I stopped writing a few months ago, and I’m not entirely sure why. Writing is one of my passions, and I gave it up because I stopped focusing on the positive things in life. I let the negative things take over, and I lost more than I gained.

Sure, I still write sometimes, but nothing I write seems to be right, unworthy of hitting that “Publish” button. Many things became drafts.

I lost that confidence I had in myself as a writer because there wasn’t anyone there pushing me to do it.

So what do I do instead of write? I distract myself with work, three jobs actually, and after a certain period of time, that doesn’t even feel right anymore.

Thanks to today’s Daily Blur, it’s time for me to break that spell, pick up my pen, and get back to work.

Here’s to moving forward…
