Inspiration to do something that benefits our own self, someone else or the society is always welcome. But as we grow older, and may I add, cynical, inspiration is difficult to come by. We don’t trust anyone with good intentions because he is, of course, trying to fool us. A person with bad intentions needs no excuse. And for people like me, who are huge procrastinators, sometimes inspiration strikes and even leaves before the likes of us move a muscle.
In more than 3 years of blogging, I have not participated in any blogging challenges or writing prompts. I have always gony by the “I will write when I have something to say” principle. But I know that somewhere deep inside, I didn’t believe in the challenges or writing prompts. I didn’t think they would give me anything in return. But as usual, we learn our lessons hard.
After the birth of my little one, I had very little time left for myself and that time was needed to bathe, eat, poop and get some sleep. And, oh yes, blogging too. My head buzzing with ideas and rants and things to say, but no time or inspiration to write. And that’s why the cynical me, very hesistantly, signed up for the A to Z blogging challenge. I had no idea how I would do it.
But this has got to be one of my best decisions ever. All you guys writing everyday and visiting the blog and giving your precious feedback has been such a catalyst and morale booster. I have discovered so many new and wonderful blogs and people. Everyday I look forward to the next day’s letter and think about what to write. It has not only gotten me excited and happy, but has also brought on a little discipline in my life as far as writing is concerned. I know that even if I don’t have time for anything else, I have time to write my post for the day because I love it.
Thank you guys for all the love and importantly, the inspiration 🙂
