I know that I often start these posts by saying “Today I learned ….” or some such thing. I’d like to comment on this, as it may seem a bit arrogant to learn so much, in such a short time blogging – 3 months. There’s no arrogance in the statement.
What I’ve learned about “what I’ve learned” came to me today.
As a result of taking this journey in which I write about how myth impacts my life, I’ve opened a door, a connection to ideas or energy or something out there. Psychologists may refer to it as the collective unconscious, and I think that’s probably correct.
It’s in keeping with the saying: “When the student is ready, the master appears.” As a result of this writing exercise, and the thoughts and energy I put into this process, I’ve opened myself up to the ultimate master – this collective unconscious – the universe and all of its’ wonder.
Ideas seem to jump into my head. I almost never approach my daily blog with a topic or idea in hand. Usually, I turn on the laptop, start a new blog editing session, and then wait to see what appears. And, invariably, an idea almost always pops into my head. That’s what I write about on that day, as I’m doing for you (and me) now.
Look, I know I’m still finding my voice, my cadence and the right content about myth and life for this blog. My intention to start writing was just that: To start writing, and to commit to it each and every day. I’ve done that for over 80 days now, and I’m proud of that accomplishment.
As I continue to write, I know I’ll get better at it, and provide more useful info for my life, but hopefully, for yours, too. I’m a “mission, vision, big picture, wanna help you” kind of person. If this blog becomes that over time, I’ll be very pleased and blessed!
So, today’s insight: It’s better to just start what you want to do, even if, especially if, you don’t know the way. It worked for me, and I’m sure it will for you, too.
Take the first step.
“Ship” as Seth Godin says.
Then, … do it again!
