The way I choose to share content means I don’t always have content to share. When it comes to my writing, I share when it feels right to, when my head’s clear, and when I have a raw and authentic piece that I am happy with. The truth of the matter is, my head is not always clear and my writing does not always make sense; there are times when my words are just spat out onto the screen without any regard for grammar or punctuation and with no desire to edit or alter the piece of writing. Sometimes my words are simply too intense, personal and triggering and I just don’t want to share them with the world at that moment.
As someone who has a strong desire to share my light with the world through many creative ways, I admittedly allow this to frustrate me sometimes. I can sometimes give anxiety a right old comfortable place to stay in my head. As I write this, my mind has seemed to have wandered (in slight panic) to that fact that the sun is almost down and I’m not going to be able to take the image for this post in the natural light that I wanted, so this post now going to have to be published tomorrow…
Really?! It’s time to breathe.
When I changed the focus of my blog a few months back, my main aim was to write with absolute authenticity. It was no longer to simply churn out a post at the same time every week regardless of the quality. I wanted to show people that you can be exactly who you are and absolutely thrive in this world. The world needs authentic souls. In the times of change that we are living in right now, being authentic is the best thing you can do for yourself and for everyone and everything around you. And this is what I have to remind myself of every day. I am being me. I am listening to my body. I am making an incredibly unique and positive contribution to the amazing evolution of the collective.
Many of you who choose to share content you create, probably come to a point now and again where you feel stuck. For me, this is sometimes because I have such an overload of information and ideas in my head that I can’t seem to make a start on anything. Sometimes, I have nothing in my head. Sometimes I just need to take a few days or weeks to plug out, fully immerse myself into the physical world and into my mind, body and spirit, and come back with the clarity I need to continue. And this is absolutely okay. Sometimes we allow our minds and outside influences to convince us that we need to do things in a very specific order or at very specific times in order for things to manifest ‘correctly’. The fact of the matter is that if we follow our inner guide, listen to our bodies, and do what we KNOW is right, regardless of whether it makes sense to anyone else, this will ALWAYS work in our favour. A period of perceived stagnation need not deter us from our missions and visions.
Release the pressure. You will thank yourself for it. And you’ll be happy to know that this post was published on the morning after i wrote it, when I could take the beautiful image I wanted, in natural light. And we all survived. Panic over.
