It's been four months since I have written my last post. Pretty disappointing considering I set a personal goal for myself to write two posts a week. I am kind of failing myself there. Anyway, I've been thinking about why it is that I haven't been writing. I love to write so much and I have been literally avoiding it for four months. The apophony I had this morning was that the problem hasn't been me, it's been entirely situational. It's not that I love writing any less or that I am dreading doing it. I want to do it, it's just that I've encountered a writer's block so-to-speak. I have been feeling less than inspired to write.
This time, this season that we are all in right now has been a very uninspiring time. The news is sad, the world feels gloomy, depressed and angry. It's hard to feel positive or think positively. It's hard to feel inspired to write about something when you feel like what you're writing isn't going to make a difference and I don't want to share what doesn't feel authentic.
If I choose to look beyond the dark haze around me that is COVID, the upcoming election, oppression, and anger, I can see light. I really believe that when you focus on the good, the good increases. There is still so much good going on around us I just have to be looking for it to notice it. I also have to make the choice to take control over what I am engaging in and what I am allowing to take up my space. I have to train my mind to see the good in every situation and to focus on the good so the good gets better. I have made a few changes; stopped watching the news and I started following some Instagram accounts that report and promote the good that is happening in our world. While I think it's important to be educated on and aware of current issues, I also find it to be equally, if not more important right now to look for the good that is happening in our world. People are still working hard to make differences, people are still taking care of each other, people are still full of compassion and love and people are still positively impacting the world.
I think it's time for us all to be happy again, and while that might seem naïve to some, and much easier said than done to others, I believe it's a choice. I don't know about you but I like to come out a winner in all situations, in all challenges and I think that if you stay positive in a negative situation, you win.
