collect and organise my thoughts. A space where I can write down a few ideas. A space where I can be me.
WHOever that may be…
