I was really struggling to write the past few days. It was hard to embrace the commitment to create at least once a week to give it away. This is something familiar because I made a lot of commitment to myself many times in the past.

Right after giving birth to my son, I promise  I wouldn’t gain weight. I read a lot of literature on preventing weights after giving birth, and I manage until I lost him. When I was gaining more than I should I started doing some exercises which lasted for a week. I also worked on my diet but go back to what I used to take a bit later.  I continue gaining weight to my heart’s dismay. I stop the exercise and diet plan altogether telling myself I don’t have time to do. I have all the excuse for not doing what I have started.

A few years ago, I work on my finances realizing there was something wrong with the way I handle it. I learned everything I can from selling real estates, investing in money markets, paying my debts, saving and giving. But after awhile I see myself in the same old pattern of dealing with money. I lost some of the investment and made some that puts me on a never ending chaos.

Writing a blog once a week give me some sense of accomplishment and a natural good feeling until doing so became a struggle. I keep making titles for my blog post but would not be able to publish any one of them. I remember how I wanted to write a book since time immemorial. I have titles every year and a few pages of them but never finish anything until I lost my son.

The thought of not being able to sustain the good things lingers in my mind for quite sometimes. I thought there must be some wiring in my brain I needed to check. I realized the energy I needed to sustain the struggle to do is the same energy required to do what I needed to. Awareness and discipline where to put the effort is the key.

It was so easy to beat myself up when I think I never do anything right. The writer’s block is not only true in my writing but in my life as well, block in doing the good things.  Now I see there are some things I recognized I was doing quite well. At least I write everyday on my journal. I just did it after all!

  1. Friend, you have helped me by letting me post my Instagram link for God’s blog in my hands, and I want to thank you for that.
    I was reading and I found out that you are struggling, and that blogging helps you by making you feel recognized. I appreciate that.
    But if want more than recognized, if you want to feel the true love, the true glory of God, may you faith in Jesus Christ lead you there.
    I’,m not at all saying that struggles won’t come. I mean how can someone win a race without participating on it. But I can tell you that the joy, peace and love you will get is immense, its more than worth the struggle.
    Turn your ways to God, God loves you friend, and He has a great plan for you, and I can be sure of that if you believe in Jesus Christ you will certainly go to Heaven. For there Romans 1 says there is no condemnation to those who are in Jesus Christ.
    Just ask God with you faith, and you will get all the things that you ask off.
    Amen Hallelujah
    God Bless you my dear friend.

    1. I know that feeling. After I lost my eldest son three years ago I don’t know how to get up and live life again. I feel like going with him. It was the worst nightmare parents could go through.And many times I felt like I will never be able to get out from the holes. Writing had been my rescue and connecting to people who have gone thru the same. We also got involve in our church community and somehow days passed and the struggle is not as difficult as it used to be. Thanks for dropping by 🙂
