I had a good conversation with a colleague about the process.
End results are, obviously, very important, but often times maybe we, as human beings tend to get stuck in our minds and try to make the end results or end products completely perfect as we can. Unfortunately, what it…

Writing as a form of meditation
One of the things I used to do, back in the good old days of Xanga, was write.
It’s something, that in my older adulthood, have forgotten to do. It has been replaced by the quick email, the email that could have been a meeting, the quick DM, the tweet.
I had forgotten that is important to slow down, to sit, relax, and take the time to thoughtfully prepare words that isn’t for business, isn’t for others, but rather, it’s for me.
It’s the act of concentration and writing that helps gather my thoughts and in a weird sort of way, defrag the brain. I need to do this exercise more often.
I used to be an avid blogger. I used to spend countless hours a week pouring over my words on an online forum. I used to craft just the perfect sentences, in order to convey just the right message.
And then, well, like most people, life happens and we get busy. We “figure” that there are other, more important things to do, things that are necessary for our careers, our relationships, and our time in general.
And yet, something pulls me back to the blogging platform — a place where I can simply share my ever freeflowing thoughts. A place where I can sit and just draft, and somehow maybe, be able to prepare work on my writing, somewhere where I can just write as a warm up in order to get me going onto my next project.
Yup, I think I’m still start writing again.
