I had good intentions. I quietly took last week off of blogging to move my hosting over to a new provider and build up some content.
I did neither.
Instead I spent the week searching, frustrated and stuck inside my mind. I’ve been trying to discover my purpose, God’s plan for my life, for the last few years. I’m not there yet. And I was frustrated.
What about you? What thread (or root note) connects everything you’re doing creatively and professionally?
Arrgghh. I don’t know. I’ve been blogging here for 2 years trying to answer that question, but I haven’t quite figured it out yet.
But I’m so glad he wrote it.
I thought about it all week. And I mean thought about it. Like where I could barely think about anything else. Like obsessed over it. To the point of exhaustion.
It was so good to think about what my thread may be, but I think I let myself take it too far.
Have you ever done that? Have you ever started with something good and through your own compulsiveness turned it into something very different? Then you were just stuck inside your own mind, trying to find a way out?
It’s good to get in your mind. I’m not sure it’s a good idea to get stuck there, though.
When it happens to me it’s generally like stepping into the ring with a much larger, tougher and relentless version of myself. The smaller version, me, loses every time.
I come out bruised and battered. Maybe a little better for the lesson, but probably more damaged than is healthy.
Not sure where I’m going with this, to be honest. I’m thinking about my purpose, this blog’s purpose and a host of other things.
That’s enough about me for now.
What about you? Do you do get stuck in your mind too? What do you do to get out?
