… is that it’s over. This was my epiphany when thinking about how to restart this blog that I had started with great gusto, and then lost momentum. I have wanted to restart for a while now, but self-imagined demons and critiques kept me at bay. Then I had a bad day, and while driving back in Bangalore’s maddening traffic, I was grateful the day was over. Just like that, things started to look up.
From experience, I realize that this bad day can sometimes stretch to weeks, or months, or even years. But I also believe that no matter how dark the night, it not all darkness. There is always good that comes out of it, we just have to see it.
For me, the “bad day” for this blog has meant no writing for a quite a few months, 18 to be precise, and 15 days. But it’s over. I have questioned if I really want to carry forward, and why. And the answer is a resounding yes.
So, here I am. Ready to start again, knowing that the past is no indicator of how the future will go. I realize that the blog mirrors my life in various ways. And life doesn’t stop, neither will I.
The bad day is over, and I start again with new thoughts, new experiences, and new lessons learned.
