When Writing becomes a Chore

When Writing becomes a Chore

Hey there, it's been a while. 1 year, 8 months?

Life has been great with me, I've had the best wedding I could ask, with everyone I love around me. For this reason and many others, my writing hobby, and many other hobbies, haven't been active lately. Is that unacceptable?

When I get to a stable point in life, when I feel everything is okay, especially job-wise, I don't really want to do anything rather than my daily-job, then chill at home. And I don't really think it's bad, but many periods during the year my creative part asks me to create something.

Many times I've glanced at the screen, forcing myself, that's not the way to do it. As long as you commit to something, come back and do it whenever you want, that's okay. That's because most of us needs a purpose in life, that let us forget that suffering in life exists. Therefore, I assume that when there's not much suffering, you already forgot about it, then you don't pursue your hobbies. And maybe that's okay.

If your job is okay, your family is okay, and you're aiming upwards, that's all it's needed.

You won't regret that you had a "simple" life, as long as those ends are met, and if you really want to achieve more, there are many ways to do it.

Maybe not today, not now, and again, that's okay.

I already wrote about this, if you're still interested in this theme:

Overcoming Overwhelm: A Personal Experience with Notion
In the last two months, I found myself using Notion less and less. Specifically, I stopped recording my ROI system and only recorded my tasks. At first, I felt guilty about it. I had created this system, and I felt like I was failing because I wasn’t using it to its full potential.

About this website: I have 1000 ideas on how to proceed, for example one newsletter about Obsidian (I recently shifted from Notion, yes) and one more cozy and personal, where I don't think what I write. Let's see what comes out.

Have a wonderful rest of the day.
