Question: So when did blogging turn from being a joy to a chore?
Answer: Perhaps when I realized that I wasn't doing it for myself.
Journaling is intimate, focused inwards to my heart. It allows me to be reflective and aware. A blog is similar, but I found that I held back on some truths. Many of those truths unveil a part of me that I am not used to sharing with the general public.
In the store, I'd like to think that I am being my TRUE SELF at all times. But I know that I don't serve my highest good at all times. I hold back. I bite my tongue. I shut up (even though it doesn't seem that way, huh Anna!!). People hurt my feelings and I allow it. People energetically help themselves without returning the love, and I allow it. People bring their baggage and attempt to leave it. And I allow it.
At what point do I say, NO THANKS! I love you. Please love me.
So, with that reflection, I say, goodbye blogging for entertainment. Unless I want to be entertained. Goodbye to blogging for information sharing.. Unless I want to share. Goodbye to blogging, without being aware of my soul's purpose.
THEN, when I do write something... it will be for my good, my evolution and my awareness. And if I change my mind, then HELLO to balance, hello to acceptance, hello to equanimity.
don't you just love a win-win?

Here's a quote to inspire me:
Don't worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come ALIVE and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
