So I made the jump. I jumped out of my comfort zone. I put myself out there. I started blogging again.
Or more like, I wrote my first blog post in years and years on my blogspot blog. And made a commitment to blog regularly.
And then my computer broke.
So I had to stop blogging, and figure out what to do. I had just gotten into a groove of writing daily on the computer, and that came to a screeching halt.
But that is a part of life, I guess, and I have spent the past few years learning to get less upset at the delays and to somehow find meaning in them. What am I supposed to see or do while I am delayed from pursuing my goals?
As it turned out, the delay gave me some time to work on the purpose of my blog. I had been working on figuring out the focus of a blog for several years. Maybe most people don’t take that long, but I had a really hard time. I didn’t want to do something on a whim, without deep thought and meaning. I didn’t want to start something else that I would lose interest in, or that would become a burden. During the delay, some of this stuff became more clear.
I was finally able to get my computer to work. And somehow I ended up getting a domain and hosting and setting up this blog with WordPress instead of continuing with blogspot. This had been my plan for awhile, but it all came together smoothly and suddenly because of the delay. It just all felt right.
My life is so crazy right now, I could say that it is a bad time to start a blog. But I guess it is time for new beginnings, so I will continue to push out of my comfort zone, and go for it.
Is it time for new beginnings for you?
May all your new beginnings begin at the right time, and may they be greatly blessed.
