Life has been busier than usual of recent and it has kept me away from this blog longer than I would like. I mentioned this to my boyfriend the other day. He matter-of-factly reminded me that there is no schedule to which I must adhere. That there are no specific rules to follow, only those I set for myself.
He reminded me that it’s okay to take a break when time or inspiration may be lacking. And that lack of inspiration is not a permanent state.
Discipline has served me well…but like anything, too much of a good thing can be bad too. A sense of discipline keeps me on track, consistent, focused. And for that I am grateful. It also inspires guilt when I may “fall off the wagon” so to speak.
I am taking this opportunity to remind myself that life changes. Circumstances change. New commitments arise. These take more or less time depending on what life presents us at any given point. So while our dedication to something may be consistent, our ability to deliver on it can (and will) vary. And that’s okay.
Hopefully it’s a long life. And accepting its ebbs and flows is just a sign of flexibility, not a lack of commitment.
So fear not, even when things here are quiet, the wheels are always turning.
