Why I took so long to… Write!

Why I took so long to sit and write again, I have no idea.

It’s been a long wait between articles and I’d like to say life has been so busy, that we’ve been on the road non-stop and that we’re living it up like never before, but the truth is, we’ve been distracted.

Life has been busy and February is always one of our favourite and most hectic months, but on top of that, I have no excuse. We started this blog in mid-2015 for a few reasons, and as our blog evolves, so do our reasons, which is why now I think I can safely say, this blog is our platform to write for us, while taking our readers along for the ride.

One of the things we wanted to know when we started was if we could do it. For six months I think we did and we did it well, but now, with a move into the New Year and three months passing by faster than ever before, I’ve slipped into the (easier) habit of not… not thinking about it, not trying, not writing.

I also feel within myself that my ‘habit of not’ over the last few months has also suppressed my creative side. I haven’t written anything or picked up a guitar in so long, I truly haven’t done anything to satisfy my creative side.

So now, on another dark and wet Vancouver evening, I’m making a promise to myself (and to you) to stop being lazy, to bring back my creativeness and to start writing again. Why I took so long to sit again and write I have no idea, just writing this has felt liberating!

So, for the foreseeable future, I’m going to stop at one point through the day to sit and write. Like today, spend a minimum of 30 minutes a day, every day and write. I honestly don’t know what about, and whether or not anything will be posted here, but I will try because writing and creativity has always been a part of me, and with it gone, so am I. It’s time to be me again.

I’m also excited because we have a few new ideas for our blog, which will allow it, and us, to continue to evolve. Our motto, ‘everyday is an adventure’, still holds true, and although we don’t know where this blog will take us by way of content, it’s still part of us and our goals. So from here on, all I can say is, watch this space and we hope you enjoy our ever evolving journey (and blogging) as we do.

Thanks for waiting, and I look forward to seeing how this all unfolds.

Until the next post,

Mick
