So, you sign up for something that you have to do on a periodic basis and it's fun… at first. Then, as life happens and you realize that it's a commitment, you lose the spark. The inspiration fades. And you find that it's something you've come to dread. A chore.
And now, you're afraid you've lost it forever. That you'll never get back that spark that it once had. Thoughts run through your head: I have nothing to say. I'm tired and over-worked and over-stressed and I just don't have time for it. Will it feel as good if I'm really not in the mood for it? Will I enjoy it? Will other people like it?
Just suck it up and deal. You made the commitment. You chose to do it. Sure, it's not a life or death situation if you don't write tonight. Yeah, no one is actually going to think less of you for not posting a blog every other Friday. Except for you. And - to be honest - you still really do love it.
So, stop it. Just sit down and write something. It's like sex sometimes when you've had a really long day at work. You may think you're not in the mood for it, but once you start, it just feels good to sit down and get busy. And speaking of that, now that I'm done with my blog tonight… Oh, Malcolm! Let's go take a bath.
