Okay, who in here doesn’t ride horses?
For those of you who don’t, have you ever done it before? Like at a friend’s ranch, or at some retreat where they offer the opportunity to ride a horse?
One of the hardest things to do for a lot of new people is trying to get on the horse’s back. Like one foot in a stirrup, but unable to get on the saddle. You keep trying to pull yourself up but always start to fall down before you’re are able to get settled.
When it comes to writing this blog, that analogy is what I’ve been experiencing for a while now. When I have a good prompt, like when I wrote about the Nashville Statement or about seeing the Total Solar Eclipse, I can write up something pretty quick. But when I don’t finding inspiration on what to write about or motivation to even write fails me.
I used to post something everyday, and the weird thing is I was way more busy when I did post something everyday than I am now. But, here I am again trying to get back in the saddle and hopefully posting more.
Why? First, because I love writing. I love telling stories, I love sharing experiences or tidbits of knowledge. Second, because it clears my head. It helps my crazy ADD mind sort things out.
So wish me luck. I hope I won’t look like that one guy who just can’t get on the horse!
