Today’s Blogging 101 assignment is to write a post inspired by another blog. I came across this Inspiration Point and it really struck a chord with me. I’ve been feeling guilty about not posting anything on the blog, so this thought and assignment came at a perfect time.
I’m excellent at feeling guilty. I feel guilty for not posting anything new on the blog, for not writing my thesis, for not knowing my lines in rehearsals, for not making it to meetings, for gaining a little weight, for not exercising enough, for leaving the dishes, for not completing my to-do list and having to move items for tomorrow’s list… Basically, I feel like a complete failure whenever I have to give myself a little air.
Blaming myself for things I haven’t done often makes me overlook all the things I have accomplished. Yesterday I woke up two hours early and went for a jog. I’ve been writing new story and blog post ideas into my notebook. I do remember my lines in rehearsal, and I’m getting better at improvising whenever I forget. I got a new idea for my thesis that will help me reorganise my thoughts.
