5. If you have a following whose existence depends on your writing, let them go.
It’s rewarding to think people might not survive without your daily musings. They will. They should. Encourage them to.
4. There’s too much content on the Internet.
There really is. Most wisdom and recipes and advice is regurgitated from older wisdom, or from books, or from Socrates. Consider missing a day of writing as the Internet version of an eco-friendly move. Like instead of writing a post about re-writing your life story to change what happens in your life, you could write a review of Mandy Aftel’s Story of Your Life. Or not.
3. You have limited time. Should you focus it elsewhere for a day?
Have you called friends and family lately? I mean using el telefono, in an endless, winding conversation. Try using the time you’d write one day to call friends who may need to hear your voice and feel your love. Your blog followers will forgive you. Hey, you may even have a new topic to write about from doing that.
2. Your readers might appreciate a break.
We’re overloaded. Imagine having one less thing to read one day. Kind of like a gift.
1. It’s your life. Your priorities. Do what makes you happy.
So I missed a day. Honestly, I completely forgot about my blog and my work. Something else was going on:
If you’ve read this far, I will share that I wrote this under emotional stress of two friends having died in one week. Too many people are dying. Too many people are focused on the wrong things.
Take a break to make sure you are focused on the right things that relate to what’s most important in your life.
I hope this post helps you re-write the story of your day or your month or you life.
