This is not how I would’ve chosen to start 2022.
The last couple of weeks, I’ve been: reading | feeling | trying | hoping | getting | looking | adjusting | realizing | setting | enjoying
When it comes to the big picture, I have a three-month attention span.
It takes three months for that initial burst of energy and enthusiasm to fade.
It takes three months to lose sight of my big goals, and get bored with the day-to-day grind required to achieve them. Three months to start to question whether those goals are actually possible, and whether I’ve got the drive to see them through. Three months to start thinking ’I don’t feel like writing today. I’ll make it up tomorrow.’
In other words, March was difficult.
I’m not going to lie: the last few weeks have been a struggle creatively.
