Future Me

Every day I have been writing in this space for fourteen days. That is not a long time at all. A habit supposedly takes 40 days or so (according to them!). So it is definitely not a habit yet.

But, if I can continue to write every day for the next year, that will be a whole lot of writing. Perhaps eventually I will find my writing ‘voice’. I currently think a writing voice is just some magical thing that real writers say you need to find. I really don’t know. It sounds very strange to need to find a voice=sound to write=no sound. Hmmmm English is very weird sometimes!

Regardless, what I do know is that if I write every day for the next year, I can only improve or at the very least process a bunch of thoughts together and gain some perspective?

I don’t know what will happen if I write every day for a year but I do know that I won’t be the same person that I am today.

We all change and grow, how do you want to grow?


Going, somewhere?

The phrase ‘go your own way’ conjures up all kinds of anxiety for me. Where should I be going? How should I get there? Why should I go there? How is my way, mine?

Is’ your own way’ a real place I’m going to or is it just a way of living. Am I doing it all wrong? Because let’s be honest I’m not really going anywhere in a physical sense or in a life sense right now. Life seems to be at a standstill right now, just treading water and doing my best to stay afloat.

How, where, what, when, why should I go my own way at all? Or is everything already my own way.
