I’ve been scared to start writing again. Scared because I was afraid it had been too long. Scared because I didn’t know what to say about my absence since it was really just that I stopped making writing a priority. Then I realized what I wanted to say:
Well, I’m here now.
It’s a common myth, really. Thinking that it’s too late, or you’ve waited too long and now everybody else is ahead of you so you might as well just keep doing nothing. You hear it all the time from people talking about things like Twitter, Instagram, or podcasts: “Yeah, sure, they were able to build a platform with that but it’s probably too late for me to start.” False. It’s never too late to help people. It’s never too late to share your art. It’s never too late to make something. All you have to do is show up and say “Well, I’m here now.”
Please be here. The work you do is important and it’s worth sharing.
I am here now but Jeesh it’s been a long time! Sorry about that! Please know that you’ve been missed! For the past couple of months I’ve been recharging, refocusing, and refining. We’ve been traveling and planning retreats for creative professionals and all of those things have been good and amazing. I’ll definitely be sharing more of those experiences with you guys in the coming weeks!
Make something today!
Happy Wednesday, folks!
